Peugeot earley 70's im trying to find out the model and what its worth

thanks for helping me. I have had this bike for 10 years now, im trying to decide how much money i want to put into it. when i got it it had a leather seat, i have replaced the rims so they are no help with identifing, only marking on fram i see are simplex, Serial #C351053 its riveted on the fram. The crank set is steel i think it is Stronglight 52, front and rear dyrailers are Simplex, Brake levers and brake parts are all Mafac, the Stem has a SR on it, Handle bars GB on the left / Premier Marque Grand Bretagne. I measured front seat post hole to the bottom of the fram at the crank it is 23 inches. The best i can do is 70 threw 74 , everytime i start looking at this issue again i come up with something different over the the past week of searching i found 73 or 74 model PA10E but who knows im hoipeing someone will have some insight thanks.

The Head Badge makes it a '70-'76; the crank a PA10, likely '73-'76. Serial numbers in the 70s do not help much.

Its worth as a keeper and its worth as one to sell are probably quite different. The PA10 is an entry level racer, roughly equivalent to a UO-8 but with racing geometry and a few other additions. UO-8's can fetch from $10-150 depending on condition, location, and the buyer. Some have gone for more, but those seem to be extreme cases. Dunno how the PA10 compares in value, but i wouldn't expect it to stray by much.

Yes, it looks like a PA10 and is very similar in build to a UO8. Value is all about condition and location. It needs some cleanup, and a tune up to get the higher values on condition. UO8s around here going for over $150 all have period correct upgrades: three piece alloy crankset, alloy rims, alloy seat post. As is, in a sane market, it would not bring much. In one of those insane markets: Portland or San Fran, it would go for more.

As a keeper, a bike like this responds well to upgrades. If the rims are already alloy, I would focus on getting an alloy crankset and replacement Simplex derailleurs (the better all metal ones, instead of the awful all plastic version). You can find the Simplex parts on ebay sometimes pretty cheap. Finding a french threaded bottom bracket to handle the crank upgrade can cost more.

That stands for Bocama, the manufacturer of the lugs. I'm not a Peugeot export but it's definately a PA10 varient of some sort. I thought 'E' indicated 27" clincher wheels, at least on a PX-10E. The PA10 is essentially the racing version of the UO-8. It was not very popular in the US because most people actually interested in racing just went ahead and sprung for the PX-10. It uses the same Peugeot house brand hi-tensile steel tubing as the UO-8 but I believe it has Simplex dropouts in back and uses clamps instead of the braze-on cable guides of the UO-8. I think the Bocama lugs were used to achieve racing oriented geometry vs. the "Aztec" lugs of the UO-8. There aren't enough of them out there to get an accurate price reference but I would assume it to be the same or a bit more than a UO-8 in similar condition. Just a rough guess, I'd say it's probably worth around $125-$150 max due to its missing many original components. If it were all original and in really clean shape than I'd probably say $200.
