Subject: [CR] FS: Peugeot PXN-10E 56cm 1980 1981 highly original "barn find"


I have been on a lengthy quest to find a Peugeot PXN-10E like one I had when I was a kid. I recently purchased this one out-of-state from the original owner, but he measured it incorrectly, and I already own the same bike in 56... and 62... like I said, it's been a long quest. Following today's PXN discussion, I thought I'd post it for sale.

The PXN-10E "Super Competition" was the PX-10 of its era. Only the custom-order PY10CP was higher. Specs for the 1980 and 1981 US models are identical, so this bike is one of those two years.

The bike is a real time capsule, or to borrow a term from the car world, a "barn find." It appears to be completely original, with only the curious exception of the hubs. There is minor rust on many parts, and I have not tried to clean or adjust anything. To preserve its originality and to keep cost down, I'm offering it to the list as-is, so a new owner can decide how far to go with restoration.

Here are the specs and some comments:
