Simplex rear drop outs. 28mm seat tube and it says Peugeot but i think its a repaint. Weight was a hair over 24lbs. Got it cheap and it has campy crank, brakes, derailleurs, pedals and headset. Cinelli bars and stem. I have no idea what model and cant find a serial number.
any knowledge would be great.

I'm no expert, but those look like PX-10 Nervex lugs, but maybe a replacement fork. A semi-informed guess...

frame appears a boom era PX which has had ten braze-ons added

fork ends unlikely to match dropouts

Honestly, this is what PX10's should have looked like when new. It's too bad the 1979/80 PX10s weren't as classy as this custom.

Is it just me, or is that a 1980's-era sloping crown Peugeot PSN-10 fork, with the Peugeot logo cast into the crown?

no logo in the crown. Also i think the serial number may have been welded over. This was donated to our coop and no one but me was interested.

Assuming that this is a pre-1975 PX10 frame, having braze-on mods, and with a later, sloping-crown fork.

It would be interesting to measure the frame angles.
Pre-1972 frame would be about 72 degrees, while post-1972 frame would be about 75 degrees (for both ST and HT).

1972 frame would have plain lugs.

What dropouts at the fork tips?

26.4 could be metric 531 or 501 but lugged, 531 is more likely

the brief riding I've done on it was quite pleasant and forgiving even with 27 by 1 inch tires

That is a nice Peugeot! What color is it? I am surprised to see that end up at a coop, on the other hand, if something happens to me, I hope that at least some of my bikes can be appreciated.

its brown but i am sure its a repaint, im goi g to put some 700cs on it. I've got a set with campy rims. Since little or nothing is original i think its a real nice blank canvas.
