You are right oddjob. I am heading out to check out the PX10 on one of my few days off. I hope it is as he described.

The issue is I want the PX for myself and chances are it will not be there in spring. This is high on my list of grail bikes so I may try to get him at his original price or negotiate upon seeing it.

No one is buying bikes now, i would offer him the original 250, cause he is not going to sell that bike now. I bought a Schwinn Town and Country trike with a yellow band kick back hub that was hardly ridden last week for 150, in March i will ask 300 for it. I bought a beautiful black mens Suburban upright 10 speed for 50 bucks in the spring I will easily get 150 for it. Px 10 only go for around 300 here anyway, some of the components were not very good. Best part of the bike is the frame.

I hear that dat1009! The only thing is picking up the Raleigh will essentially take up an entire day off and those are few and far between now. If it is still around in a while I will make the trip but if someone else jumps on it just let me know how it looks and rides! Also I really don't have room for two more right now until I gift off a few to family for Christmas.

If it is a PX10 and it is one of your grail bikes, $300 is more than fair. He probably just researched what a PX10 goes for and is still offering you a discount price.

hey if you don't end up picking it up, send the seller towards my way (I believe you and I just made a deal recently, and you may have my email). I always have extra space for a nice px10.

At $300 it is going for approx. half of it's value in MY market. We don't see prices cut in half during winter months on highly desirable bikes, maybe 10% - 20% at most. You don't post where you live so I have no idea what your markets like, but in places like Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and I imagine NYC $300 is a great deal.

So I went and picked up the PX10 yesterday afternoon. It is filthy and greasy but otherwise in very good condition. It will be one of my main winter projects. It fits great also. I believe it is a '73 and has the plain lugs, not the Nervex but it is nontheless a great looking bike. The only imperfection are some scratches on the top tube caused by the cable housinv clamps. Once I clean it up I will post some pictures. Thanks a lot for the advice everyone. Can anyone recommend their preferred method of fixing those scratches once I get to that point?

Welcome to the PX10 club!

If the scratches don't show bare metal, Scratch-X. If they do show bare metal or rust, clean with Barkeepers friend, then use some brush on automotive touch-up paint. Beware, there are many different tones of white paint. You can also just clearcoat with clear nailpolish.

'74's do have plain lugs but other years do as well. It could be anything.....

The Op's bike will have date codes in at leasts 3 spots:

1. End of handlebars under the tape
2. RD pully cage
3. Rims

Handlebar:

Great thanks a lot oddjob2! I am definitely going to do this within the next month. Great advice. I also have to locate someone closeby with a Stronglight BB tool. I cannot wait to ride this for the first time.

I will take a couple of pre restoration photos today then trailangel. I thought that '73 had plain lugs but I will get the serial number and hopefully figure it out that way with some help.

I just looked at some old pictures,, and I can't remember what year I bought my PX10.
Could have been 73 or 74. I have the plain lugs but the 531 decal is on the seat tube indicating a 73.

Ya, Some photo's would be appreciated! Welcome to the PX 10 club! There's a couple of BF threads on Peugeot PX 10's: http://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...geot-px10.html And, French bike thread : http://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...nch-bikes.html, to show your new acquisition after clean up. You're going to enjoy the bike for it's handling and comfort and will probably your goto bike!

I wonder if it may have been a late model year transition as the supply of fancy lugs ran dry.

Great info miamijim. I did not know that the dates were stamped into the RD and the bars. The bar tape is in perfect condition as is most of the bike (under the grim). Would you leave the original tape on or replace it with something modern like black Brooks? This is certainly at the top of my grail list so I do not mind investing a little extra into it.

I can't wait until she is a go to rider. By the early spring without a doubt I will be cruising around on that PX.

No, at least the '67 UO-8 was nothing close to a quality steel. You could bend it just looking at it. PX-10, yes, 531. The word was that Reynolds sold its pursuit gauge tubing to Peugeot in French standard diameter, but would not sell pursuit gauge to anyone else for any purpose at all except for pursuit track bikes. Since Peugeot therefor got thinner tubing than anyone else could get, PX-10s were indeed light (and not stiff). Anyone considering them should take that into consideration. (And they will not last as long in rust environments - thinner wall thicknesses.)

I picked up a 1980-81 Peugeot PX10 "Super Conpetition" for $120 via Craigslist this year. Sadly the rear wheel was badly bent. That and the Stronglight 99 crank threads where you pull the cranks were shot,... to the point that when they were pulled of, the threads came right out!! So they're toast!
Over some time I've slowly acquired Campy Nuovo components to replace the ones that were abused. No pics yet,...but its coming along.
Hope to take it out soon
when I get a few things taken care of on it and finish it up!

Nobody knows why but that's the prevailing thought. Some even have UO style fork crowns .

In regards to dating these, the only conclusive clue is the Reynolds decal, '73 and older have it on the seat tube, '74 and newer have it on the down tube.

...that's too bad about the Stronglight crank. Did you use the right sized puller ? Maybe you know it's a proprietary size ?

Looks great, congratulations. Are those clincher rims Weinmann Concave?

I have the stronglight crank tool, but it wouldn't pay for you to cross the GWB for $12 to borrow it. Maybe noglider or timmyt have one you can use.

Thanks a lot. I believe they are because they are definitely clincher concaves but I didn't check the make. I can't wait to get it on the road. Once I start the restoration in a few weeks I may be reaching out to you guys for some advice and assistance.

Yep,...
It was actually my friend who's been working on vintage bikes now, for,...man I'm not even sure how long,..10+ years? Yep,..he looked at the threads before they were pulled and said, "these suck, they're probably going to pull right out!"
And,.. they did!
So some dope abused the bike before I got it!
That and the steerer tube had a crack in it,.. so that's off to my friend's "friend" who builds bikes so that can have another steerer tube mated to itself. It will actually end upstronger in the end after its been sleeved and welded...(I'm a welder by trade but didn't have the proper jig to do the job myself).

Sooo,.... it's getting there!

That's great and similar to my Weinmann Concave wheelset, which are on my Motobecane Grand Touring. Bought a too tall Austro Daimler ADSL for $40. Sold the Reynolds 531 frame and fork for $90. Harvested all the other parts, including the wheelset.
