It's an entry level bike from around the mid 80's. ( Could be any of Peugeots entry level models like the P8, P9, PH10, PH11 PH12...etc...as they pretty much have the same frame) Made from either Peugeot Carbolite 103 or HLE (Haute Limite Elastique) frame tubing.. I is pretty good as far as entry level bikes made with high tensile carbon steel tubing goes, mainly because of the frame geometry design that Peugeot used on all their bikes that results in a car stable, smooth riding bikes. These entry level Peugeots make for really good commuters and general recreational bikes. You cannot go wrong buying one in good condition, as long as the price is right. Around 100 bucks, max, in VGC. The mid to later 80's versions of these bikes are a bit more desirable, as I think they had switched them to British threading by then, so spare parts and repairs are easier to find and do.

The one shown almost surely has British threading. My 1984 Corbier (the P4 model) has British threads, and the pictured bike is likely a later model.

You are right that the Carbolite and HLE framed bikes are nice to Ride. Peugeot had a knack for it!

I dunno,..... I thought PH10s shed their turkey levers by the time this bike (with it's mid 80's graphics) was produced. Isn't it more likely a lower model?

Looks like a lowest model to me. Stem shifters and what look like steel rims mean that this a "campus" grade bike, made at lowest cost and so good for those who must leave their bike unattended.

Even in a college town, this bike in good-working condition might struggle to bring $200.

I don't know quite what Peugeot's quality control was like this late in the game. Quality was spotty on the 80's Peugeots that I've had.

1. Look for a high quality frame material.

2. Look for higher end component group.

This bike has neither. By the mid to late 1980s, you are not going to see stem shifters and stamped drop outs on a medium to higher end bike.

$400 for that bike would qualify for this thread: The Wacky World of Craigslist and eBay Ads


Myself, I would not limit the search to Peugeot. By the mid to late 1980s, there were a lot of great Japanese and USA made bikes out there, below the asking price of this bike. Italian bikes are super nice, but tend to bring 2 to 3X what a very nice USA or Japanese model will bring.

I think your right. I looked real quick at the color on my phone. That green was only used on few models... Its says the model name on the TT.
