    too bad you can't either rent that puller from someone here or find one at your lbs/co-op.

    paying $50 for a tool you will use once every five years is a bit crazy.

    I'll see if I still have a puller for vintage TA cranks. Since I no longer own a TA crankset, I don't mind lending out the TA puller, assuming I still have it.

    From the 1XXXXXXX serial number and the decals, I think you have a 1971, definitely a PX-10. Great bike! My humble UO-8 is a 1970, and you can see the family resemblance in the decals.

    ... Steep frame angles were also contemporary with realxed frame angle. There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to when or why a particular geometry was used.
    Two different models: PX-10 versus PX-10E or PX10-LE. (I worked at a Peugeot-Nishiki dealership 1972-74.)

    I'll respectfully disagree. The 'E' suffix' stands for differentor higher specification and 'L' is luxurious or luxury

    Peugeot describes bikes with 'E' suffix ans being different/higherspecification and 'LE' models as high luxury. From what I've been able to determine different than doesn't mean different geometry it simply means different. There are several older catalogs which show bikes with 'E' suffixs' which have shallow geometry.

    Big Chainring - good call on the stem and bars being Schwinn parts. A bit of internet research shows that you are correct. Most likely they were transplants from another bike the original owner had in the 70's. I tend to prefer my vintage bikes be as stock as possible so I'm not sure what to do with this one. It was inexpensive enough to make the purchase a no brainer, but would probably cost a bundle to source and fit out with all of the original components. The bike is a bit of a hodge-podge as it sits currently, even though the components are all fine things in and of themselves. I already have a touring bike (1984 Specialized Expedition) as well as a nice French bike (1972 Gitane Super Corsa). Maybe I should just ride it as-is, and enjoy it for the "mutt" it is...

    Thanks for the loan offer. A local LBS mechanic had the correct tool at home and brought it in to remove my cranks. So we're over that hurdle now. I've also found a NOS Simplex RD and it looks like a French stem to replace the "Death Stem" :-)
