and lotta 'bay sellers list 'record du monde' thing in which i believe doing nothing with the model name or so.

Hoss - THIS IS THE THREAD for posting your buddy's U-08. As I said, I love 'em too, but this is is the PX thread.

Does this Peugeot Super Competition count? I now have a fork for the bike and seek only the stupid front derailleur before I start the project.

Look for ads without any pictures and descriptions like "Old 10-speed bike -Want it gone today". These are the best deals on PX-10s.


Seriously, there was a fair amount of variation in PX10s over the years an they can be hard to spot. I don't know if anything is hard and fast, (especially with tubing labels falling victim to time) but I hope this helps:
  • Slanted Reynolds 531 labels variously placed on ST or DTs
  • Reynolds labels on the fork (most but not all came with them)
  • "Inoxydable" label on the ST
  • Half-chromed stays (on most earlier vintages)
  • 26.4 Simplex seat post (with fancy Nevex lugs)
  • 26.6 seat post (with plain lugs)
  • Stronglight alloy non-cottered crank
  • Mavic Racer or Competition center pulls
  • Lugs painted black to contrast with frame
  • Lugs NOT painted black to contrast with frame
  • Tubular rims
(most I've seen have been replaced with clinchers)

I am sure the experts here could add to the list of cues.

I've posted before about the nimrod previous owner who drewed off the derailleur hanger, so far be it from to to b***h about it yet again. Dang it all.
No, feel free to vent. It could have entertainment value.

Nice one RK1963.

(I think that sort of answers randyjawa's question on Super Competitions too)

Some beautiful bikes shown here. Thanks to all that are posting pictures.

In the mid '80s I bought quite a few PX-10s from a local university at the end of the school year for $25-40 a piece and then resold them. Seems they were the near top of the line non-customs at a local bike shop and the parents of rich students would purchase them as local transport, and when the students graduated they would just abandon them. I wish I still had a few left.....

Thanks Auchencrow! For this one, the toptube reads supercompetition and the "little paper label" that appears under the bottom bracket, reads pxn10e60, therefore, I think it qualifies. Plus, I have seen catalog scans advertising it as a px10. It really handles well.

I absolutely adore that bike - but would you mind setting the saddle in a less slanted position? The handlebars might be turned a little, clockwise, too

I remember that PX. It was the bike I always wanted when I first started racing. The seller had several NOS Peugeots, but that PX was really special. Too bad no member of my family could fit on it. Last month, though, I bought a 49cm 1985 PX off of some pickers. It was apparently being used as a wall hanging. The thing was unridden, and still had the original Wolber tublars. My wife has taken it for a few rides, and even though she does not ride much, she recognized that it was a really nice bike. Except for the brakes. Those rebadged mid range Modolos were a huge mis-step. Full Mavic, including bar, stem and seat post.

"Rebadged" to "Peugeot"? I actually thought all Peugeots came with MAFAC brakes?

The 85 and 86 PX came with a full Mavic road group and Columbus SLX tubing. In a way, these bikes were quite different that all of the other PX bikes. Even though the brakes said MAVIC on them in bold black letters, they were really Modolo Speedy's. I always though they should have at least used Pro's. The Speedy was a lousy brake and the quality did not compare to the rest of the group.
I never really cared for the pre 1980 PX bikes (sorry everyone) but the ones from the 80's have a place in my heart, especially the 85 and 86, probably because that is when I was bit by the bike bug.

This sucks

In the past two days I've realized through two separate threads that I must have:

1) A three-speed (30s Hercules looks like a winner)
2) A Peugeot PX-10

All thanks to you sorry bunch of enablers - and I'm not even halfway done with my most recent build

DD -
You ought to consider a few more French bikes while you are at it: How about at Peugeot PSV10, and a Gitane TdF and a Motobecane Team Champion?
- They'll make great foils for your PX10!
And in the 3-speed department, your "must have" is a 1930's Raleigh Record Ace.

BTW - We may be enablers but WE'RE NOT SORRY!
