Peugeot

Bought this vintage Peugeot today at a garage sale. Wondering if I could get some help with what year and how much this goes for? Also is it worth tuning up





before I sell or let the new owner do that... thanks in advance!

Based on the features, head badge, and color, I would guess it is a 1980-81 U010 Course. Seems to be in decent shape. IMO, it is well worth fixing up.

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.

Do you have wheels laying around to complete the project? Not worth the price of buying new wheels, tires, tubes, and freewheel. So if you don't have wheels, I'd snag the Superbe brakes (calipers and levers), crankset (maybe, I'd need to see the other side), pedals, and donate the rest. If you want to mess around with the parts, you could also grab the stem, headset, and bottom bracket. At that point, there is not much left to donate.

In its current state, it has little to no value. But the parts do have some value, I would have bought it at a typical garage sale price.

You could certainly part it out. Personally, if the frame fit me I would look for a cheap donor bike with 27" alloy wheels. Shouldn't be too hard to find. I often see them from $20-$50. From what I can tell, that's all it really needs, other than small general stuff like cables. For very little money, you'd have a nice bike.

The serial number indicates that it was manufactured in April 1980 and is therefore a 1980 model. The stamped dropouts, in conjunction with chromed fork ends suggest a UO9 or UO10, while the colour is indicative of the latter. It has had several components replaced, including a least the brakeset, pedals, saddle, and bar wrap.

My decision on the bicycle's future would be highly dependent on the mechanical condition but rather than investing I'd probably part it out. There's decent money in the brakeset but it's unfortunate that the hoods are missing. There should also be some interest in the aluminum Simplex shift levers by owners who want to replace their Delrin units with something having a much more positive feel. The pedals look decent too but given the missing dust cap the condition may be poor. It's hard to comment on the derailleurs and crankset, without a photo of the drivetrain.

Also, the U09 had stem shifters.
