It has a few hallmarks of a PY10, in fact; a bit later than my own area of expertise (?) but the braze-ons, rear dropout adjusters and tubing are all very similar to my '79 PY10LC. I would select a colour from what Peugeot offered for the Izoard back then - it will look right and not devalue a premium classic bike.

PX - or PY?

For those of you who will mentally strangle me, I have a few crazy ideas for the pain....just haven't quite figured it out. This will be a summer project after the Trek, Faggin, AD SLE, MBK...

Is that not the original paint?

Nope. Rattle can over rust spots. I think it was probably originally pearl white.

Just finished restoring a 1976 PX10 recently bought for a friend, only FD and headset weren’t original. Did it with some changes/upgrades to accommodate the owners’ specific needs for uphill climbing and esthetics:
- Simplex Slj retrofriction shifters
- Stronglight triple crank
- Simplex SJ triple FD
- Simplex SX410 long cage RD (completely serviced and repaired)
- Maillard Course 6s freewheel (also serviced and now turning smoothly)
- Stronglight Competition headset
The C&V forum is a huge help to solve those issues that obviously appear in these kind of works!

Very nice! I just put Retrofrictions on my '72 PX and LOVE them!
What did you need to do to the SX410? I've got a pretty rough one I'd like to rehab for a build, but haven't found an info source on how to rebuild..... (possibly not possible.... I think at one time someone didn't know Simplex RD's are unscrewed from the inside and tried to unscrew it by the pivot, so that's the first thing that needs attention....)

thanks, I learned a lot from this video, itís in French but you can have English subtitles:
Then I also followed the technical scheme on the official Simplex catalogue.

In your case what happened to the hanger bolt is quite typical, itís likely the spring inside is damaged. That was my case and I had to replace both spring and bolt, lucky I could find them on another cheaper Simplex rd that was compatible.
In servicing the SX410 the tricky part is the spring inside the parallelogram body: when putting it back, thereís a hidden hole inside allowing for the only position possible, I had to play with it a bit before finding the right one.
Also tricky was loading the springs to have a proper tension.
Hope this helps.

Will edit this comment when I _finally_ find a PX-10 locally. 1 year and counting so far.
