Peugeot PSV10 appreciation society

Well, y'know, this site surely has more than its fair share of Peugeotphiles, eh?
Anyway, here's some pickies of a new-to-moi PSV10. L'annee 1983 je pense. Bought at a local sports store here in noozeeland for USD80 last week. Everything's original apart from the seat (although I'm not sure about the Modolo brakes). Rides beautifully. Been looking for something like this for three years. It's a long story involving an original late 70s PX10 dumped on the footpath discovered by the bus shelters over the road from the Gare de Lyon on Rue de Bercy in August '05, and a pang of Antipodean conscience that saw me WALK PAST IT in the full knowledge it'd be in a skip - or the Seine- by nightfall. Sigh...
Now where was I? Oh yeah, the PSV10. The world is now back to rights. And as a bonus I found a bog-standard mixte for USD15 the week before. Now it's the house hotrod (see pic).
Vive la France mes Amis! Jeff.

Nice find!! It may be a newer than '83. How about some serial numbers?

Very nice. I have a similar, earlier model in black in size 56. The problem is, if we keep praising this model, the next time we go to buy one on ebay we may end up paying more.

Let us all offer praise to the PSV10. I am going to sell mine after the first of the year.

I just got my psv10 ('82) last week and was able to take it on a 20 mile ride. Great bike, very fast and light. It is the perfect companion for my '80 pkn10.

Miami Jim - took your advice and checked the serial number on the stem - 9/85. By the time to part was finally used it was probably 1986. Add another 2 or 3 months (sea freight France - NZ) and it woulod have been new to someone in mid-86.

Luis - I saw your psv on your thread. Snap! Yeah, it's a nice ride. Mine's a bit long in the stem but the bike's pretty much original and I kinda hate the idea of swapping the ATAX for a Cinelli...

Wow, the PSV10 must be the most ubiquitous model on here. How many threads are there just on page 1?

I think we discussed the easiest bikes to find in the US once...after Schwinn, I think Peugeot got the nod.

Wish i could ride mine but it's snowing and the windchill is 18F. It feels like it's one pound lighter than my LeMond 853.
