Looks like a later 80s model. Certainly not anything collectable, but still potentially a nice ride. Depending on condition (almost impossible to tell with those pictures) and model, it might be worth a $140-$150 offer. It really depends on how often you see nicer late-80s in your market. These pop up fairly regular in the Philly and NYC markets. But thats still quite a drive for me, so when one pops up in my backyard, I tend to be a little more generous with my offers.

Looks like a Peugeot Iseran from 84-85. I picked one up at a garage sale for $60. Cables, tires, tubes, and a chain almost doubled that.
They were a lower level bike, nothing fancy.

Some mills run better'n others. But that seems like a steep price...

I love when they explicitly tell you to look at the pics. And here I was averting my eyes for nothing!

Rather than guess about a bicycle's quality level, it is very helpful to simply understand what makes a Quality Bicycle. Once you have learned a little about what goes into making a truly good bicycle, you will be able to decide on an wide variety of purchase opportunities as they present themselves.

The Puegeot, if in good cosmetic and mechanical condition, is worth $200 in my opinion. But if anything is worn out, or broken, better reconsider that price and shoot for less. Shot tires, for example, are pricey and should knock a few bucks off of any asking price. Needless to say, this is just my opinion since Vintage Bicycle Value is a product of many things, some of which are not the least bit related to the bicycle.

Hope this is a help.
