The hubs are original, as this page shows it having Maillard 700 "Peugeot" Trophy. The non-tubular rims are most likely original, though the specs show tubular, as many shops substituted clinchers for them. Also, that RD may be a SX-410 per specs, not SX-610 as you noted(?).

It's a genuine PX10LE model, with a few non-original replacement parts: the crankset and pedals, shifters, front derailleur, and saddle. The rest appears original. Yes, non-originality affects the value, but it's basically market-based. In my area (North Florida) for a local sale, it might bring $325, since it needs a full tuneup, tires and tubes, etc. Where you are, maybe $425-450, since it's an average-sized frame and could suit more buyers.

Thanks for all the terrific information in this post!

For the year 1977 there is a possibility it may have come with the Stronglight 105 model chainset. 1977 was the year in which the model 93 ended and the model 105 succeeded it.
