I agree with Jerry and also note that the fork crown does not look like PX-10 quality. Check out this web site for Peugeot information: http://home.wanadoo.nl/peugeotshow/

BTW, I also found a near perfect (but completely striped down) Peugeot Mixte frame in the garbage. I have built it up into a great bike for running errands. A strange thing about it is that it was apparently a 10 speed but it has only one brazed on fitting for a down-tube friction shift lever (on the right side) so I have to shift the chain ring manually, unless it was intended to be a five speeed?

It may be a PKN-10 as the seller speculates or PFN-10. Not a real low end model, though as it has quality forged dropouts. Probably no Reynolds tubes, but could be Vitus, which was still good stuff. Decal style looks like late 70's or very early 80's.

I currently have the archtypical white with black Nervex Pro lugs, but it is a 21" and really smaller than I prefer. This is not as cool, but about the right size and all the parts would work (right?)...
