Peugeot PX10 a new life

Hi friends, I would like to take this opportunity to ask you kindly to please help me identify, if possible, the date of my newly acquired PX-10. The little guy has had a hard life but it now sits safely in my home. I bought the bike from a gentleman that was about to trash it. I spoted it on CL and drove an hour to get (two hour round trip) it.
:-) The bike was left outside and so it aquired a lot of oxidation. This doesn't matter to me, as this is a special bike, and I had to rescue it. I will list the parts I have identified with a few components left. Thanks again for the identfication. I truly and sincerely appreciate it.
Chrome fork tips, seat stays, and chain stays, Inoxidable decal high by seattube, remnants of the Reynolds 531 decal placing on the seat tube, and the reynolds triangle on each side of the forks, stronglight competition headset, head badge with rivets, simplex prestige back derailleur, dural forge mafac breaks (front/back), serial number 496034, nervax stamped shell with miniature Nervex serial number, and stronglight crank (I've heard a lot of talk about Stronglight 93, how can I determine is mine is one?)I'm hoping that I can upload some nice pictures, but If they do not upload, please email me directly and I will send them to you. My email address is spkr2070@hotmail.com. Thanks again to everyone for your time and feedback.

Well it sounds like it could be a 60's PX10 to me with those calipers.

Need pics though to say much more - You ought to open an account and post to Photobucket, then copy and paste the image tag (begins and ends with "[img...[/img]" , and it will display embedded full sized images here.

Riveted triangular headbadge would be mid to late 60s.
Picture will confirm the date and the rear DR should have a date stamp with the year on it.

nice find!

Tiny frame, I hope it will fit you.

Best guess at first glance: late '67 - '69.

Crank is SL 93, indeed (appeared in late '67 or '68, seemingly).

You can check and date many of your bike's components on VeloBase
http://velobase.com/BrandDirectory.aspx?Load=Components.
Very useful source of information!

And of course the corresponding Peugeot web pages.

this is with 99% certainty (for me) a 1963 PX10:

1964, given the serial number? I know -- Peugeot S/Ns are allegedly inconsistent ...

Very nice bike, anyway!

Thanks to everyone! May I please have some recommendations on how to clean it up, and take all of that oxidation off? Can it be done, without completely destroying the integrity of the bike? It is a small frame at 21" (53.34 cm). I'm 5'10" and I feel very comfortable riding a 54cm-58cm. Thanks again!

Alfredo

Completely disassemble the bike first. Wipe everything down with Nevr-Dull wadding to remove surface rust, grime, and any left over grease. Then soak everything in a disposable kiddie pool with either oxalic acid, or if you're squeamish about that strong of acid, white vinegar for 48 hours. The OA or vinegar will neutralize any rust that the Nevr-Dull didn't remove.
