Well, there's a whole lot to go by: motobecane, racer, your uncle. Any pics (of the bike, not your uncle)?

I would say "PX10", but since it is not a Peugeot, well, then, it must be a Team Champion.

No, I think you're wrong. I bet it's a Motobecane PX-10. And from the OP's description, probably worth upwards of $1500.
