Hi Charlie,

I've seen and owned quite a number of Peugeot PX-10 and related models. On gearing, I do not recall the range from memory, but 14/21 was the high/low and the freewheel was a Cyclo Competition. Tonight I can count up the inner cog teeth and get back to you. I have a few of these on my bikes and in my spares bin. Re. the headbadges, my experience has been that the the PX-10E and PX-10LE always had a sticker while the other models such as the PR-10's had a metal and plastic headbadge. It would seem to me that the nicer metal and plastic headbadge would have been used on their top models but can only guess that they used the sticker to imply that every effort was made to save weight. The PX-10E was among the lightest production bikes you could buy in early/mid 70's.

Hope that helps a bit.........
