Peugeot DF5

I'm building a Mixte for my girl. While searching for a frame I came across a not so cheap Peugeot DF5 in a fairly complete and unmolested state (rust and pitting on the usual places). It has a built-in reflector on the rear fender. I guess it would be cheap if I could pick it up; shipping is probably what's going to hurt.

Googling up 'Peugeot DF5' turns up plenty of pictures, but not much information. What can you tell me about this bike? And, of course, how much is it worth?

** EDIT **

Found a website with Peugeot models, I think it is actually a UE 18. Is it worth spending real money on or should I wait for something cheaper?

From what I've learned the UE18 was an entry level touring Mixtie here in the USA. I don't think it is worth a lot of money. I am upgrading a UO18 Mixtie which is about the same bike without the fenders and lights. I spend a lot of time on Ebay looking for parts and it and seems like the Mixtie frames are less popular and sell for less than the diamond frames. I'm not sure what real money is to you. Pics would help, condition of the bike and the year all play a role in value. During the 70's bike boom the UO18,UO8,UE18,UE8 were imported to the USA in large quantities. Ten years ago you probably wouldn't have even considered such bikes as worth the bother, but today even these bikes are getting harder to find.
