Don's notes about quality control are good points. If I am correct, and this is indeed a '79-83, I would think the quality would be pretty good. My memory is that most of the really questionable PX-10s were build during the bike boom of '72-74, when they were stamping them out like cookies. I also suspect most of the ones with really strange geometry date from that era.

For a while there, I had a complete '73 PX-10E and a complete '74 PX-10LE, as well as a '67 PX-10E frameset and a c. 1975-78 PY-10 frameset. The '67 was the nicest of the lot, with little touches that seemed to me to indicate a little more care in its construction. The '77 had the nicest looking angles, to be honest. The complete bikes both had much steeper frame angles - and they also had odd serial numbers that didn't fit the normal scheme, too. Someday I hope to have answers for the last.
