Peugeot PR10

I have a Peugeot PR10 and I was wondering what it was worth. It is a 12 speed with the original simplex rear deraileur, Mafac brakes, and the reynolds 531 frame. It still has the original toe clips (which i have off at the moment). The crank is the original stronglight, and the front hub is a sun tour. The rear hub is a superbe pro. The front deraileur is a suntour SL. Rims are continentals with Gatorskin tires. The bike has had a recent tune up and 80-100 miles on the tires and on the bike since the tune up. The paint isn't perfect and there is a bit of chipping but no rust except for some light rust on some of the original cable clips. New brake since the tune up.cables and grip tape. Much appreciated.

I am curious to know what its worth as I have a hard time with the friction shifter and I am considering trading the bike for something with index shifters like a Schwinn since they are rather common.

Where are you located? On a higher class Peugeot it can make a big difference.

Nice bike, but as far as desirability (and thus price) are concerned, it's not in the same strata as something like a high-end Peugeot PX-10. I'll let someone else help you put a dollar amount on the bike, but to help them out, could you tell us where you're located?

As for trading it for something indexed "like a Schwinn"... Schwinn and Peugeot both sold bikes at widely varying price/quality points, and they both sold bikes with indexed shifters as they were introduced and the market went that way. Much like any other bike maker at the time. If you do wind up trading your Peugeot for something like a Schwinn, just make sure you do it for (at least) a comparable-level bike.

If you like how your Peugeot rides besides its shifting, another possibility is to upgrade its drivetrain instead of selling or trading it. Having a 6-speed freewheel, there's a good chance your frame's rear dropouts are spaced at 126 mm. You could potentially swap your 6-speed freewheel for a 7-speed. Pick up some indexed shifters and compatible derailleurs and you're in business. If your frame has the funky one-sided Simplex downtube shifter boss, that might be a hurdle, but the swap is otherwise straightforward and not terribly expensive. Heck, you could even swap the downtube shifters for modern brifters if you're so inclined.

I believe the biggest material difference between PR10 and PX10 is the 531 main tubes vs 531 entire bike. You pointed out non original and non matching rims, along with a replacement deraiileur. Unique color, pretty clean, hot market.

In order to maximize value, you could part it out on ebay, if you have the tools and time.

Going to craigslist, you need to take some better detailed photos. This forum has lots of examples.
IMHO, I would list it for $350 locally. If you don't get any bites, knock it down $25 every 2 weeks.

SkyDog, just out of curiousity, what would you reccomend that I swap in? I have the mechanical skill to install the components but I am not a "guru" by any means when it comes to selecting components. I would consider swapping in the components if it wasn't too expensive. As far as my riding goes, I ride for exercise and pleasure, going fast and having the best and newest/coolest components is not a big deal to me. I do however like reliability. I am not sure exactly how to tell if I have the "funky downtube shifter boss" or not. I only know what came on the bike and that it is working and that I do my best to keep it that way. I will certainly consider all my options.

And thank you oddjob for the information.

Looks like you have clamp on dt shifters so no bosses.

There are all sorts of different ways you could skin this cat, depending on your preferences and budget. The cheapest way would probably be to swap your 6-speed downtube shifters for indexed ones, then add compatible derailleurs:

Shifters:
Shimano 105 6-speed indexed downtube shifters, $40 (new old stock) from Loose Screws

You'd also need clamp-on downtube shifter bosses that are compatible with the shifters. If you can't find an appropriately vintage one, something like this Origin8 clamp-on boss ($15) would work.

Front Derailleur:
Something like this Shimano 600 front derailleur on eBay for $14

Rear Derailleur:
Something like this Shimano 600 rear derailleur on eBay for $21

...plus new shifter cables and housing, so you're looking at around $100 or so in parts. Whether it's worth the expense depends on how much you like the bike. (It won't add to the bike's resale value.)

For not much more, you could opt for 7-speed shifters and install a 7-speed freewheel. Derailleur options would be the same. (If a Shimano derailleur will work with a 6-speed drivetrain, it'll also work with 7. It's the shifter and freewheel/cassette that determine the number of speeds, not the derailleur.)

If you'd prefer bar end shifters or modern "brifters" (integrated brake/shifter levers), you could do that too, but it'll be more expensive. New Shimano ST-A070 7-speed units sell for roughly $85. Add a downtube cable stop like this one for under ten bucks, a 7-speed freewheel for about $15, and derailleurs like the above. Then cables, housing, and bar tape.
