Can't say much without pics but based on paint likely early 80's low end not 70's. In which case the price would be about right if it rides with no major issues. Not really a good bike if your looking for something to ride I would say aim a bit higher in nearly any market you can do a lot better in the under $200 price range.

The Ventoux were late 1980s bikes, not 1970. It was made with Reynolds 501 steel, nice stuff, and was light for its era. Good components too. See here: http://www.bikeboompeugeot.com/Broch...0Page%2011.jpg

for the price, assuming it is in decent shape, i’d Buy that in a heartbeat.

Well, I am sorry to say that is not the same as the Ventoux I linked to. It is instead a low end model from around 1985 using Carbolite 103 tubing. The good thing is that Carbolite frames ride nicely - I have a 1986 Carbolite Peugeot that I ride perhaps more than any other bike. The bad thing about your bike is the steel rims on the wheels. If you can find a nice set of aluminum wheels the bike will ride much better, and (even more importantly) brake well in the rain.

What country are you in? That might help us track down the model. Peugeot made different bikes for different countries.

I am at a loss. Some of the parts clearly have been changed (the front brake for example). At the time your bike was made (1986-87 given the decals) Peugeot offered steel rims only for the very lowest models, the P4 Corbier and the P6 Iseran. But none of those low end bikes had a cottered crank at the time, at least not from what I can see in the catalogs. Does your bike have a serial number or name anywhere? Is there a Carbolite 103 decal or an HLE decal near the shifters on the downtube?

Seconding what Aubergine said. Itís 80s, and low-end, but with nice graphics and if 103 Carbolite frame, will ride nice and smoothly. Iíve had an Iseran and a P8 and they are not light, basic, but really pleasant to ride. However, somebody switched out the crankset on this for lower-quality rings and older cottered cranks, so deduct for that.
(Plus it needs cables... Well <$100 US & youíre fine.)

I bought and sold a P8 of about that vintage a few years ago. My P8 had better (as in cast) dropouts as far as I can recall. I admit I'm basing my comparison on the color/decal scheme.
