1973 Peugeot PX10E, custom paint, repro late 60s decals. This is one of the "upright" geometry PX10s. Started life for me as a completely black "Italian" frame from eBay. I suspected it was actually a Peugeot because of the Nervex Pro lugs. Since it already had a good black paint job I decided to do an "inverse" PX10 paint job. I liked the late 60s PX10 graphics best so I went with those decals, although this is almost certainly an early 70s model. I then sourced period correct components that are not all original but are reasonable choices. The chrome is actually chrome paint since the original chrome was painted over and I did not want to try and remove the paint.

Amazing build! Really love the inverted paint scheme! A wonder Peugeot never offered it themselves. Nice work!

The rear brake cable guides, shifter bosses, and bottle bosses are throwing me. Were they added or is this newer than early 70's?

added when bike was painted

The cable guides, shifter bosses and bottle bosses were added when the bike was painted. Not by me but by the previous owner.
