I just now weighed my PX-10 using my bathroom scale, once holding the bike and then just me. Difference; 22 lbs.

Caveats: 1966, 56cm (c-t-c) PX-10E. All original equipment except for DT stainless spokes in place of the Robergels. Conti Giros. Tires not filled for the weighing, but then I didn't dust it off either. Also includes funky steel bottle cage (see pictures on my web site) and under-saddle tire bungy.
