The picture is, as you suggest, hardly adequate for any kind of information acquisition. Based on what I see, the bicycle is close to entry level quality. Is it a good one? That would depend on the price and what you intend to use if for.

It's 70 $ and i can try to get it for even lower price probably and i can ask for more pictures if posible.
And my plan was to resell it....Put some work in it,i'm not sure is it worth a try of course.,that's why i needed an advice.
And since my country curency is weaker then USD selling it on ebay might be good.If you understand me about this curency stuff..
Still,i'm not sure about this idea...i'm not 100% ready to start the project,i was just curious.

I'm not sure it is a good investment if your object is a quick flip. It isn't a high end bike that people would collect, and a collector would want it with all original parts, and you are missing a brake lever, and not sure the one you have is original. Shipping on an eBay sale would be more than I would pay for that bike.

There are collectable Peugots, but from the one not very helpful picture, there doesn't appear to be one.

I would need to see a drive side shot, as well as closeups of any frame tube pedigree labels. Most Peugeot decals of a given model year look alike.

Look for forged dropouts (probably Simplex), integral derailleur hanger, and a seat post diameter of at least 26.4mm, and report back.

Buy to resell? $70 is way too much.

Get more knowledge about bikes and aim higher. Often, you will make A LOT more $$ on a bike you pay $300 for, than a bike you pay $70 for. Knowing which $300 is a steal is the key.

This is about the best advice so far. As a bike to sell, forget it! As a cheap bike to make roadworthy and then ride, with minimal fear of theft, much better.

And pay attention to wrk101 when he suggests that you need to understand what it takes to make up a quality bicycle that others will lust after.

This Marinoni, purchased for $250.00 has many quality bicycle features as well as collectable value. The old guy - not so much:-(

I don't know what model it is, but the gold paint is certainly attractive. I often buy bikes like this. Good basic vintage 10 speeds. After a bit of fettling you have a nice bike. Maybe not a huge monetary reward but certainly some satisfaction and maybe a small profit. Then find another one and do the same. Its a rewarding pursuit in more ways than one.

Despite owning and loving one Bianchi I don't really know the Bianchi models or years. But consider this: It has a Campy Gran Sport RD, not considered high-end. It has no obvious frame tubing identifier or even model name. It is missing crank, pedals, FD, cables, brakes and brake levers, saddle. Those things are not cheap. So the initial investment of $100 will be less than half of your total cost but the end result will not have any intrinsic value except as merely a good bike. It could probably be turned into a very nice riding bike, but it will not be the sort that of bike that anyone would have been searching for specifically. All of which is to say that though it can probably be made into a nice bike, it would be not be a good investment. You will not earn your retirement savings by re-selling it. Maybe you can turn a small profit.

Well that's what i was thinking about,but these coments helped a lot to change my mind.After all,the crank is completely non original,i would need to place brake set....and who knows what else since i can't see much from this single picture.
Doesn't matter,there is other oportunities...i was searching for some bike to work on when winter comes,i have one already but that one doesn't require much of a work..it's PH12.

The Bianch is decent, though can't tell the model or year. I highly suspect it is a repaint with a non Bianch paint schemeso it won't be a "collectable" If you are handy you could finish the bike, but you would want to get a campagnolo front derailleur as well(of the same vintage would be ok, but same model, Nuovo record would be ideal). You would want a good crankset, preferable vintage and European. Again for resale value Campagnolo would be ideal. You might need as much in parts as you pay for the bike, that is how it goes sometimes. How is the bicycle market in Bosnia? Here in Toronto that bike finished, even with that paint job would be $300, much more it were original paint and no chips.

If you feel comfortable installing these items, or committing to learning how to do it, you might make a few dollars.

I'd happily pay you much more than your original investment for your Marinoni
