Peugeot PX10 Classic Roadbike 1971
- Manufacturer: Peugeot
- Size: 60 cm
Peugeot was one of those early bicycle manufacturers which grew big and succsessful during the 20th century. Their first bike was already built as early as 1882. But their reputation grew mainly due to their racing activities. Peugeot sponsored victorious racing squads and cyclists from 1903 until 1983.
In this time they managed to win the tour de france 10 times and countless championships, classics and one day races. Who has not seen the pictures of Tom Simpson and Eddy Merckx, winning the World Championships 1965 and 1967 on a Peugeot PX 10?
And here we have one of those successful bikes a Peugeot PX 10 from 1971. And it is pretty original, too.
The tubes are Reynolds 531 butted ones and the lugs are beautiful Nervex Professional. As for the parts - there might have been just one change to the original setup by switching the front derailleur. From the brakes to the hubs, everything else is likely original.
It radiates all that aura of reliability for which the models of Peugeot were known and highly regarded.
A great detail is that we got the original invoice to this bike, which had been bought in Munich in 1971.
The condition of this Peugeot PX 10 makes it very well suitable for riding it in vintage cycling events. Just a perfect ride for historic races. If you are searching for an Eroica bike, this one might just be the ticket.
