I think Peugeot actually had a model called the "501". This could be a later version of that model with updated graphics.
It was sort in the low end of their mid level line of bikes, with a sort of budget mix of Reynolds 501 CrMo main tubes on the frame and High Tensile carbon steel on the fork and most likely, the rear stays. Lugless construction.
Bike seems to be just in OK condition, but there's definite signs of neglect, so it will take some effort and money to get it ready for the road. Thus kicks it down on its best value rsting....... Maybe around $170 max., as-is....
Factor in at least 200+ dollars to replace expendable and a tune up to get it on the road (new tires and maybe a new chain will be needed).
It will build back up to an excellent riding bike as most Peugeots do, you will just have to take the hit of spending maybe close to or more than the bike is worth when you bought it, to get it back to shape.

If the bike fits you and is road worthy as it sits, then the price is pretty good, in my opinion.

Quite a bargain at that price, as long as there's no "fatal" damage hiding in the pics, like significant dents on the frame tubes or significant rust or a bent frame and fork......remember to budget in some restoration costs for your total number for the bike though.....

What about this one? it is for sale in my city for 125usd OBO. I might be able to buy it for the same price as the brown one, which is the better model? Would the blue be better? how much is it worth?

Blue one has stamped rear dropouts, it's one of the lowest models Peugeot offered, P8 or similar with a replacement fork. I'd also be concerned about possible damage on the seat tube where the front derailleur clamp sits, unless that's from the previous one.

You'd be a fool not to buy the first bike if it fits, it's in the mid/mid-upper range with the main triangle made out of Reynolds 501. I've got a Peugeot Nice I keep at work for quick rides that's 501 as well, it's an awesome bike.

PS - here's your bike - I hadn't seen this in the North American market so I assumed it was EU. I was thinking Germany or UK, seems it's French: https://www.bikeboompeugeot.com/Broch...oomPeugeot.JPG

Specs are correct - CLB brakes, 501 three-tube etc.

Model name Vanoise may be on the TT.

The two bikes pictured in this thread are different sizes -- maybe even two full sizes apart. Before picking out a bike, it would be helpful to figure out what frame size you need. (How tall are you? That would help us make an educated guess for frame sizes.)

Bikes are kind of like shoes in that cheap ones aren't a bargain if they don't fit.

It may be that the OP is a flipper (nothing wrong with that), as most of his posts are about identification/valuation.

So you're just aiming for a collection? If so, you might want to decide first and foremost if you're going to ride them. If you are, find bikes in your size. If you just want a collection for its own sake, size may not matter - but quality should; otherwise, what's the point, right?

It seems to me you're looking at a vast range of bikes right now, most of which (if not flips) are not worth the time or effort to restore. Just one example is the fake Colnago. A lot of work for little to no return. Just one man's opinion

Do you have an idea of what you want to want to end up with quality-wise?

The first bike is a much better deal the second one is Frankenbike bottom end early 80's frame with just a bunch of semi random mid level components on it. I would say pass on the second one unless your buying it for parts it is worth $100-150 parts wise but not much as a bike.
