Peugeot PX-10 Racer (1980s) SOLD

21 Aug

Description

For sale, a retro men’s 1980′s Peugeot PX-10 road racing bicycle, handmade in France with Weinmann brakes and Shimano 12 speed gears. Frame is Reynolds 531 c-t-c steel. A classic lightweight.

After the first Tour de France win, the Peugeot cycling team remained active in the Tour and other European cycle races. Peugeot would go on to become the most successful factory team of all time in the Tour de France, winning the race a record ten times.

First introduced as a model in 1953, the PX-10 was traditionally one of Peugeot’s high-end bicycles. By the early 1970s, the PX-10 used a frame made with Reynolds 531 chromoly steel tubing and was fitted with lightweight aluminium alloy components. The PX-10 was sold in the U.S. from 1975 to 1980 but it continued to be produced for sale in European markets through 1986.

A fantastic cycle, ideal for racing, touring and commuting. Will be sad to see it go!

Second hand condition – spots of surface rust here and there. Like most vintage cycles its not perfect!
