Bruce, like you I assembled a lot of bikes working in a shop from 1968-1972 or so, including Peugeot's. While most of the PX-10's were white, the one I have in my garage is blue, original paint from the factory. Of the lightweights made with 531 tubing, it was definitely the economy model. Somehow, the price of $169 is in my mind, while a Paramount might have been around $300.

Yes: this is the way they came in the earlier years. I pulled many out of their boxes and assembled them. Unfortunately then it was just a job and it took a while for the love of quality to sink in. I liked the Italian bikes at work and the Peugeot's were just ho-hum The Mercians were still a pretty bike and I loved the quality of the paint. But a PX-10 nice bike but it was like a model T Ford...It only came in one color. But look at the price it now..... BT
