Peugeot and Shogun

Hi, first post and I was wondering what these bikes might be worth.
They are both my fathers bikes.
He bought the Peugeot new back in the 70's I think.
The shogun is newer.
Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks
I will try to get more info on the bikes.

The Peugeot is a UO-8 from the early-to-mid 1970's. It was an entry-level road bike. The good news is that they're generally well-regarded for their ride quality. (I have one and agree.) The bad news is that they're common and cheap -- often around or even below $100 -- and some of their original components have a reputation for failing, like the plastic Simplex derailleurs or the infamous AVA "death stem". (Your stem doesn't look original, so no worries there.) Maintaining an old Peugeot can require finding scarce French-sized and French-threaded parts.

I don't personally know much about Shogun, but can tell from the frame labeling that it was built from better materials than the Peugeot. Peugeot used cheap straight tubing for the UO-8. Your Shogun has butted chromoly tubing, which has thinner walls in the center of each tube for weight savings. The particular type of tubing, Tange 900, was typically used for low/mid range bikes. The stem-mounted shifters are another hint that this isn't a high end bike. But Japanese bikes from the 80s are generally of very good build quality, even the ones that weren't the fanciest or most expensive models. It's likely a good bike, but won't net you a fortune if you sell it.

Owning a Peugeot of any year and model is sort of a vocation.....
Even when I got my first one in the 80's nobody had to tell me that i owned something different from the other brand bikes I see around. Instead of considering it as a handicap, I looked at it as something special that made my bike not so common. The quite humble 82 PH10s that I owned first, being pretty much all French, gave it a sort of exotic flair to me that I equated to my father owning interesting Peugeots (404 Pinifarina coupe) and Renaults (Renault 17 Gordini coupe) when I was a kid. Frankly, if my dad weren't into French cars in the 70's, I don't think I would have owned a French bike like Peugeots. Maybe that's why I alos loved the Gitanes raced by the Renault team in the 80's TDF's.

The UO-8 - $100 if all working and complete. This one a little less - cable housings all wrong/cracked, no bar tape, largish size.
