What model/year Peugeot? (I have serial #)

Can anyone help me figure out exactly what model and year of Peugeot bike this is?

The serial number LOOKS like:
Y8G4 34093

I have attached a photo.

Speculations as to its value would also be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Based on the serial number, the frame was built in 1988. This means it is either a 1988 or 1989 model. The graphics match this period, so it appears you have correctly read at least the year designator portion of the serial number.

It is a hard to identify the components from the picture, but it looks like it could be a Versailles. During this period, Peugeot named most of their road bicycles after French cities; Marseielle, Bordeaux, Versailles, Nice, Deauville. It looks like the model decal is still there, at the back of the top tube, on the drive side. If it is illegible, knowing the components and tubing would help.

Thanks for the great reply! Yes, it says "Versailles" on the frame.

Attached are a few closeups of components, if you're interested in doing any further sleuthing. I'm curious about its value (assuming good condition).

Where can you find a list of serial numbers? I have a PH11 I'm trying to date. Based at the catalogs and brochures I've found on websites and ebay, I think it's a '84-'86.

KTK: nice bike.

During the late 1970s and early 1980s, first digit of serial number = last digit of year of production. (See my signature, below.) That's about all I know.

Determing value is difficult. It depends on mechanical and cosmetic condition, local market conditions and several other intangibles. However, as a starting point, I can tell you that the 1990 model sold for $350 US and was similarly equipped. The 1988 should have sold for slightly less, probably around $325 US. Also, the clipless pedals are a later addition and if sold with the bicycle, should fetch you a substantianlly higher price.
