I need help with the model and year. I’ve searched through the Peugeot catalogs and come up empty. The owner doesn’t have any idea. It has chrome so I know it’s not a cheap one.

bike boom bikes in great shape (ignored but well stored) are not uncommon - $200 +/-
that is the top-line sport/touring bike - the racier U10 has a wider market
A buddy paid $125 for perfect early 80s Miyata-built Univega.

it's still wearing all the kind of stuff the rest of us would have stripped off with heavy riding.

I’m going back and forth. I love the color but the last Peugeot i worked on, an ‘85 P-something was a chore to find tools and parts for. I promised myself I’d never work on another Peugeot. But...

personally, I would prefer the older bike - however, late-80s should get you to all ISO, (also SunTour) and the older bike will be French, the 85 worse - a mix of French and ISO.
The mid-80s are not at all uncommon - show up at every Frankenbike here, but I like the older paint schemes better.

there's also something special in the ride of older French bikes - they put the low-trail in the fork offset, making it springy, and lighter frame tubing than e.g. Raleigh would use.
That's also a pretty cool Stronglight crank

this is a higher-grade bike, Tad's 21-lb '72 Follis, and I think he sold it, but the ride was so amazing he had to let everyone ride it

Head emblem resembles that of Follis.

Colour scheme is consistent with a stock Follis one.

Catalogue sheet for the Follis model 672 of 1972 -

That Follis is Art Link's first grown-up bike, which Tad picked up on a trip to Austin.
Art ran the premier classic steel bike shop in Austin for decades.
He was the source of Lou's Charrel, several other bikes and parts between them and Ed as well, my GB Map of England bars, and Art still has a big collection in Austin.
None of Art's bikes fit me.
