+ 1. I missed the bar ends. They're worth something but other than that the bike is not really worth parting out.

It's not completely original as the RD has been changed. Nor is it particularly valuable. This bike isn't worth parting out. I'd clean it up and sell it locally on CL. This bike will sell eventually...

Nice bike. The brakes look to be long reach, nutted superbe brakes and the quill pedals may be good quality as well. The brakes are worth some money.

I worked in a shop that sold a lot of Peugeots back in the day. We cut up some crashed/damaged carbolite frames and then used that to show to customers the work on the frames. The work was very clean.
