I need to find a home for a later PX-10. I don't know the exact designation for this frame -- it once was a pearl white "Super Competition", made in the early '80's.

-64 to top -531 -Simplex drops with Campy-style adjusters and der threads -Fr. threaded, at least, the BB is -Cage bosses on both down and seat tubes, shifter bosses -Includes Gipiemme alloy HS with Campy SR lock-nut. Feels a bt dry, but smooth. -Includes an American Classic 26.4 post -Repainted Molteni orange, with non-original, but good-looking Peugeot transfers -Very presentable, with moderate chips


Also, a question about Mafac "LS" brakes. Highly polished sidepulls, drilled levers similar to "2000" set, unique (well, they are French!) bolt arrangement -- a tidy allen bolt goes through the frame and screws into the caliper, rather than the other way around. Allen bolt head is broadly shouldered, and works like a nutted caliper -- this is not for recessed frames.

I've never seen these before. What vintage? Nice brakes?
