An eBay seller in Hungary is convinced that his NOS mid 70s Peugeot PR-10 is a PY-10.


What's most interesting is the PY10 bike pictured in the "Enlarge" window at the top of the listing.

It's a dark green mid 70s PY10 with chrome Nervex lugs. The text in the picture is in Dutch but says that the frame is made of 3/10 Reynolds tubing.

I Photo Shopped the picture and the bike is definitely green. The Reynolds decals appear to be 753 which would explain the 3/10 claim.

I've never seen any Peugeot like the one in the Dutch ad before.

Editorial note on PX-10s listed on eBay and Craigslist:

It seems that almost half of the Peugeots listed on those 2 sites that aren't U0-8s are billed as PX-10s by the sellers.

They call any Peugeot with alloy cranks a PX-10! half of them are PR-10s or similar models.

Many of these sellers get defensive when someone suggests that their description or listing is wrong.
