OK Peugeot experts, what's it worth?

I have a 1988 Peugeot Triathlon that I will be selling soon. It is a 60cm Reynolds 501 steel frame. The paint is 9.5 out of 10. It has a very small ding on the downtube by the water bottle cage. It is all Shimano 105 with upgrades of the headset, bottom bracket and crankset to Shimano 600 tricolor. I haven't found much info about this bike from a price standpoint. Any ideas what it is worth in a hot bike market?

$250-$275, but I'm no expert. Can't see the ding.

@200$, due to ding and large size. List it higher and work down.

$350 used to be the higher end these Triathlons reached a couple of years ago. Because of the depressed C&V bike market, a more realistic price would be around $275 but the larger size of this one might usually bump that down a bit to maybe $225, as it limits the number of buyers that will be interested in it. What might help it a bit though is the Shimano 105 grooup on it that will be more familiar to younger buyers (compared to Simplex/Stronglight) that are now interested in retro/older steel bikes....so $275 in most markets is still possible....
