85 Peugeot PH-11 from Europe

So I think it's time to sell this bike which was identified here.

Bike is in excellent condition. Not anything super desirable with the Peugeot tubing but it has some interesting details with the internal brazing and the internal top tube brake cable. The metal-flake paint is really nice too with the chrome fork. Still looks 100% like the picture in the original post.

Help with IP and Value of 80's Peugeot

Here's another I found that sold no price. https://steel-vintage.com/products/p...ke-1985-detail

Thanks for any help

Prices are down since your original posting, figure 1/3rd less.

See what your competition is asking for similar bikes. At that level, it's not a collectible, it's a rider. So exact model, brand and year have no bearing on value. And never confuse "asking prices" with "selling prices". In a market as big as Philly, there will be sellers asking sky high prices for some bikes. So look at the overall pricing and ignore the outliers.

Yeah, I'm seeing bike market is taking a hit at the moment the more posts I read. I've been out of the vintage bike mix for a good bit so wasn't sure where prices was currently.

I'd really like to sell it for a fair price to someone that will take care of it, it's in such great shape. I'm hesitant to just throw it on Facebook/Craigslist, but as you said it really is a rider vs a collectible.

The PH series Peugeots from the 80's were really decent entry level bikes. The quality and design geometry was good enough that one can modify it as the owner's riding skills improve and demand/need more performance from their bike.
I had a 1983 PH10s back in the 80's in college and I still consider it the funnest bike to ride that I ever owned.
They sill not bring that much money though, so best if you can sell it to someone with nostalgic attachment to the PH11.
Realistic asking price would be something like $175, even in excellent condition in most markets. The fact that thousands were sold around the world does not help.
