    My First Pug, a CFX10 'Super Competition'

    A project picked up this week needing a good cleaning and some new bar tape, a Peugeot PX10 'Super Competition'. This was the personal ride of one of the owners of a lbs that flourished from the mid 70s through the late 80s. The owner bought the frame and fork and built it up the way he wanted, including Huret Jubile ders, Peugeot-branded Nervar cranks with Lyotard pedals, Mafac/Spidel brakeset, Atax/Philippe bars and stem, Simplex Retrofriction shifters, Campy NR headset, LePrade seatpost, Ideale 80 saddle, and sealed Normandie large-flange hubs laced to Mavic G40 rims. If I've misspelled any of the components, I'm easy to correct. I bought it off the employee he sold it to who 'didn't like the way it rode.' The RD is the first I've ever seen with a toothless pulley wheel.

    Great find. That should clean up very well.

    It looks like most of the hardware pre-dates the frame by a few years?

    Try to retain the Mafac/Spidel LS2 brakeset as it is a good quality component from the period early 80's.
    It's really the last good brakeset that Mafac made and the fact that it was pulled into the Spidel group speaks well for it's quaility. I'm a fan of the brakeset myself, and I have it on both my French bikes. I have all sorts of other supposedly higher level NOS brakesets, but I still can't find a reason to replace the Spidels with them as they perform so well and look so good!

    Nice find. I just bought a '79 (I think) because
    I so much liked the ride of the one I got last
    fall from Joe Englert. Truly "de gustibus non
    disputandum" or in your case

    I'm about midway in reassembly with mine, so
    no photos of the finished machine, but as
    received:
    Peugeot PXN 10 E 008.jpgPeugeot PXN 10 E 006.jpgPeugeot PXN 10 E 003.jpgPeugeot PXN 10 E 002.jpgPeugeot PXN 10 E 004.jpgPeugeot PXN 10 E 005.jpgPeugeot PXN 10 E 001.jpg

    My impression is as yours, that by this time
    they were ordered as frames and built up
    with buyer selected components, often
    assembled by the shop that sold them.
    (Any one know if this is true, partly true,
    or totally BS ?)

    If both of these perform as nicely as my first
    Peugeot PX 10 (2-4-11) 001.jpg
    we are the most fortunate of men. Like
    Roger said, that ought to clean up nicely.

    Respectfully,
    Mike Larmer

    Now, if anyone has a nice, 'modern' French stem, I'd be very interested as those old skull-puncher bolt heads have always made me very leery.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention that in my post.
    That's probably not the AVA "death stem",
    but it is similar in look and design. Usually
    in the better French bikes it ends up being
    a much thicker and more durable stem, but
    it still has the same overall configurations
    and ought to be replaced whenever you
    come up with something. (If you look
    at the last photo, you'll notice i'm still
    riding that first PX with one.

    23skidoo - That is one impressive first foray into Peugeots!!
    - a whole lotta really good stuff on it too.


    PS_ Does your AVA stem look like this?

    If so it's the death stem according to Sheldon Brown.
    I have one on my own PX10... (So far so good, though I'll refrain from doing any BMX stunts with it.)

    auchencrow, that's pretty much what it looks like, though I'm at work and the bike is in the garage at home so I can't confirm for certain.
