PX-10 pricing.

This popped up locally, seller claims itís a 1972 PX-10 and is asking $400. Seems a bit high for the condition. My size and Iím interested but not at $400, whatís a reasonable value on this? Iím guessing $200.

At $200, a steal. At $400.00, a darn good deal. I have sold two, so far, and both went for over $1000.00 each.

I think $200-$250 is about right for this bike. That's around what I've been paying for top end French bikes from this era. You can find clean examples of PX 10s that don't need a lot of work--if you are patient--for $400-$500.

Near Chicago the bike would command $500, IMO

I own a '71 PX10 I paid $225, but it wasn't complete and had some substantial paint issues. I've restored it to a high standard.

The paint and decals appear to be in decent condition, though it is difficult to be certain from the photographs. Original paint and decals = a big plus.

I am concerned about the incorrect handlebar stem. You'd want to replace that with something of the correct diameter and check for damage to the steerer tube. Also check to see that both the stem and the seatpost will move freely, before purchasing the bike.

The rear derailleur appears to be a replacement, perhaps a SunTour. You want to check the rear drive side dropout to see how the new derailleur was mounted and if the Simplex integral hanger was damaged or removed.

The hub skewers are the older style Simplex, suggesting an earlier rather than later date for the wheels.

The pricing on Peugeot PX-10 has been all over the place. I've seen them below $200 and up in the stratosphere as Randy mentioned.

This one, if you have been looking a while and it is in your size and you like the overall condition, perhaps $200-300 on a good day. Budget extra dollars for the necessary replacement parts (brakes/brake levers, derailleur, shift levers, bar and stem, freewheel) if your goal is to make it factory stock.

With the exception of the brake levers and stem it looks like itís all there (from what can be seen). Needs clean up and detailing to be sure. Rear bag could hold some value depending on its maker. If it fits you, you could do worse than paying his asking price. Iíd feel better at $300 though...

...for many, many years, these were constantly listed on my local Bay Area CL, in various conditions, in the $300 to $500 range. It was like there was an endless supply of them, because so many got sold as the cheapest entry to the world of a real, 531 framed, "racing" bike back when they were new. Right now there are none listed on my local CL. So maybe the supply has gradually found its way into the hands of restorers and collectors?

Anyway, back in the day, even here, that one, in that condition, would probably not have sold for $400. But if the wheels are in good shape, stuff like replacing the stem and bar with something a little more durable was standard practice for me. I wouldn't pay $400 for it either. But I already have a couple of them. And good paint is worth a premium.

Sold that exact bare frame set in similar condition (above average) for $350 last week, if that's any help with perspective. My sale was on the higher end but still. Given the apparent condition of the one in question $400 is a good deal if it's a bike you really want, $250 would be a steal.

I sold a U010 in very good cosmetic shape, fixed up for $230 a week ago. I would imagine a PX10 in similar shape would command at least double that if not more.

Hard to say with just nds pics.

Is the frame worth $200? If so, maybe that's a reasonable offer for the whole thing.

For me, these are money pits with not much upside. Maybe $100.

I think it's a 1972 based on the lack of Nervex lugs. And I agree that $400 might be market rate at the moment, but it's far too much for that bike. I think I've owned four PX-10s, either bought as frame/fork only or complete bikes, and none was a keeper. My favorite ended up as a 3-speed build.

This is a great build. I know you built this with 26 x 1 and 3/8 rims. I'd be tempted to try this out since I have a set of rims this size but tire selection is limited. At this point, I'm more likely to go with 650b.

The 531 sticker is on the downtube instead of the seattube, and the straighter/less raked out fork says 1974

You got a good deal. I bought two top end French bikes (a Mercier 300 and a Motobecane Grand Record) from the 70s at right around that price. Plus your buddy got clinchers and the rear derailleur hanger looks to be modified to accept that Suntour RD. You'll need to track down or borrow a stronglight crank remover though.

Heck!, I still remember asking prices for good PX10's at $900 and higher, about 7 to 10 years ago.....
Lucky if you can sell a good one for 400 - 500 bucks these days..... And it won't get any better for most C&V bikes in the foreseeable future.

I don't think that's just a SoCal thing....
There was a guy on CL here about 10 years ago painting U08 and A08 lugs black and listing them as vintage Peugeot racing bikes with a mix match of parts on them.

When I was a 16 year old kid back in 1972 I bought a brand new Peugeot PX-10e by mail order for around $250 or so. It was amazing. Reynolds 531 stickers all over. Sew up tires. 21 pounds. I was flying past all my friends on their big heavy Schwinns like they were standing still. I don't know how Peugeot managed to produce so many exceptional bikes at such a low price. But, these bikes were state of the art at that time. As good or better than any Schwinn Paramount or Gitane Tour de France or, anything being made in Italy by Colnago or Bottecchia. Amazing then amazing now. Be good. Have fun.
