Maybe $50. They all say "Record du Monde", by the way.

The person selected pretty useless pics to make a value determination. I'd say $30-$40 is pretty safe.

Be patient with your search. To give you an idea of the disparity amongst prices check out these 2 Peugeots....

$80 and the better buy..... http://tampa.craigslist.org/bik/647605792.html

or, $200 for essentialy the same thing..... http://tampa.craigslist.org/bik/645270820.html

"What's it worth" posts like this one are usually moved to the Valuation Forum, but... since you're here:

Suggestions for anyone in this situation:
Do you mean your are looking for a racing style bike or do you want to get involved organized bike racing events?
Once you decide what you're shopping for there's several things to consider:

1. What's your budget? When you buy a used bike you should factor in a least $100 - $150 for necessary repairs and servicing.
2. Frame size. Finding a frame that fits you properly is the most important thing to look for. A bike that's too big or too small will rarely be comfortable to rise.
3. The frame and wheels are the most important parts of a sporting bike. The rest of the components are not that crucial and can be replaced or upgraded.

Good Luck

Just to jump in on this necro thread I will add that I sold a basically mint old Peugeot Record Du Monde 63cm (carbolite gas pipe tubing) bike with a mix of components for $275 in the NYC area a few months ago. The frame was garbage picked by my dad like 20 years ago in Brooklyn and proceeded to lay in a box for all that time, so it was basically NOS.

Building it up:


On its way home to a new owner:



I guess even old Peugeots appreciate in value after so much time lol.

Carbolite (103) is hardly "gaspipe". Are there other Carbolite tubings? I had a Carbolite 103 Peugeot for awhile and it was a pretty decent bike.

I stand corrected. I thought carbolite was significantly worse than Reynolds of Columbus of the era but then again I don't know much about that stuff. thanks for enlightening me
