PX-10 will have chromed rear 1/2 stays, stronglight cotterless crankset, Aluminum sew-up rims, Simplex badged micro-adjust seatpost, Brooks saddle (usually), aluminum hbars, Reynolds 531 decals. UO-8 will only have 1/2 chromed fork, steel cottered crankset, plain steel seatpost, steel rims, Agda saddle, steel hbars.

Good luck.
