Old Yellow Peugeot

Hi,

First time poster. I am looking to buy a used bike to upgrade my dad's old road bike (1982, non-indexed down tube shifters, seat post too small for downtube, the bike is actually too small for me). I have a budget of something like $600 CAD ($450 USD) and found a nice looking Peugeot on Kijiji, a local ad site.

goo[dot]gl/YCVRVi

You need to replace the [dot] with a "." to go to the Kijiji ad.

After I asked the owner about the model and the shifters and he replied "OXII True Temper 4130 chromolybdene Alloy Steel Shimano total integration shifters 105. Production year unknown"

I'd like to know if this is a good buy for a noobie like me (only ~500km/300 miles last summer). Considering my limited budget, should I be looking at something different?

What model is it exactly? Is it worth the $380USD/$500CAD that it is posted for?

Kindly,

Steve

I'm pretty sure this is the bike.

Not to bad of deal for a small framed 105 equipped bike with brifter's if everything works good looks to be a nicer mid level model from the late 90's. One thing to consider is this is it's a fairly small bike for someone about 5'4"-5'6" or so.

No, it's worth about $100 less than his asking price. That's the problem when people decide on just one name brand; there are too many things that are NOT worth what the good models are worth. But, if you are very short for a man (or only slightly short for a woman), and there are no better deals near you (kinda hard to believe in a city of, what, 1.5 million?), then go for it-IF the bike is in PERFECT working order.

Hi,

I'm 170cm, so just about 5'7". So it seems this bike may just be a right fit based on my height. If I can snag it for $420 and everything is in working order, would you consider that a good deal?

Should I keep looking for something else that may be 1) cheaper or 2) better for the same price?

Thanks.

Edit: sorry about the link. Forums won't allow me to post a link without having already made 10 posts.

I think you would be fine at 429 CAD if everything on the bike is in good order and seems to fit fine when you check it out. Since your in Montreal you may one to consider a Marinoni which is a somewhat local brand for a nicer small vintage road bike there are a couple of nice ones listed on CL there.

The Peugeot's components appear to be Shimano 105SC which, in conjunction with True Temper OXII and decal style, places it late 1990s and would make it a Biarritz. However, I notice that it has a triple crankset, which would make it the Biarritz Triple and places it 1998-1999. Original MSRP was $1500-$1530 CDN, depending on exact year.
