Sigh... Tales of a Bike Addict

So I had to run down to the local store on my lunch break and at the pawn shop next door I see a Peugeot. I walk over and take a look, it's obviously a low to mid-range bike with downtubes but I don't know my Peugeots. It's in good shape no scratches just a some peeling on the decals, somebody obviously loved this thing it's priced at $215, so I say to the guy I'll give you $75. He shoots back $125 and 5 minutes and $100 later I'm loading bike in the back of my Prius. A little investigation reveals it's PH10LE, fits like a glove, and it's far lighter than my commuter. So am I a sucker or decent deal?

Sounds like a decent deal to me. How 'bout some photos?

Great bike for a hundred bucks? I don't think you're the sucker.

Remember the Prime Directive for perfect number of bikes : n + 1

Value depends on the condition of the bike, but the PH10LE is a decent HLE tubeset bike. Post some photos and the experts will weigh in.
