Peugeot PX-10E

I stumbled across this site while seeking a replacement small rivet Brooks Pro saddle for my '75 Peugeot PX-10E. Bought the bike new while I was in grad school, and immediately modified if for racing. In addition to its standard Reynolds 531 DB frame, the bike has Campy small flange hubs, Robergel butted spokes, Campy seat post and bolt, Campy front and rear derailleurs/levers/guides, Campy sidepull brakes and levers, Cinelli bars and stem with Campy bar plugs, Campy pedals, Binda straps/Christophe clips/Campy buttons, Cinelli Unicanitor saddle, gold lightweight 13-21 cluster (forget the manufacturer - Atom?), and gold lightweight shortened chain (same manufacturer as cluster - Atom?). I retained the standard issue PX-10E Stronglite headset/bottom bracket/cranks/45-52 chainwheels. The stock chainwheels were professionally lightened by removing select pieces of webbing. The result was a lightweight, tough, and highly responsive criterium racer. On the esthetic front, I painted the Nervex scroll lugs black with gold pinstriping. Nearly 35 years after it was first put into use the bike looks brand new. The bright white paint has no damage, dings, etc. Sorry -- no pictures to share at this time. I am interested in a mint condition small rivet Brooks Pro saddle, if there is one out there.

I'll see if I can get my cellphone camera to get a good photo of my old PX10-E.

From Lancashire?

As far as I know, "Reagan" (originally "O'Riagain" -- pronounced something like "O'Ryan" and meaning "little king" in gaelic) comes from three counties in southern Ireland. Several spelling variations, but all the same extended group. And there's no telling how many of them owned a PX10-E.
