Good Condition Peugeot

Dear Friends,

I came across with this ad, and think the bike is in good condition.

The seller does not know the year and type - if anyone knows can you please tell what this is ?

He asks 200 USD for this.

Thank you very much in advance.
















Thank you very much in advance.

At least you have photos

Oof...

That is a low-end Peugeot from the mid to late 80's. Someone else may have the exact model.

Note:
  • Pressed steel rear dropout (cheap)
  • Steel rims (cheap)
  • Bolt on wheels
  • Steel Handlebars
  • Cottered Crankset decades after they've fallen out of favor.
  • Pressed steel spider on the crankset.
  • Steel Front and rear derailleurs.
    .
  • TIG welded frame. This isn't a bad thing per-se, but it helps date the frame to the mid to late 80's.

That bike could make a good solid commuter that could last for many years.

However, I would not consider it to be a collector bike.

The actual value will depend on the person and the local market. I could imagine seeing that bike advertised for $200, but it woudn't be on my buy list at that price.

Yeah, looks like about 1987. Rear derailleur seems crusty, needs bar tape. Can't tell about the tires. In that shape maybe 100-125.

You should be able to spot what makes this a cheap bike: steel rims, steel handlebars, steel seat post, cottered crank, stamped drop outs, claw rear derailleur.

Cheap maybe not but those are all indicators of what is usually low quality.

Keep on posting! You have shown us some interesting stuff.

This seems to be an odd bike. I have a feeling the down-tube shifters and brake levers were replacements. Low-end Peugeots from this era usually had stem shifters.

A couple comments. This is not TIG welded, but rather « internally brazed ». The bike has a sort of lugged construction with the lugs inside rather than outside the tubing. The bike is probably from 1987 or 1988 given the paint scheme, and is probably a P4 model, aka the Corbier. I have a Corbier with aluminum wheels and it is a very pleasant bike to ride. That said, this bike is not worth 200 IMO. If it had aluminum wheels it could be worth somewhere around 150.

The steel wheels and cottered crank is a deal killer. Not worth asking price. Would be a nice bike to convert to upright handlebars & turn into a grocery getter. But for that, it would have to be closer to $50 for me to buy it.

^^^^^ I agree. In my area $50, and it is internally brazed.

Thanks for the construction notes. I had wondered why the joints appeared smooth. Still, an odd choice... at least in hindsight.

Tain't worth 200$. Others have explained it.
