I'm interested, but my Peugeot knowledge is slim. I know that with these bikes, the presence/absence of a couple key things can make the difference between a $100 beater, and a real prize. Bikes this tempting do not come up often in my city.

I solicit your sage advice and knowledge.

Its a good one.

Ad sucks, so do the pictures: " I have some new handlebar tape to go with it, but i thought someone might want to make it their own. It rides amazing."

Translation: "Bar tape is shot, but I am too lazy to even spend 5 minutes changing it out. Imagine what the hubs, bb, and hs look like inside" Ride is amazing = "amazing compared to what, total bone head comment. Ranks right up there with "so light, I can pick it up with one finger. I am surprised he didn't say that""

Pics are bad but this looks like the real deal. It has a 531 frameset and the bike did come with a stronglight crank, spidel levers etc. Hard to tell from the pics if it is all original. The saddle is not original as it would have come with an ideale 2002 saddle I believe. Someone will chime in with the exact model name but this looks to be a really nice bike.

It's my size. I love this generation Peugeot racing bike and I would be interested in if it were close to me. I'm not sure if I'd pay $390 for it though but that is, I think, a reasonable price if the bike is is good shape.

Alright, so initial reaction, this might be a legit PX-10. The name has meaning to me and it is truly a beautiful bike. Guess I'll study up a bit, 'cuz now I'm curious enough to go see it mayhaps. Is it worth the $390 he's asking?

I don' t think the right name is a PX-10 but a later model. Basically the same quality bike but a later generation Peugeot. I think it was called a super competition. Someone will chime in with the right name but yeah this is a desirable, good quality bike. I really like this particular model Peugeot racing bike.

If I'm wrong, Chombi or T-Mar will correct me, but it looks just like a 1983 from the catalog.

Weight is about 21 lbs. I think Peugeot PX-10s are pretty undervalued relative the other Reynolds 531 trophy bikes.

Those are nice bikes. I bought a similar one for a friend a while back for something like $250, and that was a great deal. I think the asking price is fair.

Yup, it's an 83, right before they went to the not so nice looking black paint and color band graphics in 84.......What was Peugeot thinking back then???... I think PX 10's would be more coveted and priced higher today if only Peugeot put in more time and money to build them with higher quality/workmanship and more fancy features. Good that they did ride so well, otherwise they would have been such a dud....
To be fair, I guess we cannot expect custom bike quality with the PX10s if they had to pump out jillions of bikes of all kinds every year for "the masses"....

I've seen and ridden this sellers bike. It is a 1983 PX10 as all components, frame decals, and frame tubing check out to Peugeot specs. Bike needs a good cleaning and has some scuffs, abrasions, chips etc. Would call it average condition but opinions differ greatly.
