Peugeot PA, PR or PX? etc... 1970

Hi, finally I found a new vintage bike in my size and for a reasonable price (I think). I can't really figure out the model, though I have been doing hours of research! Can someone help? I think most is original since I bought the bike from the first owner but the pedals or at least the thing that holds you foot on the pedal is a Christophe.
I want to get new tires for it since the spokes are rusty but anyone have suggestions on what to get?? And how do I best clean it. Take it apart bit for bit or just go over it with a rug?
Here's some details:
Peugeot serial nr: 7031670
Reynolds 531
Mavic tires
Mafac "RACER" breaks
Simples rear derailleur "F"
Simplex front derailleur "super competition"
Normandy P 02 77 (rear), P 51 76 (front)
Cranks 170 14x125
Steering: Guidons Philippe ATAX D352
Stronglight cranc set nr 52
pedals has the numbers 12 76 made in France.

Pic assist...

I can't help with what it is exactly, but the picture might help others. Nice bike, though. I love my own Peugeot.

The Stronglight TS gave it away for me. Looks like a 1977 PR10, and it looks to be quite original. Here is the catalog page (the only thing that doesn't really match up is the color):

You can find the rest of this catalog (and many others) at bikeboompeugeot.com

Edit: Fantastic bikes. I've had both a PR10 and a PRN10 from around this time period and loved them both.

Sweet bike. Yes this is a PR 10, the reynolds sticker (3 main tubes reynolds is a give away). I can't tell, does your bike have tubulars? If so, sure they'll fit. But why run a 23 mm tubular? This bike has lot and lots of room for a fatter tire (that's one of the great features of many old school racing bikes). I'd get a 28c. I just build up a PR 10 from a frameset:

Nice build!
Another question, what kind of tool do I need to remove the cassette on my PR 10????
Style and brand of cog system, looks as it's Maillard (about 30 mm, 24 splines). Is that correct and where do I get such a tool??? Seems hard to get by.

First, pretty sure that's going to be a freewheel and not a cassette.

Second - again, pictures are worth a thousand words and are very easy to upload here into your posts, it only takes a second and you can insert them on your very first post if you want (you just can't hot-link offsite until I think 10 posts?)

For Freewheel, depends on which country you're in. Proper Maillard removers by VAR are on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004YJ3D8E/

There are other options available. I have a trusty old VAR remover as pictured and it works great.

There's someone in eastern Europe I always see selling various VAR and other freewheel removers on eBay - Croatia, I think? - up to 50% cheaper than Amazon.

Nice bike!
Real cyclists use toe clips.
With great bikes comes great responsibility.

Great bike! (Former PKN-10/PR-10 successor owner here.) Tire clearance is pretty generous for a bike of this performance level -- I ran REAL 700Cx28 tires (Specialized Armadillos) on mine, something I can't do on my Bianchi of the same vintage.
