Even after fixing up this Peugeot I have a rough idea of the year but no clue as to the model. There's a sticker that says '103' tubing but that's it. The front hub has an 85 engraved so I assume that's the year. The serial number is Y503 33289.
Yeah, it’s a P6. Initially I thought it was a P8 but they didn’t make any in black.
This is my first Peugeot project. What is bizarre is this is the first time I’ve received any flak over pricing. $300 for a classic road bike isn’t too much, imho. No one complained when I took a $20 Varsity, cleaned it up and sold it for $200. I had such a high response rate that I probably could have gotten $250-300. Haters gonna hate.
It's interesting that Peugeot was the last French maker to turn Japanese (on components and threading), but by the 80s, had to give in.
$300 is too much for that bike.
My friend has wanted that much (and more) for his '79 Raleigh Super Course, finally decided not to sell, but the excellent examples I showed him sold for $175 to $250. He still has the thing stored at my house...
