1976 Peugeot PX-10 on CL

Ran across this 1976 Peugeot PX-10 on CL for $799.
Can you tell me if the price is fair for the condition it is in.
Thank you.

Thanks howsteepisit. I am new to vintage bike scene and have little to none experience in what something like this bike is worth. I sent the owner an email to look at it this weekend.
Thanks again.

The Peugeot PX10 is a great old bicycle and very collectible. The one shown is in great shape and, in my opinion, offered at a reasonable price. I would buy it myself, if I were in the market for a 10. But I am not. I let my PX10 go for a thousand dollars plus shipping, another $225.00. Mine was in great shape and had the more desirable fancy lug work...

Not knowing the Minneapolis market, I would agree with @wrk101 this seems a little high. In the Atlanta market, I would think that this bike would be in the 5-600 range as a max. Also agree that, with the season coming to a close, you might be able to negotiate a bit more as well..

Oh...and welcome to the Forums...

Seems a little high to me, but it's not crazy. I'd say it's more of a $600 bike.

This seems high to me - I usually see px-10s from the 70s selling for around $500-$600 on eBay. 400-500 on CL. I have passed them up at $300 as flips and don't have much interest in owning one as a rider.

Px-10s are not in the same category as some others...like Paramounts, Raleigh pros, Italians or some of the other frenchies. There are more of them and the parts are less desirable for starters.

Yeah right...

Between 1903 and 1983, Peugeots were ridden to victory ten times in the Tour de France, in addition to winning championships and breaking records. Some sources have indicated that Eugene Christophe, whose name graced vast numbers of toe clips, rode Peugeots during his heart-breaking Tour de France attempts in 1913 and 1919. In 1955 Peugeot co-sponsors a pro team with Dunlop. In 1963 Team Peugeot adopts the black and white checkerboard design. In 1964, Tom Simpson wins the Milan-San Remo and, in 1965, the World Road Championship. Eddy Merckx rode for the Peugeot team from 1965-67, winning the World Road Championships in 1967. The Arc-en-Ciel (rainbow) stripes of a World Champion appears on Peugeot downtubes shortly after Simpson's 1965 World Road Championship victory, and they remained there for many years. Peugeot sponsorship ends in 1989.

He's not saying they're not great bikes, it's just that they are not that uncommon and it's harder to get spare parts, hence they don't demand as high a price.

Race history was not a factor in my choice to buy my Peugeots.

I'm sure that race history is not a factor in anyone's choice to buy a Paramount.

..anyone cognizant in the race history has some doubts about whether guys like Merckx
and some of the other Peugeot team riders were riding on PX-10's anyway.

I would not have guessed that was a 1976 bike in the photos, but I don't know enough about them to say it's not.

So a buyer with a healthy budget can do very well on C/L. Its the cheaply priced stuff that goes fast.

...shhhhhh.

Look's like PX10 prices are back on the rise.

That makes the OP's ad look to be within reason if one really wants a PX10.

The flippers are the experts on what bikes should sell for, but that one is especially desirable to me. SLJ derailers, Maillard 700 hubs, an Ideale 90 saddle, last generation MAFACs with full hoods and "drilled" levers and the Stronglight 99 crankset make it worth more to me than the average PX10 I see for sale. I wouldn't feel too bad about paying more than they say I should for that one. All it needs is Retrofriction shifters.

Hey, Midtown,

I've been looking at that one, too (not to buy - just looking). I thought it was a bit high, but not necessarily unresonable. But it has been listed for almost a month at that price, and I doubt it will sell for that asking price. A few months ago, I bought a vintage bike in the Twin Cities that had been listed for a month. I offered the guy 25% less than his asking price, and he accepted. If the seller really wants to sell the PX10, he will likely come down. When you see the bike, make sure it fits you (at least sit on it in your riding position and get a good feel for the top tube length) and then make some sort of offer. You might be surprised - or you might be rebuffed, but at least you'll have an idea where the seller stands.

Good luck!
