This Miyata for a bit more might be even better:

But I have a feeling it may be pretty nasty inside the BB shell, last time I saw that effect was when the bike was rusting from the inside out and the rust is making it's way to the outside...but it is also possible that just that area is rusting from the outside and once cleaned up a simple touch up will make it all good, but unless I could see that BB Shell I probably would pass on it.

The 2nd one was bastardized by adding on the modern crap and is worth no where near what they're asking for it.

That's older than 1984; hard to tell from the one poor picture, but I'd say 1981 at the newest. Still, a nice bike, and an interesting, non-stock paint job.

I wonder f the bent fork on this is one of the parts that has been swapped around. Looks like it is bent right at the very top of the blades or the bottom of the steerer.

I don't think it's bent, there is another pic that has just the headtube and fork and it doesn't appear bent there either, but there is always that possibility so someone would have to check that out very carefully before they buy..

Here is a close up of that area:

Yes; Peugeots often used head angle much steeper than their seat angles. Worth checking out, if you're local.
