Price Estimate for old Peugeot Mixte

Hey guys, my girlfriend is interested in purchasing this bike: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/bik/2276917854.html

I was wondering if it was overpriced or priced fairly well for what it is. Any estimates?

Thanks!

Realistic price for San Fran market, probably won't last very long. Decent mixtes are hard to find.

Nice color and it's a Pugeot Mixte, so it definitely has some appeal. - But I wonder why he's selling it with bad tires, ragged bar tape, and neglected to repack the BB. (Consider those additions to your purchase price).

didnt overhaul the rear hub either

but it sure is pretty - you know your market so this might be a good deal - i'd say the price is reasonable for a pug mixte

edit: though i got mine for $35

Run.

Mixte: A bike that some people love to hate, but everyone secretly loves. Also: hipsters and certain females find them adorable in their uniqueness. Seriously, go and get the bike if the price is appropriate to your market. Haggle the person to get a better deal.

I have one. It's been a particularly frustrating build, but smoothness is right, they have a secret pull.

....
Bear in mind that all the French parts you'll need "come free with the bike" - and only get expensive if they are damaged or worn.
