Yes the px10 is the only model that came with those components and it was VERY spendy to upgrade to them from a lower model so props to you

Nice! The drilled chainrings look particularly well next to the checkerboarding.

I thought the Peugeot 'Competition' model was their PKN-10 and was just one notch below the PX-10 in their lineup with 531 main tubes vs. fully 531.

That's a crazy find for $10. I'll outbid Cache and offer $350 if you're in the WI area

Yep. This is a PK. Wheelset and shifters have been changed from stock. Crank was stock for a couple of years late seventies/early eighties.

In the 70's it was Sella Italia. I am not completely satisfied it is the same company as Selle Italia. Selle Italia seems to be the saddle maker that is in business today.


On the bike, not a PX but pretty decent, and for $10 a purchase of the decade.

I believe that "sella" is singular (for "saddle") while "selle" is plural (meaning "saddles"). I don't know if there were two different manufacturers of them or if there was one firm that used two different marks. As regards the bike, Peugeot made these "Competition" and "Super Competition" frames after the phase out of the PX-10 series in the late 70's. Some were made with 531SL and some with butted 531 full frame (3 main tubes, rear stays, forks) and some with 531 butted main tubes only). Unlike the PX10's, these had braze-on cable stays. They were all very good bikes, and any of them would be a steal for $12!
