1982-1983 Peugeot NOS condition

Hi,
along with other bikes, I recently purchased a bike that is all in original condition except for the saddle.
It is that exact same bike, but in like new (used 2-3 times) condition (!): http://www.mytenspeeds.com/My_TenSpe...troduction.htm
Alloy wheels, seat post, crankset, etc... very light. Paint is perfect besides 2-3 tiny things. I'm wondering what it can be worth in Montreal or if I should just keep it for msyself as it is a collection piece?

Thanks to this community for the useful info!

Pictures or it doesn't exist!

There are actually a lot of bikes out there that have only been ridden once or twice. People buy them but never use them and finally get rid of them after they've hung in the garage for 30 years. It really depends how the bike was stored. Also realize a 30 year old bike that's never been touched will still need a complete overhaul - fresh grease in the bearings, new cables, and probably new tires.

I have owned a few Peugeot Course bicycles (including the one featured on MY "TEN SPEEDS", and really liked most of them (some were too small or too big, eliminating the possibility of a love affair:-) They are very nice bicycles and, in your market, should fetch between $250 nd $350.

If you have the room and interest, you might want to keep the bicycle. It is increasing in value but don't consider it to be a corner stone in your retirement package. If you do decide to sell, now is the time with Spring finally here (might have been in Montreal for a few weeks by now, but just arrived in Thunder Bay a week or so ago).

You really need to post pictures of the actual bicycle. A lot of people mistake bicycle models when they don't know how to look for the differences. It may or may not be the model you think it is.

There are at least three Peugeot Course models, of varying quality. +1 to pictures of the actual bike. In addition, flip over the bike. Pugs from that period have model and year info on a piece of paper taped to the bottom bracket shell. This info may be missing, but it is handy if there.

NOS means "New Old Stock" so your bike, having been ridden 2 or 3 times, would probably be better described as "mint" or "in excellent condition". Anyone who has ever perused any category of craigslist knows that words like "rare" and "perfect condition" can mean many different things to many different people. But yes, photos will help.

Uhmmmm....I dunno if a Carbolite 103 framed Peugeot bike of any model, in any conditon can fetch up to $350 as mentioned, as Carbolite 103 was always just used on Peugeot's low level models. I'm thinking more like $250 as the ultimate maximum in a really hot market for a bike in close to mint condition such as yours might be..... $200 would be more realistic.

I wouldn't put much stock in that... Are they actually SELLING at those prices? I doubt it.

I recondition and sell Peugeot Carbolites, HLE, and U0-8s frequently. If the OPs bike is mint and doesn't need an overhaul, IMHO, it could sell for $250 - $300. If it needs work, hub/bb rebuilds, then take off $75.00.


Here is the cl listings for pugs

One of the Course models is Vitus 181 double butted. One of those might approach 250$ or more. The other two are Carbolite IIRC.

Rusty old Peugeots (Carbolite framed?) for 300 bucks in Montreal??
I have to see that, that's just nutzoid. You can't even sell a VGC PSV these days for anything close to that at eBay (They used to go for about $350, three years ago...)....Prices on most nicer Peugeots have been depressed in most markets in the last couple of years as it is....
