For $1700.00, the buyer could have found a much better built fra me on eBay and then proceeded to find excellent or NOS parts to build it up - there's fun in that as well. When all is said and done, and don't get me w rong, I have always had a soft spot in my heart (and head) for most Peugeots, the buyer is left with, most likely, a marginally finished frame (let's hope the re are no gaps in the brazing) with some pretty cheap components.

Once it is ridden, the market value will probably decrease by 2/3...of course, the buyer may never intend to ride it (or to finish the build for th at matter), but many have spoken about that decision.

I was surprised the price went as high as it did (it seemed to go up when th e buyer stated he had retrieved the original box)........and no, I did not place a bid.
