Peugeot - A PX10, PY, custom, or other?

I've done some research mostly based on images and have not been able to establish a certain ID on my Peugeot. I normally don't ask for help but Peugeots sometimes need a group effort from what I've been observing.
Pics seem to help the most - so here are some in acquired condition, feel free to ask for more. The previous owner acquired it in Europe and said it was not a model that was marketed in US. He believed it to be a custom build (possibly Prestige) based on not being able to locate a similar model, and based on the frame and build. It does have the Hand Brazed sticker on non-drive side, wheels are Mavic 190 FB, hubs are Maillard, headset is Spidel, dropout rear is Spidel, 531 stickers on frame and fork. classicrendezvous.com states that letter B indicates 1980 (mine is B2030???) but graphics are similar to a Phil Anderson's '82. It rides beautifully BTW. Any feedback is welcomed and will promice to update on any new info - thanks!

I can't help you with the ID but if I had a Peugeot that nice, I'd keep it in the kitchen too! I have a 1983 Peugeot PXN 10 so I'm a fan of this era of Peugeot and these graphics.

As far as I know, chrome on the rear triangle of a PX series Peugeot plus the Reynolds 531 SL sticker means that this is one of the really high end Pugs (something higher end than a "garden variety" PXN 10).

Your frame was manufactured in March 1982. The "B" designates the production facility and has nothing to do with the date. The Reynolds 531 SL tubeset was used on the Pro 10 and PY10 that year. Based on the presence of a re-branded Stronglight 106 crankset, it is a 1982 Peugeot PY10.

This is a good description of some of the differences between a PX 10 and a PY 10
