Really nice, Peter. Until now, I'd seen this model only in the photos in the original catalog I got with my 1986 PZ. Your PX was by then third in the line after the Vitus-framed PY-10 FC (Fibre de Carbon) and the all-Campy PZ. But the Tout Mavic PX now seems cooler than either of the models above it in 1985. The mid-80's Peugeots were really the last classic ones, with lugged steel frames and non-indexed shifting. That may be why Dale put my 1986 PZ on the CR site, even though it is a couple of years beyond the 1983 cutoff. I don't think he'll complain about this one either. I think it is KOF, not in the sense of honoring past tradition, but in having clung to the original tradition for a couple of more years.
