Peugeot never made a Champion du monde. Search the internet for Peugeot catalogs. OK, I looked at your pics. It looks like a UO8 with the crappy plastic Simplex rear derailleur. They commonly broke. Lots of threads out there with recommendations on replacements.

Spend some time on google, and you will become an expert in short order. Peugeot made many millions of the UO8s.

Not much value due to condition and rust.
