Peugeot PY10

Peugeot PY10 016..jpgPeugeot PY10 003..jpgPeugeot PY10 025..jpgPeugeot PY10..jpg

I purchased this Peugeot PY new in 1977 and paid $624.00. I special ordered this bike and had a few options added that you probably will never find on another PY10 such as eyelets both front and rear. I had this done so when all the bikes were together prior to a race I could more easily find mine just by looking at the dropouts!
As far as parts they are mostly origional other than shifters which were replaced with Campy. As parts wore out I did replace with the correct replacement parts such as is the case with the front derailleur. I still ride this bike from time to time. It's a pleasure to ride.

This modle has always been on my "Holy Grail" list (since about 1980)....Beautiful, beautiful bike!!!

Cheers,

Brought back to life!!

1972 Motobecane Le Champion. Campagnolo Nuovo Record derailleurs not installed yet as I need both the front and rear derailleurs. rear was missing and the front is in pretty bad shape. So in the meantime I installed a set of Huret Jubile derailleurs and shifters. They really look and work great!

After it sat in my basement for two years - I finally got around to cleaning up my own c. '72 PX10. I may have offended a few sensibilities by installing a Maillard clincher wheel set with the much-maligned Helicomatic hub.

Boy, is that thing smooth!

(I did not look back after installing some skinny Panaracers... The original sprint wheels are now hanging in my garage's rafters.)

Late 70s PX 10, very orig. except wheels. Simplex seatpost was tough to get out and I didn't do it any favors, but it was somewhat removed and still usable, just not 100% clean

1971 Gitane Super Corsa

Well, it’s time to show her off. This bike is essentially NOS. It was purchased in 1971 by someone 5’9”. He rode it about 50 miles and then hung it up in his rafters. The brake pads still have the seam running down the center.

After being brow-beaten by several more “serious” C&V friends, I have swapped out a few parts that they insist are “too valuable” to use. sigh. This includes those brake pads, the saddle, the derailleur pulleys, and the Campy pedals with the toe clip piece.

Very soon, I’ll be swapping the cheap brake pads for Kool-Stop inserts. These don’t have much stopping power (and I’m overweight, to boot). BullsEye pulley wheels. Vintage NOS Way Assauto road pedals. I actually like the PowerGrips. Replacement cable housing and brake hoods, of course.

The Brooks saddle has splayed rails and, more importantly, it tilts significantly to one side. I can use a vise to bring them in, but the tilt problem remains - and it is very highly annoying. Wayne, at Velo Classique, is following up to see if a Brooks service center will assist in this matter (and at a reasonable price). The saddle leather is in fabulous shape. If the repair price is too high, I just might ride it tilted! In the meantime, an old Avocet Touring II from my parts box is fine.

Ah, and the inner crank ring. It came with a Sugino 46 inner ring. I swapped in a new TA 41 ring. The outer ring is original.

Otherwise, this bike is original. This is the original finish and original decals. My first “real” bike was a 1971 Tour de France. I still have it, although it needs the overhaul that this baby just received. I’m sourcing a few NOS replacement parts for it, while I consider whether to have that frame refinished or not. It’s got a lot of battle scars.

Anyway, this is my freshly rebuilt 1971 Gitane Super Corsa.







I'll cross-post to C&V rides later, but she's French, so belongs here first.

Cheers!

Oh, and the wheels! Original Campy high-flange hubs, but I replaced the Mavic Champion du Monde tubular rims with Wolber Alpine and Grand Bois tires.

Anybody need a barely used set of vintage Mavic tubular rims?

I love that Super Corsa. I have been looking high and low for an SC to come up around my neck of the woods...no luck .

Are those Mavics Championnat Du Mondes? How much are looking for them? Got pics? PM I suppose.

A red Super Corsa sat for a few years in the Colley Avenue Bike Shop (Norfolk Va) I used to go to in the 70's. I used to admire it quite a bit. It was my first exposure to the fabulousness of Campagnolo.
