Have a Peugeot and need help identifying/pricing.

This bike was in my uncle's garage. I know it isn't a Vintage bike, but that's about all. I'm new the biking thing. It's a Peugeot and on the tag down by the pedal it has a
PH8 60
5041417

The bike has a blue frame with a sticker that says

Tube Special
Carbolite
103

It has metal/aluminum fenders over both wheels, a rack on the back, and a bike light generator on the back

Any help?

I know the carbolite 103 tubing was Peugeot's standard-issue steel, used on entry level bikes.
Beyond that, pictures are a tremendous help.
Welcome to bikeforums!! Stick around... there's tons of info here... I posted my "I'm new to the biking thing" last summer, and have learned a LOT in a short time.

Thanks and I plan on sticking around! Didn't know how to upload the pictures the first time. See the icon now. Does this help?

Helps TONS. I know that color scheme because the decal set is the same as on the Peugeot City Express that I bought to get me started with the biking thing. It's mid-eighties, like '84 or '85. If you google Peugeot catalogs, there are a lot of them listed. Start at 1984, and go through the images. Pay attention to the little details, and you'll have your bike ID'd in no time.

I'd do it real quick and tell you, but I don't want to steal your fun. It's actually pretty entertaining researching this stuff. I do it with bikes on CL regularly now, and I've scored a couple of nice bikes -- cheap -- as a result of my efforts.

Good times await! Have fun with it.

[[EDIT: For future reference, always take pictures from the drive side. Details such as derailleurs and crankset are often the determining factor between different models. And what's that writing on the top tube say?]]

Lowish end Peugeot, but I bet it rides very nice, most Pugs do. Looks to be steel rims, not the best for stopping. Kool Stop pads or similar do help. Pretty bike.

Per the tag above, the model is a PH8, 60 is the frame size.

J.Oxley is correct on the approximate year of the bike.

Thank you everyone very much. I'll continue to do a little more research but you have pointed me in the right direction. Knowing my Uncle I wasn't expecting it to be a high end racer bike...but I was surprised he had it at all.
