Peugeot road bike from the mid 1970s

Hey guys, what is a reasonable range of value for a Peugeot from the mid 1970s?
The bike is red, ridable, with the original components, and no significant damage.
I could not attach a picture and I am not sure how to find the exact model number.

Thanks much!

It's a heavily modified and poorly set up Peugeot UE8. It's also very tall, so I hope you're well over six feet. It's hard to provide a value without a location. Photo assist.

Thanks much for quick reply T-Mar. You have checked this faster than I have posted. I am located in Phoenix Arizona.
It is tall frame indeed. :-)
Regards,
Octavian

Are you buying or selling? If buying and originality is important the rear derailleur is definitely not original!

I am considering selling it, mainly because the frame is too big for me.

There is a valuation forum specifically for this kind of question - probably best to ask there…

Ask $100 and move the price down if it doesn't move. I bought a 25 inch UO 9 which is a little nicer bike than this mainly for the crank (a stronglight 99) and a few of the parts for $50. I still have the frame sitting around.
