Peugeot?

https://apps.facebook.com/marketplace...t=sale%2Fsport

Would it be worth buying at this price then trying to flip? or I might keep it for my little brother if it fits him... either way, is it a good deal?

Also, can anyone tell me what model it is?

That bike is absolutely in no way a track bike. Limited flip potential (assuming you want to make good money flipping it). Lousy picture, looks like a UO8 or similar (bottom end Peugeot).

Bike is probably worth the price, but not as a flip. And it is not rare at all. There are millions of them out there (I have two myself right now).

+1 that's probably the fair market price (maybe $20-30 under fair market price.) Decent if you want to ride, not so much if you want to flip it.

I'm wondering how a guy 6'3" could ride that bike with the seat where it is. Looks to be about a 52cm bike -- how could someone 6'3" ride it at all? Maybe on a dare, but Jeez, that's a tiny bike for somebody over 6'.

Maybe like Fred Flintstone would ride it. In some parts of town that I ride in I see young people riding bicycles that are way too small and have the seats all the way down. Ortho surgeons must see these guys and just drool over all the knee replacements they're going to get to do in their old age.

If Facebook didn't want to know everything about me I'd correct the listing for this guy.

It looks to be a UO8 or a variant in rather good to excellent condition and is not a track bike but a tourer... the asking price is quite good and the frame appears to be 52-54cm so would fit someone who was five foot eight to about five foot ten depending on leg length.

These have relatively high bottom brackets so the stand over is a little higher than comparable bikes so one might ride a size down from what they normally prefer if stand over is an issue. Upgrading to 700c wheel would lower the stand over a little and really improve the overall performance of the bike as it would shed a lot of weight and improve the braking.

Decent entry level alloy wheels might run $80.00 - 100.00 a set.
