Value on '80s Peugeot

Seller claims to be the original owner and says the bike is mostly stock. Frame has a sticker mentioning DB tubes and 181, so I'm assuming Vitus 181.

I don't necessarily 'need' a bike, as I'm sure many of you understand, but is this a worthy acquisition? If so, how much?

Peugeot road bikes are so pretty. I can't give any estimates as to the actual value. But from what I understand, their numbers are dwindling as they're snatched up by college students and hipsters who turn them into fixies .

Look for frame alignment, rust, cracks, damaged/missing components. At first glance it appears in good condition, and sure is a cutie. Those shifters are novel and nifty too. The guy will obviously negotiate, and if you don't like it you can always flip it. Sounds like a good buy to me!

I have a Peugeot Iseran that has Carbolite 103 tubing, and I know the Vitus 181 is an upgrade--just wanted to know how much of an upgrade..

Thanks for your reply!

Don't worry, Peugeot made Bazillions of bikes of all models and types. they will still be pulled out of sheds and garages by C&Vers to restore and ride through the next millenia and longer.....
They are tough like cockroaches and will outlive most mammals on this planet for sure......

I would think the Vitus 181 is a bit lighter, but maybe not as light as other higher model Vitus tubing like the 888, 983 or the 980. I suspect 181 is straight guage, heavier walled Chromemoly tubing (could be seamed too). Bonus over the lighter Vitus tubing is it could be stiffer.
Still a definite upgrade from the Carbolite tubing, but Carbolite was one of the better baseline bicycle frame steel tubing out there. Definitley not just lowly "gaspipe".

Probably. I've made drives that far or farther. I try to pick up multiple bikes to make it worthwhile.

Make sure the owner doesn't sell it while you are driving, I've had that happen a couple times, it really sucks.

+1. Call the buyer before you start driving. Tell him you are on your way NOW. I will even say, "It's a long drive, please don't sell it before I get there". If there is any indication that he might or doesn't care about your time and gas money, re-evaluate the trip.
