Bob,

I think the consensus among the Peugeot experts is the PR didn't have the full 11-tube Reynolds DB set or chromed rear stays on mine. My best theory now is I have PX-10 frame with a PR-10 fork added later, unless Brian Blum is right that some PX-10s got the cheaper crown at the factory.

In '72 I was torn between the Gitane Interclub and the Raleigh Super Course. Both had cottered cranks but the Gitane had tubulars (sprints). I chickened out on the tubulars and got the Raleigh, but within a year or two I put tubular wheels on it after all! I think I had upgraded the crank to a Nervar Star by then, so I never had a bike with cottered cranks and tubulars at the same time.

I guess this is a sine qua non of the REAL classic rider, eh?
