What model Peugeot?

Need some help identifying this to determine value guys. Serial number is B2086455. Frame sticker says vitus 181, brake levers are MAFAC, rear derailleur shows SX410. Rims have red stickers that say super champion in gold lettering. I have more pictures but files were too big to attach.

I tried to look up the S/N on the cyclespeugeot website, but the S/N link wasn't working for me. The closest similarity I could find from the catalog pics was PFN10 or a PF60.

The bike is completely original other than new tubes/tires as it sat in a friends garage. It still has the original leather seat, original bar tape, brake hoods, original water bottle, it may even have the original brake pads. One stand out feature on this bike that I don't see in most of the catalog pics is that this is a triple up front and it has a 5 sp rear cog. I believe it's somewhere between 1983 and 1985 as the bike still has the original city license number sticker on it from 1985 and the sticker from the shop that sold the bike. Paint is impeccable.

Frame size is (as measured by me) 63cm (center of crank to top of seat tube). Standover is 34.25" approx. so very big. I'm 6'4" and its a little big even for me.

I did take it to my local bike shop a while bike to see what it would cost to update some of the components to retro fit it, but the guy said the bike is worth more as it sits. He mentioned 300-400, but I'm not taking that as gospel.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I believe the triple crank makes it a PFN60.

I'd wager it is a 1982 PF60. See below.

+1 on 1982 PF60. There may be a paper tag by the left crank to confirm same.

I think your LBS is probably about right in the value estimate. If you were to sell it locally via CL in clean and overhauled condition, low $300s. If the LBS were to sell it, they could probably sell for closer to high $300's.
