You might be right. While the first PY-10 versions sold in europe 1976 were the expensive custom order bikes http://home.wanadoo.nl/peugeotshow/images/1976_5.jpg ("op maat gemaakt" = made to measure) in later years german catalogues showed two PY-10 versions, maybe only one being custom made. Which would explain the different price lists I've seen (PX-10: ~1000 DM, PY-10: 1700 DM, but also more than 3000 DM)

I've had the 76 german catalogue containing only one PY-10 (named PY-10 "Thevenet") which matches mine. The large side view (unfortunately not available at the peugeotshow page) shows clearly golden SLJs and Mafacs (without(!) brazeons), green 531 decals, tied spokes, etc.

BTW: Should we start a discussion if the tied spokes of the PY-10 made sense? :-)
