Help Identify Vintage Peugeot Road Bike

Hi there, I'm new to this forum. I need help to identify a 10-speed Peugeot Road Bike which has been overpainted green for the recent Tour de Yorshire. It seems to be made in France. The original colour appears to be purple. Can anyone suggest what I should do with it? It doesn't have the original chain so I'm not sure which ones to buy online. Please help a newbie!

It needs a generic 6/7 speed chain. Probably an 8 series bike... P8 PH8...something with an 8 in it. Your local bike store can help you out....

Looks like one of the low-end, lugless Carbolite models. Should be a good rider, but not worth sinking a lot of money or effort into. Ride it "as is" until it quits.
