Looks like a mid 70s UJ10. The price for this one is insanely high. Do a search on UJ10 and you will find other threads on this bike.

I picked up a UJ10 for $5, but it does need a lot of work... Finished, I could not imagine asking more than $150 for it.

UJ-10 sounds about right. That was a small bike, but made with full sized 27" tires. Available ONLY in a 19" (48 cm) frame size, otherwise similar to a low-end AO8 model. They were marketed for children age 11 to 14 in the US.

Notice the owner has added a super long seatpost to allow an extra 6" of height and he is probably killing his back trying to ride the mini-sized bike made with odd proportions when he'd really fit a 23" (58 cm) or even larger frame comfortably. He also has front wheel of this bike jacked up several inches for the photos by placing it on a bottom step of a staircase - which makes it appear as if this bike actually had a sloping top tube - which it definitely does NOT! And the stem looks to be pulled up way beyond its normal limit line, too.

I suspect he had made a bad purchase after having gotten used to seeing modern "compact" Road or MTB framesets and did not understand what 19" on a traditional bike frame really means. Probably didn't realize he'd be riding basically a circus clown's bike with this choice. His entire Craigs List description is also complete nonsense, so I suspect he had never owned a bike before and got suckered into buying this one.

However, if you have very short legs this bike might actually work for you. One BF member under 5' tall rides similar size bikes. Not a very light weight or better quality bike in it's day, but if everything is in perfect condition... ? [see it FIRST!]

Peugeot UJ 10 (1974)
