So this is up on the local CL right now and I don't know this brand at all. Can anyone tell the model (approximate) from the tiny picture. Oh, and what it might be worth and if I should even venture into French territory.

I saw that one, I suspect the seller is Lester Lunch (or something like that). I think Sheldon Brown has some decent info on Peugeot, Miami Jim is probably a good source too.

I think its a PKN10 that falls into the 1979-80-ish range but its hard to tell. Downtube shift levers place it at the UO10 or higher level. UO10 frames, in general, mirror those of the UO8 and UO9 while the one pictured clearly has nicer lugs than the typical UO series bikes. The bike pictured also has sidepull brakes which typicaly aren't found on the UO series bikes of that era.

$75? I think its clearly worth that and it looks like it'll clean up nicely. BTW, its white, not yellow!!!

The real find on the Cleveland CL are the Skyway Tuffwheels 2 ads up. I'd be all over those in a heartbeat. Do a little legwork to verify their vintageness or 'old skool' as the BMX guys refer to things.

Any opinions on the 85 Ross on the same page? Too big for me, but looks like a nice ride.

BMX is not something that I know and don't really have the inclination to learn. It is bad enough that I have a boat load of cruisers (middle and heavy weight) that I am slowly selling my way through. They are another area that holds little personal interest -- I only like the bikes that I can ride or are like the bikes I can ride.

Of course, the cruisers are the only ones that have ever come up as buy this pile of 30 or 20 bikes for one low price. Oh, and then figure out a way to get them all home.

Looks like a nice bike....clean, shiney paint, recently overhauled (most shops $100 or more for that service). The 105 golden arrow work well and are very aestheticly appealing.

I guess, depending on your cash situation, they might be worth buying and throwing on Ebay for quick turn around. It looks like white pairs, with a freewheels versus C/B, are getting $60-80.

The wheels are also too far of a drive -- a shame.

So if the Pug is what you think, what is the value all prettified and tuned up?

Gone before I could call her back. First person who came out snapped it up. Well, one less bike to worry about. Thanks for help and I now have some pages bookmarked with Pug info.

Thats pretty much how Craigs List goes. First one to see it will buy it, almost guaranteed, unless seller misrepresents the bike. I have yet to not sell a bike to the first looker. And I have yet to not buy a C/L bike I went to look at.


If the seller tells you someone is coming to look at the bike, you better be there first, or you likely won't get it. The good news is that about half the callers (buyers) never show up, at least in my experience.

Looks like several reasonable deals on Cleveland C/L. If I lived in Cleveland, I would have to buy a couple of them.

There have been a few deals as of late. Much over priced junk too.

Bill, whats odd is that most of my best scores have been bikes that others have looked at and passed on. Today I grabbed a very nice Schwinn Circuit for $225 that 5 or 6 others looked at and tried to negotiate on. Heck, I even posted a link to the bike in the ebay/cl find thread..........last week. Turns out it has a realtively rare $75, white, Concor Profile seat and ultra super rare Cinelli LA 84 handlebars.

This one? If so, that white saddle must have been under a seat cover.

Interesting! I guess that shows that each market is different. Odd people would take the time to go look at a bike, knowing the brand, model, components, etc., and then not buy it.... Strange. Glad I haven't gotten lookers around here, yet...... I tend to get no shows, people that say that they will be right over (and then never show). But those that show, go home with a new (used) bike.

Thats the one. He said, 'do you want the gel seat cover?" "Um, no." All Suntour Sprint with a chainline adjustable sealed Suntour BB and Dia Compe RGC brakes.

The seat and handlesbars, once sold, will cover 1/2-3/4 of what I paid for the bike.

I had a looker today for my Raleigh R300. He calls me at 9 and says he'll be here in an hour. At 11:30 he calls to tell me he just leaving and it'll be and hour. At 1 he finally shows up. I made a 3 o'clock appointment to buy the Circuit and its 1-1/2 hours away.

If he calls back I'm so tempted to tell him its sold even if its still available.
