Peugeot Pipeline?

Hello, total newbie here, I was wondering if I could get some help identifying a cruiser bike frame that I have and get some thoughts on what it may be worth. After doing some research, I thought this might be an early 80's Peugeot Pipeline but I'm not 100% sure.
There is a serial number stamped on the bottom but it's so faint I can't make anything out. There's a plate on the front that says, "Peugeout Approved". I bought this from a place that did a repaint of the frame and added the seat, handlebars and tires. I'm a total newbie when it comes to this stuff so I appreciate any help in identifying this frame.

Thank you in advance!

JP

The frame does appear to be a 1989 Peugeot Pipeline cruiser. Same cantilever design, welded construction, dropped chainstays, chain guard and Unicrown fork. There are some changes in components but this can be attributed to customization by the previous owner.

Thank you so much for taking a look! I'm glad to finally have some confirmation as to what the frame is.

I'm looking to sell this bike and I want to be reasonable with the pricing. I'm just throwing a number out but does $150 seem right?

Wow! That is the least French-looking Peugeot I've ever seen. And somehow "Peugeot-approved" doesn't quite sound the same as "Breveté SGDG" either.

That aside, the bike looks very attractive.

What size frame is it? Did you end of making any modifications to it? I'm sure it sold quickly.

Sorry for being over three years late answering your question. I honestly am not sure what the frame size is or how to measure it properly. It uses 26in wheels. I never modded it but the guy who I bought it replaced the handle bars and I believe the seat post. I never did make the move to sell it until now. Going to replace the tires and put out there in the next week or so.

Looks to be a 18inch which would be considered a medium size frame for this style of bike.
