If all the decals are there, the PX-10 will also have Reynolds 531 tubing decals, while the UO-8 will probably say something like "special lightweight Peugeot tubing". One of the odd things about Peugeots that the designations by which they are known and which appeared in the catalogs - PX-10, PY-10, UO-8, etc. never, to my knowledge, appeared on the bikes. In the late 70's or the 80's, some models did have "subtitles" if you will, like "Competition" or Triathlon" that did appear on the frame, but Peugeot fans still referred to them mostly by the alphanumeric model codes, not the names on the frames.
