Mes amis,
      C'est facile - this eBay bike is a PGN-10. By the way, there is a really good chance that it has a Swiss threaded fixed cup. Mine did and several Px-10 and Pxx-10 variants that I've worked on over the years have had Swiss threaded fixed cups. It's not just a Motobecane thing. My assumption for seemingly stuck French fixed cups is that there's a 50/50 chance the cup is Swiss theaded. Anyway, Peugeot seemed to use them on numerous occasions. For what reason I do not know. Due to parts shortages? Merely to keep life interesting. I'm convinced we'll never really learn the answer.
     But back to that PGN-10. The Reynolds 501 frames are actually pretty light - as light as frames made from say Columbus SL. The forks on the PGN-10s were very heavy, though, as if they expected you to buy a bike and immediately enter Paris-Roubaix.
      Best regards,
