$200 for Peugeot with significant updates?

Looking into a Peugeot that has had the following new hardware installed: pedals, derailleur, crank, brake pads, cables, housing, chain, freewheel, cable levers, and handlebar tape. Not sure what specific model it is, but appears to be mid-80s, possibly Carbolite. Seller is asking $200. Does that seem like a fair price?

I canít post pictures unfortunately since this is my first post...

Good Morning and welcome to the forums. Is this just for getting around and recreational riding or are you looking for something to log some serious miles on?

Just recreational riding and running the odd errand on the weekend. Thanks for posting the pictures! Now that those are up, any idea what model Peugeot this might be?

@himespau I havenít tried it yet, hoping to do that today. Itís 54cm and Iím 5í10Ē so Iím worried it might be a tad on the smaller side, but I wonít know for sure until I see it in person.

Not a bad bike for what you want to use it for but that bike is worth around $100-$125. The seller is trying to recoup his/her costs for the new parts but that's a losing game (from the seller's point of view). I'd pass at this price.

Iím also looking at a 70s blue UO-8 which ďhas been completely reconditioned with all new consumables, the bottom bracket and wheel bearings have been overhauled. Nice all OEM equipment, nice French ďknurledĒ rims.Ē

That one is going for $289 which based on what Iíve seen around here is also way more than itís worth, I just donít know what is fair for a totally reconditioned Peugeot in this area (Iím in Chicago btw). FWIW the blue UO-8 does seem in better shape than the burgundy one above.

I'd never pay that for bike with stem shifters, but I'm strongly biased against them.

More objectively, if you don't mind them it's a bit overpriced but would be a solid bike for the intended purpose.

That's seriously overpriced even in Chicago.

The bike is too small anyway. Your height, you need a 23" at least.

"23" at least"? Like 25"?

I'll guess most guys 5'10" ride between 55 and 57cm c&v frames, which are well under 23".
