PX-10 lugs were usually painted black. Typically, the rest of the frame was white, but they also came in blue, yellow and I think in a dark red. Even those colors may have had black lugs, so yours may be original.

My guess is that it's from the early 70's, but not entirely sure. Had Mafac Competition calipers, Stronglight 49D cranks, Simplex Criterium rear derailleur and much more. But those parts grew wings and flew away. Still has Maillard "Peugeot Trophy" foil decal large flange hubs laced to red-diamond label Mavic "Championnat Du Monde" tubular rims. Has a stem that looks very similar to an ATAX only the word "Peugeot" appears on the sides along with Stronglight Competition headset and Stronglight BB.

Here are my questions for the seasoned Peugeot experts:

The serial # is on a little strip of aluminum that is pinned onto the BB. It reads: 0956791. Anyone know what year this frame is?

Next, the lugs around the headtube have been painted black and do not go with the semi-metallic blue frame. I want to paint all of the lugs so that there is a killer contrast. I'm thinking white or yellow. My question here is: What type of paint should I use? By that I mean: lacquer? enamel? I don't know the first thing about paint.
