1986 Peugeot Iseran P6

Hi,

So I'm new to the biking culture, and especially to this community. I recently bought my first bike for about $100 w/service. The bike I bought is a 1986 Peugeot Iseran P6 . It took me awhile to actually find the exact one online (there were many that looked like it) but I couldn't find a range of price for it. I'd like to know if I managed to get a decent price out of it especially since I was told about its quality and vintage series.

Specifically... It's mostly stock parts, except for new tires, tubing and a kick stand.
I tried to find as much numbers on it as I could for legitimacy of the stock parts. Note: There are a few scratches on the body and has not been cleaned in sometime. The man who sold it to me said it hasn't been ridden in years.

If the pictures were garbage ... feel free to roast me.

Thanks, for the input.

It's an entry-level but perfectly functional ride. $100 isn't the steal of the century, but it's not a bad price.

Now that you've got it, you've got some work to do, though... If it hasn't been ridden or cleaned in years, there's likely some overdue maintenance. Bearings need fresh grease -- headset, bottom bracket, and wheels. Rubber doesn't age gracefully, so the tires should probably be replaced. (They may hold air ...'til they don't. A few bucks can buy you some peace of mind.) You may also want to ascertain the condition of brake pads and brake/shift cables.

Other than that, ride and enjoy!

Thanks for help guys.

I was planning on cleaning it soon because it is very very dirty and the break pads are not in the best condition after a few rides... unless it's actually fine. They changed the tires and tubings free of charge. But I am very interested in possibly restoring the aluminum materials and cleaning the it as a whole. Is there any tip or advice or what type of substance I should use to clean or shine it with before I take it apart.

Also what makes this bike worth $120-$150?

Tanks

WD 40 is a mild enough solvent that can cut through most dirt and grease and not harm the paintwork and most decals (although, good thing is, Peugeot clearcoated over their decals on most of their 80's bikes. Just don't get the WD40 on braking surfaces and pads.
The Iseran is an excellent choice for a first French C&V bike, as it came out in te period when Peugeot was purging itself of most a French bike component sizing and threading, which makes it much easier to find replacement components, if needed. Plus, the bike should ride very nicely as most Carbolite 103 framed bikes they had from that era.....
BTW, most C&Vers cringe at the sight of clamped-on stands like you have on your bike as they tend to crush the chainstay tubes over time. Seriously consider removing it from you nice Peugeot, asap....

Definitive aluminum polishing thread here: https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...ng-thread.html Personally, I've never done any of the sanding stages, just used Mother's (buy the small jar). The results are still nice.

The Peugeot name counts for a bump in price where I live. Foreign = cooler.
