The seamed forks weren't toooo bad - they came stock on what was for a long time the next-to-top o' the line PR-10L, which used Reynolds 531 BUTTED main tubes, as opposed to some Raleighs that used 531 plain gauge ...

I still wonder what Peugeot used for the stays on the PR/PK series bikes. If you find a 1970-78 Peugeot with forged Simplex dropouts but NO chrome on the rear, that's what you're looking at, btw ... strangely enough, I think they're scarcer than the more expensive PX-10s were ...
