Rough Peugeot PX10 - what's it worth to you?

I'm already going to be giving one frame the oxalic-acid-and-repaint treatment in the next several weeks, so I figured I could do another frame if something attractive popped up on island. One has.

It's supposedly a PX-10, and I'm fairly sure it is based on the PX10 ID page:

PX10 ID

Here's the one available:







Seller has been bouncing his ad price back and forth, and is now $75. It needs to be overhauled.

What's it worth to ya?

Even in such rough shape, worth $75 all day long, as long as nothing is stuck.

I would have already bought it for that price.

Paid $110 for a 1974-1975 PX10N with the simple lugs (not the fancy, painted Nervex one in the bike pictured)that someone pulled from the dump. Had to trash the rear wheel, both derailers and use parts from both brakes to get one working front brake. It fixed gear now, and one of my favorite riders. Well worth to me what I paid for it.

Paid $175 for a less complete PX10 a year ago. Mine was relatively free of corrosion, however. I ended up getting a professional repaint with good results.

As long as there's no big nasty frame cracks or other bad defects it's definitely worth $75. If frame is decent you could probably flip it for a few hundred.

Thanks for all the insight, guys.

I picked it up this morning and I'm now 99% sure that it's a PX10. It's 100% complete and original from what I can tell. Skewers and all

And as it typical, I asked what else the seller had. He ended up being the same seller I spoke with a few months ago about a Columbus-steel Zunow frame, which I am now the owner of as well.

Pictures when I get home.

Looking forward to the pics.

Here she is:









And some more in here:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/673386...57659636057622

Has the Brooks saddle, Simplex components, Normandy hubs in good shape - wouldn't trust the spokes though.

Paint has chipped and minor pitting in some parts, nothing worse that I've seen recovered from.

What are we looking at for value? I've seen them in similar shape sitting unsold at $250 on the bay. I'm tempted to keep the frame and build into my next commuter, but I don't need another road bike and taking this complete bike apart isn't something I want to do.

Thanks and Happy Aloha Friday

IMHO Mafac "Racer" and "Competition" are the best center brakes ever made. Well worth the effort to restore.

very nice bike, I'm a PX-10 fan and would of bought it in a heart beat. 75.00 is a good price. Also, how many PX-10's pop up on the B.I.? Here is a picture of one for your restoration....

Thanks for the pic, @italianbiker.

Not many PX10's come up locally, so I'm considering holding on to it. Will make a post in the C&V section if I ended up restoring it

Nice bike. Most PX-10's I've seen from around that time had Reynolds 531 stickers on them. Looks like somebody stuck a bike store label right where the 531 sticker should be. Not too sure those Suntour RD levers are original. If it's a PX-10 it should weigh right around 21 lbs.

you'd be surprised how well that bike will clean up. Don't do a paint job on it yet. Start with a soft microfiber cloth or an old t-shirt and spray it down with WD-40.

I had a Gitane like that once, chain and sprocket completely rusted, but most was surface rust. After a few sprays and 50 miles all the surface rust cleaned up nicely.

It's light, but I don't have a scale handy.

Agree about the Reynolds stickers probably being covered on the seat tube. There is one visible on the left fork arm:



And there's a neat badge on the seatpost:



I'm going to look for a serial number and figure the year out, then decide what to do.
