That $375 was a steal for the job you did on the the restore. It looks beyond new......

Best, Ben
The 531 decal moves from the seat tube to the top of the downtube c.1973; the angles look a touch steep to me, though, so maybe it's a transitional one from when they went from 72 degrees parallel to around 74 or so. The Nervex Pro lugs were standard on PX-10E EXCEPT for 1972, when Peugeot used the plain Nervex DuBois lugs that year. They resumed with Nervex Pro lugs by 73 or so, and those lasted and show up on at least some PX-10s through 1975 or so. The PX-10LE with its white headlugs and DuBois lugs came in c. 1974, I think ...

So when is someone with the right French language skills and the research capabilities going to look into what, exactly, happened with Nervex Pro lugs c.1972-73? Peugeot stops using them for one year on an iconic bike; Raleigh quits using them for one year in 1973 and chooses to use up their stockpile of Carlton Capella lugs; and it seems to me there were others that suddenly paused in their use of Nervex Pros ...
