Peugeot PY 10 (first repaint) Before and After-- and Thank you to CV community

This is the story of my first repaint and an extended thank you note, of sorts, to the CV bikeforms community for help along the way.

About two years ago I happened upon a 79-80 Peugeot PY10 frameset that I bought from the original owner who purchased it from the warehouse when he worked for Cycles Peugeot in California back then. He built it up, rode it, and eventually stripped and then powder coated it and rode it some more. Thanks here go specifically to Miamijim for helping to confirm that the bike is legit PY10.

So when I bought it, it was pretty badly chipped, etcÖ as you can see here from the original pic.




About a year and a half ago I posted the thread below asking for advice (whether to ride it as is; strip and PC; or strip and paint) and while the ride-it-now option seemed most popular option, I was feeling ambitious and decided to slowly plan a full repaint as I tried to source the original parts for it.

https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...ld-you-do.html


It took me a while (specs are for pretty much Spidel branded everything, which is tough to come by in general, but even tougher at a reasonable price), but I finally managed to track down everything I needed, so I was ready to start planning to find the right painter. I wanted to go back to the original color (the Peugeot Blue the owner confirmed it had been when he got it), and then I got lucky. Huge thanks to Custermustache here and his thread about his own stroke of fortune finding an original PY10 in the Dallas metro area, right around the same time there was a thread on here about paint shop recommendations. A few emails later and some planning and Custer agreed to take his bike by Southwestern frameshop and David (the owner) would do a color match, strip, and repaint. Canít recommend him/them enough if you are thinking about a repaint.

And now, itís back. Looks a lot different than it does in the before pics, and I am so glad I went with paint.




I know people talk about how PC takes away from the lug details and now I can see first hand the difference. I am psyched to get this built and get it out on the road so that any and all the inevitable chips that will come to the paint in the future will be from me and part of my story with owning the bike. More pics to come once I get it rebuilt, but wanted to share this "before and after" now and say thanks to all the generous CV folks out there who share knowledge, time, and experience.

That is a beautiful bike. A high end pug is a bike that I'd like to pick up one day.

Thanks. Yeah, it was a little luck that led me to it. The seller was local, posting some high end bits, piece by piece, clearly parting out a bike but didn't seem like a flipper or just parting out to make a buck. I wasn't interested in the parts, but at the time I was looking for a nicer frame set to buy, and so I wrote and asked if there was a frame everything was coming off of and, if so, was he selling it. He wrote back saying yes and yes. I learned my lesson that it never hurts to send an email with a question. Never know where it might lead.

From your pics, I don't see much lost detail on the lug work. Did you get a closeup of the seat stay caps?

The color is great, very like the PKN10 I cleaned up for my brother in law.

I agree. I'm not a PC fan at all, but that turned out great.

Sorry! My post was confusing. It WAS powder coated when I bought it because the original owner redid it after riding it for several years, I had it stripped and redone with wet paint, not powder coat. What I had meant to say is that I can now see so much more detail on the lug work, than before when it was powder coated. Sorry I wasn't clearer.

Looks great. Congrats on going for the wet paint. That's really good finish work. What kind of paint did he use?

EDIT: ah, checked the website. Automotive paint. Smart choice.

You were clear enough, btw. I understood what you meant the first time..

Well that makes sense to me, PC always looks like someone dipped the frame in plastic to me. Which is cool is if you like that look, of course. But that frame looks like how I could've seen it coming out of the factory all those years ago.

Looks awesome - I still haven't heard from David about my frame pump, I'll reach out to him again.

Happy to help.
