Difficult Choice between two bikes

Hi Guys, I'm currently looking for a nice vintage road bike, and I've gotten it narrowed it down to two bikes. Can you guys help me choose between the two?

The first one is a Vintage Peugeot Bike. 12 speeds, 54cm Peugeot road bike, 27 x 1 1/4 Araya wheels, Mafac Racer brake and Shimano deraillures.

The second one is a Men's Red Pro Tour, 10 Speed Vintage Road Bike

It has 10 speeds, a 23" frame and 27" wheels. It's built for medium to taller size riders, someone starting at about 5' 8" to about 6' 2" in height. It comes with top pull Brake Levers, top center mounted Shifters, new Handlebar Tape, New Tubes and New Tires, Shimano components, and newly serviced brakes.

First bike is gone, second bike looks like a typical department store entry level bike from the bike boom. Shimano components really means nothing. Go to Walmart, you will see Shimano components on bikes they sell for $75. Shimano makes everything from Walmart quality to top of the line stuff.

Model names were made up by creative marketing departments, names like "Pro", "Tour", "Grand", "Deluxe", "Light Weight", "Racer", are often used with no relationship to the bike itself.
