Is this a PX10E?

Hi, I'd really appreciate it if someone could identify this bike for me. I haven't yet made sense of the info out there regarding 531 Peugeots.

Reynolds 531 sticker on frame. Campagnolo hubs to Nisi non-hooked clinchers. Simplex dropouts, Simplex derailleurs. Stronglight crank. The saddle and post are not original. Please see pics for more details.

The saddle is a crime. The rest of the bike looks like it will clean up well. Nice bike.

Ha yes it's mine! Thanks for the confirmation. Do you know if this is a straight PX10 or PX10E?

Yeah the saddle is a little out of place. Unfortunate isn't it. Thanks.

Where do you live, that has a big effect on value.

Yep, it's real. We've had a few real PX-10s show up here lately, almost as many as the UO-8s and others that people think are PX-10s.

Are you sure? I see shiny steel rims with serrations in the brake track.

That and the Schrader valves make me wonder as well.

..........as already stated, it's a little rough. If the rims are, indeed, alloy, and relatively true and well tensioned,
I'd guess maybe $250-300 in its present state, but i cannot really tell from your photos what the paint looks like.

Some of the components that will probably need replacing down the line if a new owner wants to ride it very much
have a tendency to make them worth a little less to me personally. It's in a popular size range, and has Nervex Pro
lugs, both of which tend to boost the value.

It's basically a good starting point for a complete overhaul and cleaning leading to a fun, rideable bike.

Yes they do have serrations on the brake surface but they are aluminum, I double checked with a magnet.

Thanks that's kind of what I figured.

Cutout Nervex on the BB...sweet. I almost bought one in '73...liked the Motobecane Grand Jubillee better for uniqueness (no one had one) & deraileurs & paint but the PX-10 was always a winner frame wise. As I recall those stems were not noted for there strength.
