Calling all the Peugeot (and Vintage Generlists) Experts

I picked up this CL find today for $60, somewhat against my better judgement. It's some sort of Peugeot with a grab bag of components. It has what I think is an old bulky Campy derailleur, Campy cranks with a Shimano RX100 front derailleur and 105 shifters that were both clearly installed later in life. Brakes and levers are Modolo Speedy. Headset is Stronglight and stem ATAX. Can't tell what the Rims and hubs are yet.

Anyway, the frame has no seat post clamp or binder which I've learned is normal on some Peugeots; some sort of wedge in the post that works like a quill stem. The frame is pretty much rust free but was Rustoleumed a long time ago and there are no stickers or numbers to ID. The chrome fork is in good shape and has the prancing lion (or whatever it's called) on the tops of the crown. It looks like it was probably a bronze color at one time (look under the headset) and I think I may see some light blue on the seat tube.

On to the questions:

1) Any idea which model this is and what year?
2) Is it worth putting $ into or better to part out?
3) I figure the cranks have some value. Any value in the old Campy derailleur?
4) Any collectiblity/value to the Modolo Speedy brakeset?
5) Did I just throw $60 away?

I figure if anyone knows the answers to this beast, it's you guys. Thanks!

Could be wrong, but I don't think that's a Peugeot frame.

Its a part out, should be a profitable one if you have the time/tools/aptitude and willingness to deal with eBay. Values can all be found searching completed auctions that sold. RX100 and 105 bits are better saved for a future project or trade bait (limited market value). Anything Campy has value, as does the quill seat post.

If it fits, you are resourceful, and you want something less likely to be stolen, this would be a good choice.

I wondered that at first but I think thing the whole binderless seat post system is a pretty sure sign of Peugeot, no?

Chrome fork with the Peugeot Lion isn't enough of a clue?

1985 PGN10 has quill seat post and chrome fork. Reynolds 501 tubeset.

Ya, it's a Peugeot. Just went out to the garage and checked the Simplex dropout on my '88 bike- it's the same thing but no chrome.

Thanks to all for the feedback. You guys pointed me in the right direction and I found some catalogs online confirming the bike is a 1985 PSN10. Original champagne color, Campy Victory, Modolo brakes and Avenir saddle match up to the catalog. My scale even matches the 22lb spec. Could be a great bike but I think I'll use the parts and donate the frame to a fixie hipster.

FYI,, if it is indeed a Peugeot PSN, which I think it is, judging from the components still on the bike, that isn't just a giveaway gas pipe cheapey frame. Its made from very lightweight Supervitus 980 tubing. Pretty much one of the best/lightest the French frame tubing manufacturer made in the 80's. If it's not too rusted up, it is certainly worth restoring back to it's former glory. Decals for the bike are easy to find at eBay, if you willl do a respray/refinish on it......

if you part it out, sell it with the quill seat post. They are impossible to find and are integral to the frame design.

Good call. I'm going to hang it up for a while and dwell on it while I finish some other projects. It may end up being a candidate for my first garage repaint. The frame will clean up easy and I'm impressed with the results I've seen people have. We will see....
