Peugeot Super Competition = PX-10...right?

Just want to double check...have an opportunity to buy a Peugeot Super Competition...this is what Peugeot called later models of the PX-10, correct? Is there any other difference? The seller is calling it a "501" but the crappy pictures look like full Reynolds 531 decals...to me anyway...

Nice bike. My 1966 px-10 has chromed fork and chromed back stays. That is the only way I have seen px-10s

This could be a 1982 "PXN10" see RetroPeugeot's catalog archive. It's a bit grainy, but I think the top tube even has "Super Competition" marked in script near the seat tube. Nice bike...Hope it fits you!

Quick! save that Peugeot! Just look at the handlebar torture it's going through!
It's a good one with what look like Simplex Super LJ and Spidel components. It looks to be all French except for the tubing, of course. A classic 80's Peugeot!
Hope you snag it!
Post up some pics when you get it home.

Its some incarnation of a px10 and it loooks like a suede saddle. Perhaps a gallet or ideale 2002.
All around great bike.

Newbie here. Would the PX 10 make a good fixie? I got my eye on a frame for 80 bucks. Here is the description:


"frame in good condition with bottom bracket. the frame has no damage but was repainted a few years ago. it was a project i started and never finished. i have a shimano 105 crank installed on an aftermarket bottom bracket made with french threads. seven speed shifters and shimano derailers."

As there is no real "ideal" fisxifying candidate for multi speed bikes, maybe this could be just attempt to get a rise out of c&Vers here......Why post this question in this forum?
Troll Alert!??

$80?? My money says that first: It's not a PX-10.
Second: It's been stripped and repainted so... some modifications are already underway. Don't do anything that cannot be undone.
Third: This is a bit of a thread hijacking.

"Super Competition" is what they called the PX10 in the eighties when they started giving their bikes names.

ohjonnybegoode - That sure looks like an eighties diagonal full Reynolds 531 label to me! Good luck snagging that one. A "Super" Peugeot indeed.

- And don't forget report back here when you get it with lots of pics!
