All my PX-10's have the chromed fork ends & rear stays. but recently I did some work on a friends Beuatiful Peugeot that he purchased new in 1978, it has full Reynolds 531 frame & forks, all French 531 decals are perfect, has the older Peugeot decals with the rainbow stripes on each end of the Peugeot downtube decal, all the parts are the same as other PX-10's (Mafac brakes, Stronglight 49, Phillipe stem, Super champion tubulars) the forks are the smooth rounded sloped top forks without the big crown as most other peugeots of this time. The main difference is: The bike is all black with NO chrome. It also has an Ideale 2001 saddle, brazed on Simplex retro-friction shifters. I wonder if this could have been a French model normally not sold in the US? Any comments Thank You, John A. Quigley Eric Elman wrote:I'd venture a guess that it is indeed a PX-10. Tell tale signs are the remnants of the Reynolds decal on top of the seat tube, Nervex Dubois lugs which were reasonably common, especially from around 1972 onwards and finally the chromed rear stays. I believe that the rear stays were only chromed on the PX-10 (full 531db model).
