I was repping for Peugeot at the time they pulled out of the U.S. market, late 1990. Procycle of Canada, which had been producing some Peugeot models for sale here continued to produce and sell the bikes under license and Cycles Peugeot, a division of Peugeot conglomerate, was later sold to BH of Spain. I've since left the industry and don't know the details of any such machinations in this century.

Here are some oldies that I have already posted elsewhere but helped prompt the generation of this thread. Nothing fancy; there don't seem to be many exotics at our place, or else they get grabbed before us outsiders get to see 'em.

Clubman's gone, I think, and the Batavus looks like a 23". No prices on either when last I looked. I'll check next visit.

I rolled into the co-op that I volunteer and of course buy things at yesterday, and as you are about to go inside, just outside by the fence is the "incoming donations" section. It's mostly cheap and/or worn out bikes, but you get a few semi-gems in there. Well well well, what do we have here? 1) A tall bike 2) An obvious repaint that looked alright, but just a weird color 3) A peculiar crankset... 4) Upon closer inspection/it jumps out at you, Nervex Professional lugs!

I go to the components: Stronglight cranks (model 93 or 93 SC or just Super Competition depending on what you like to call them), Simplex dropouts (rear) and shifters...and seat post. The two guys inside think it may be a Motobecane or a Gitane TdF or whatever--we all agree it's gotta be French. It has Normandie high-flange hubs and tubular tires on Mavic rims. The stem, bars, brake levers and calipers, and FD are all changed out, much for Shimano 620x pieces. I rub off dirt on the bottom of the bottom bracket and take pictures of the serial number. Seven digits.

After I got home, I spent a few hours researching everything, and I am extremely confident give the lugs, lightness, dropouts, original components, frame geometry, BB serial number plate riveted to the BB, and the serial number in general, that we are looking at a 1971 Peugeot PX 10 E, which would have been all white with black painted head tube lugs. Chrome 'socks' on the fork and stays. What a find! Another example of the crazy stuff we get donated.

The frame didn't look like it had any dents, it can be repainted, and the crankset looked to be in great shape, just grubby. Needless to say, as a bike that is in my size, I am very interested in it! We will see what the plan is.

It even has good dust caps on that crank! Probably worth more than the average co-op bike all by themselves. Don

I would imagine!

Well, I went to the co-op today to work on some bikes for the shop (in a second, separate location nearby) and they were closed. Bummer! So I went to the main retail location to see if the formerly-white Peugeot was there. I was assuming it would have been wheeled over to the second location, but there it was in the "as is" section at the main location! I paid less than a pair of dust caps' worth and the bike is in my living room, safe and sound. The rims are toast (cracks), the spokes are toast, the tubulars are toast, but one or both of the hubs should be ok. Cranks are 170mm in length. BB is smooth but super gummy/hard to turn. The bike was cared for at some point, but then seemed like it just rotted away in a garage or something. There is no more saddle (which was in bad shape), but I have the seat post, which I am glad for.

The plan is to get it rideable, see how I like it, and go from there. I think I should enjoy it, which means one of my bikes goes, and this stays and gets restored. I have several component plans for it that I am weighing. In the mean time, measurements and weights (it is pretty light!), and a selling of a ton of other bike stuff. Move the metal!

I finally own a PX10! <---it dawns on me, that significance, as I've secretly wanted one for a while, but just for a good deal.

The Detroit coop prices their ready-to-ride stock, often with rough paint, as if it were NOS. A Schwinn Suburban for $225, a 1984ish Trek 500 for $425 are recent examples.

Yes @jiangshi, even more than I get!

That drives me crazy. My wife used to work at a Habitat for Humanity store and she would argue with the manager all the time about prices. They did not make a penny off stuff that sat on the floor a long time and it took up valuable space. He would not budge most of the time.

Went by this evening. Clubman definitely gone, and now the Batavus is gone after having been there for a couple of months. Sorry, man. The Flandria pictured in one of my posts is still there and it's every bit as quaint.

Here are a couple more.
Raleigh Tourist bones that might be handy for rod brake parts.

Found this 1982 Trek 710 frame at a co-op. One seat stay was bent, so I had to fix that. Took some other parts I had laying around and made a bike for a friend out of it.

Price for the frame was very low, given the damage.

Buddy wanted modern, so thats what I did:

Some of the better gems that @RiddleOfSteel and I get to work on at the bike non-profit (BikeWorks.org) where we volunteer. You may recall the red repainted PX10E that he posted a few days ago.

Miyata 610, looks like '79 or so, and hoping that it will clean up nicely:



Pro Miyata, @RiddleOfSteel's next signature project:



And my next project, this lovely 1987 Dave Moulton 30th Anniversary Fuso:



I'll be inquiring about this Fuso's value when I finish it in a few weeks. I've already found a more appropriate length silver Cinelli stem for it.
