Starting in 1974 the catalog shows all U.S. import models with the smaller seat tube decal and the heavier down tube logo. Your bike matches the 1970-72 catalog.
Thanks.
A couple photos from the local Bastille Day ride.
Peugeot PX10 - Motobecane Mirage - Peugeot - and a Dunelt.



The Gitane owner survived but did not attend the ride. Viva la France.
