I just bought thisPrestige Peugeot on craigslist -white - anyone know what its worth?

Hi, I'm new to this forum - but just bought this Peugeot - I think it says "Prestige" but the paint is chipping quite a bit.
Has white frame, chrome steering, however the handles are replaced with flat-bars.
The original shifters are on one of the bars on the frame.
Any help would be great! thanks,

Hello Welcome to the forums. There is not enough detail in the pic to determine what it is or how much it may be worth. How much did you? would you have paid more for it? What do you mean by 'chrome Steering'?

Looks like a mid seventies px. Like BG says, need more & better photos. Until we get them it is mostly guesswork.

Hi, bhikey-

It's ratty but really a great score. Your purchase looks like one of the mid-70s PY 10s hand built to special order in Peugeot's dedicated Prestige workshop which made all the factory team bikes and special custom builds. The Philippe handlebars are swapped out as are the pedals but if your find the right Peugeot enthusiast it might be a very valuable bike indeed.

It should be worth $300 in most markets. The low end strait bars and and seat hurt the value quit a bit. With the orginal drop bars and leather saddle it would be worth another $100 maybe more.

The shifters are worth that. I'd like to see shots of the mechs. It is likely this bike has the Super LJ derailleur set.

+1 to the workshop hypothesis. There's a nice chapter on the Peugeot workshop in an old book called "The Custom Bicycle." I can re-read it if you like and report back.

Value is at least 4/500$ IMO, but that assumes an ebay sale, and the quality of the paint really hurts. I mean really. It is from the Thevuenet era, so up the value a bit there, though.

Thanks, I'll get pics. Anyway to restore the paint? I bought it like that. I know it looks pretty raggedy. I was desperate for a bike for the weekend because my hybrid got stolen last weekend. I was desperate and grabbed this on c-list. Turns out it rides great and it much easier to transport than my other bike. Now it seems I actually got a good deal. I'll def have to do more research. I'll also get gear pics for you. Thanks a lot!

Welcome to the Bike Forums and nice bicycle. I am a bit of a Peugeot lover, myself and that is a nice one to love.

Though your questions seem simple and straight forward, the answers are anything but. With that in mind, I publish a website, MY "TEN SPEEDS", that is designed to help people, new to the vintage bicycle interest, avoid some of the stupid mistakes I made when first getting started. Perhaps spending a bit of time looking through the six or seven hundred pages will prove useful, and even entertaining.

Good luck with that bicycle and it just might clean up better than you think. Paint is easy to do and decals are mostly available for that bike, but any set you purchase will be incomplete, in my opinion. Not to worry, though, at least there is available art, should you choose to paint the bike, which you might choose not to do once you have taken a peek at Should I Paint My Bicycle?

Whatever you do, do NOT buy a spray can and ruin the original paint. The decals are rough but many of those are replaceable. The original paint, however, is only there once. And it doesn't look too bad, I don't see any rust.

I agree on $400-500 on a good ebay sale. Much less if you strip the paint spray over it. Only a professional should repaint this bicycle, and that will likely cost more than you're willing to put into the bike. For the time being, ride and enjoy this excellent machine.

From the pics I'd say you have a PX10 model. I say that for a few reasons, the single pivot brake mount, made with 531 stnadard tubing, worng crown (typical on PX10 models). the other markings suggest a PY10. I have a PY10 I purchased new back in 1977 so I can really only provide according to what mine is and how it is set up. If indeed a PY10 great bike, I'd suggest hanging on to it as they are pretty scarce. Good luck.
