Peugeot - PX 10?... Year?... Value?

I got this bike. I know it isn't looking very nice, but was part of a trade.
I am interested in the model, year and what components are not original.
Rear derailleur is Simplex, front is Suntour (wrong), Simplex levers.
Mafac Racer brakes, I think is Reynold 531 frame and fork (decals almost gone).
Both wheels probably wrong.

thank you for your help

PX10. Decals and plain lugs would indicate around 1972 or maybe 1973 I think.

Yes, defintely a PX 10 with the chrome socks front and back......
A very nice classic Peugeot, but currently depressed in value.....
As recently discussed in this sub forum, they are currently going for dirt cheap prices, compared to just a few years ago.
Cleaned up/touched up to good condition, maybe just 400 bucks, max for this particular example these days (perfect, mint, original ones maybe for $600 max...... and I suspect, still dropping as a lot of PX10s sems to have popped out of the woodwork for sale these past couple of years. Not sure if there's an actual glut of them already, but it sure looks like it.....

Rims don't match, brake levers are not original.

Should be before 1973, because the Inoxydable decal is up under the seat?
Nervex Professional lugs.
Ava stem.
Stronglight crank set.
Simples seat post

What should I do with it? Clean, change cables, a set of wheels and ride?

If its your size its certainly worthy of some TLC. Considering the level of dirt, I'd break it down completely, clean everything, new grease, new chain, cables, tires, bar tape, remove the suicide levers or get better brake levers, new brake pads, and probably a dozen other things I'm too lazy to list.

This bike needs more than just a tune-up. It should be taken down to the frame and completely rebuilt. This isn't a terrible undertaking but given how long it's been sitting it desperately needs this type of service before being ridden.

Awesome PX-10 by the way!

Looks like it would clean up reasonably well. Correct parts.....such as levers and hoods, Simplex seatpost can/do command lofty prices. I have one that needed a set of wheels and was able to find a set dirt cheap at a swap. Find someone who is trying to "unload those obsolete French bits". Build it........and they will come..............

the machine's non-original brake levers are CLB.

pedals appear asian which means pedal threads may have been tapped out to 9/16"/BSC/ISO.

original pedals would have been Lyotard model 45CA, 14mm metric thread.

Pedals are Chair Japan 64
What type of rims and hubs should I look for?
27" x 1 1/4?
Maybe I can find another Peugeot which has the same rims?!
The seat was a Brooks, but it is broken. I have a Wrights seat in excellent condition coming from a 1974 Raleigh. Should I use this one?

Nice gift! I am in line with others have said about clean up.
PX10's came with sew up or tubular tires. Don't know if you want to go in that direction. I don't remember which hubs were on there, either Campagnolo High Flange Record or those French things.......too lazy to look them up. Do a search for
Brooks Pro was original. You may be able to find one for ~$100 give or take $20. What ever fits your bottom works. What is broken on the Brooks? If it is leather, contact rhm on this forum. He can sell you a replacement or put new leather on the frame.

Yeah, it was almost a gift. I sold a Trek 310 Elance for 200$ + Peugeot.

I have a set of wheels tubular with ?? rims, Campanolo Record hubs, Normandy cassette, quick release (got them for free)
and a set of wheels tubular with AVA rims, Suntour hubs, no cassette, quick release (free too).
Should I use the Campanolo, right? Any idea for cheap, but good tubular tires?

Here are the pictures with the seat:

you asked about wheels -

original hubs would have been Normandy Luxe Comepetition, second generation large flange 36 hole with gold and black foil labels. skewers would have been Simplex. rims would have been tubular, makers varied. most common was Mavic Montlery. spokes would have been Robergel Trois Etoiles light gauge butted. ex-works tyres were Hutchinson tubs.

Chair of Japan also made hubs. pedals likely a bit earlier than bicycle. if pedal threads have not been tapped out to 9/16" you will need to enlist the services of a body builder to turn the pedal spanner to remove the Chair pedals.

Not always, I've had a couple of PX10's with 9/16-20 threading.

A version of the PX10, UX10, was available with 27" clinchers.

I also have a PX-10 with 9/16"' pedal threading. Internet says the decals are from 1974-76

To the original poster, many people (like me) think the PX-10 is the best riding racing frame ever made. If you put the work into restoring this bike as your own rider I don't think you will be disappointed.

I got a Motobecane, pedals are Lyotard Bte SGDG 136.
What do you think about them?
I will keep them anyway.
