Peugeot PX10 questions

I have owned this PX10 since 1968 (bought it used from a bike shop in Chicage) I still ride it today - after reading some of the PX10 threads I am curious about the year of this bike.

It has the triangular front emblem and Mfac Dural Forge brakes - serial number is 361517.

Here are a few pictures - any thoughts whether it's rare or would have value - Unfortunately it's not totallty original - I've replaced the derailuers, shifters and hand brake handles - but the frame is untouched and rust free.

Here are some pictures (sorry about the sizing proportions).

It has the World Championship stripes which were reportedly first used on the 1966 models, to celebrate Tom Simpson's 1965 victory. That would narrow it down to 1966-1968. Hopefully, someone else has further information.

I think Tmars dating is in the ballpark, about as close as we can usually get on these.

Post on these is usually 26.6 (my 1973) or 26.4 (my 1972), but my 1967 is at 26.2, to answer your PM.

Your replacements would not be impossible to return to original stock. Probably do nothing to the value.

I would guess closer to 1968 than 1966. Nice bike!
