1970's Peugeot PBN 10 Record du Monde?

s-l1600 by John Bobey, on Flickr

Someone is offering to "make me a deal" on this bike. Just what might a "deal" price be?

--Peugeot tube special 103
--Simplex Prestige derailleur (SX410)
--Weinmann brakes
--ATAX Guidons Philippe handlebar
--700C wheels (Mavic in the rear, Sun M13II in the front)

Serial Number: 1387875, 64cm, says it was recently professionally serviced. Thoughts?

Pretty colors and a decent bike but made of hi tensile steel frame. Hard to give you any advice without a price.

I don't think you need it after the centurion. Nothing particularly wrong about the bike. The parts are decent and the frame is OK (hi tensile steel frame with forged drop outs) but I'd wait for something better.

I like this. Looks to be ready to ride. 150 would be a good deal.

I'd been looking at it and they had no other interest, so I thought if it was too good to pass up (at the right price) I wouldn't. Thanks for the feedback.

That looks to be more from the very early 80's.....

Fairly okay bike that looks to be in good shape, to keep it I'd be trying to stay under 150, if you want to get it and flip it I'd say you'd need to be closer to 60 bucks which is likely what the tires and tape were.

I have a similar bike from the era, and it has a nice ride. Peugeot did good things with inexpensive steel frames. The one you picture is made from "Carbolite 103" tubing, and the model is the Course. From what I can tell by comparing it to the catalogs, it was a 1980 model.

If you are able to ride it and like the bike, $150 would be an ok price. I liked mine enough to put some $ into it.

$150.00. If it is a Peugeot Course, like this one, a buck and a half is very reasonable. I have owned a couple of them and, even though they are not top of the line, they are really nice bikes to ride and view...

You've gotten accurate evaluations from everyone else here: It's a decent bike, not high-end though, more like lower-middle end.

I can't comment on the price. I don't believe in comparing the price against what you can probably sell it for. If you buy it to ride then it doesn't matter what it costs, only whether you could have gotten something better for the same price. By what-I-can-sell-it-for standards I've spent far too much on my UO-8, what with alloy wheels and all the other upgrades. But it's a great bike that I've ridden for thousands of miles.

So I'd say that's a decent bike that you can be happy with for years. (I've had mine for about 45 years.) It's not a bad price for a good bike.

Thumbs up from me, but a bit high-priced. (May be worth the premium if it fits you well.)

I did enjoy the ride quality of my PKN-10 (butted 531 main tubes; forks and stays probably about like that one's), and my lowly UO-8 is still the nicest workhorse/beater I have ever owned.

I'll break away from the crowd here and say I think it's a screaming deal. It's not high end but it rides as if it is. I sold and repaired these bikes in the early 80s. They were amazing deals.

So, I passed on the Peugeot. Seemed like less of a deal than I had thought, and now I can put that money into my Bottecchia rebuild. Thanks so much to all for the input and learned feedback!
