If it were in my area, I would already be here, telling my fellow forum members how lucky I got. That is a pretty nice old road bicycle, pretty darn nice. I have owned and restored two PX10s (top of the line racers) and would love to get a bike like a PX60 (top of the line touring bike). However...

If the chrome is damaged (rust pitted), then the price is way too high. If the component group is not original, then the price is too high. Any frame damage, other than cosmetic issues, would suggest that the price is too high. But the bike does look to be a Garage Queen, that has been looked after incredibly well or recently experienced some form of restoration.

I just googled Peugeot PX-60 and found tons of info on it including several threads here on this forum. Beautiful bike.

The bike is beautiful and overpriced. You can buy a PX 10 or a later PXN 10 for substantially less, slap a triple on it, and have a lot of dough left over for beer money. If you want a sports touring bike (which this is), there are plenty of Reynolds 531 frames out there for less money. Heck at this price go buy a top end British bike and you won't have to deal with the oddities of French bikes.

Btw, I'm a huge fan of French bikes in general and I really like Peugeots.

^^^^Agreed, very overpriced and you can find a tourer for much less...there are lots out there that will fit the bill.
Good Luck, Ben

For those who see less value, ask yourselves, how many PX60s come up, especially in this condition? I sold two PX10s for over $1000.00 each. A PX60 is worth more, in my book. In closing, if anyone can show me a PX60 in great shape for less than the one the OP has shown, I would be more than interested in seeing it and what it is valued at.

If that's not a Technomic stem I would examine the steerer before making an offer.

Damn, I look for these in my size pretty regularly and have yet to find more than one or two (which weren't in my size).

bikemig I see your point, but I don't believe the geometry on the PX60 and PX10 are very similar. Maybe on the 72 PX10 which was more relaxed?

The price is at the very high end of what I would pay for this bike, but I'd probably do it if they couldn't be talked down, which I'm sure they can be. I feel like $600 or so is more reasonable. I'd prefer the silver one, but love this color as well.

Tire volume matters and I'll bet this bike with the Mafac competition brakes can't take a much fatter tire than one of the PX series bikes. This is a rich price for a sports touring bike. French bikes typically are less expensive than high end British or Italian bikes with a few exceptions (like a PY Peugeot).

I really like Peugeots and French bikes in general. I have a Mercier 300, a Peugeot PXN 10, and a Motobecane Grand Record.

I agree with you that this should go near the top of its valuation range given the condition and it is a rare bike so maybe $600 is an OK price. That is high for a Reynolds 531 French bike. If a buyer wants to pay more than $600, that's fine if you love it but I'd rather have a high end British bike at that price.

Thank you to all who chimed in with opinions concerning this bike. I traveled two hours away to where it was located and bought it for a price I can happily live with. I have a Soma Pescadero for “serious” touring so I never had intentions of using this Peugeot in the same manner. I simply love vintage bikes and this one will be ridden just like all my others (14?)
It rides and shifts as smoothly as I could ask for and the condition of the paint upon close inspection was quite similar to what was shown in the photos.
The seller informed me that he bought it from a friend who’s father was the original owner. This gentleman was a Frenchman who purchased the bike in France prior to moving to the US.
This man apparently was also a machinist by trade and did the “Swiss cheesing” to the chain ring gears in his shop.
The only change I’m going to make to it is to swap the Brooks for a nice condition Perjohn I have laying around. I have another vintage bike that would look great with that Brooks.
This Peugeot should look right at home next to my Follis !

Cheers !

Tomm

Glad it worked out for you! It truly is a beautiful bike. I hope you post some photos after you get it cleaned and tuned up. I especially like the gold-tone components. I noticed on some Peugeot catalog photos that they had gold-tone downtube shifters and even a RD in gold.
Very pretty and it plays well against the color of the frame.

BTW, I suggest if you are going to add fenders that you go with black ones. I saw a thread where the owner put white fenders on the bike and it just didn't "work" in my opinion. Black ones would look really nice, IMO.

Here’s a few pics after a bit of detailing. Not much difference really as the seller kept it in fine shape.







Nice touch with the labeling in French

No, no...... the previous owner just completed that task and did a fine job. I just did a little cleaning up.

I’ve had repeated back and neck injuries so riding with a “proper” stem height is not an option for me.

I understand but, at the very least, get a longer stem. I am not talking about the reach. I speak of the part that goes into the fork steering tube.

A stem, mounted too high (insufficient insertion) can and, sooner or later, will damage the steering tube of the fork. The steering tube will stretch, making it hard to remove/install head set nuts. I have also run across several split steering stems.

I share this information, based on experience, training and, of course, opinion, as a safety warning.
