Tom, yes there was a time when they did not use the Nervex Pro's. David Goerndt could propably tell you which lugs were used with a little greater detail but Prugnet and Nervex Non-Pro's were used as well. As a matter of fact, I have a few old pictures showing some of the larger Peugeot Team riders on fillet brazed PX-10's. Though I know of none that were actually produced for the everyday consumer. It probably wasn't even a Peugeot at all-well you know all about "bowlachili's", don't you? I was also told by an old Peugeot importer that they were building so many bikes during the "boom" that they continually ran out of Pro's and built with whatever was laying around. That can probably be validated by the lack of quality and quality control around that time. The bikes spoke for themselves. My '67 was built with much greater care than my '75. I'm sure that David G. could once again attest. I say indulge yourself, give it a good tuneup and enjoy the ride.
