very nice respray!

105bis chainwheels also non-stock

they were not created until 1977

potential spacing problem as teeth cut from both sides of stock, unlike the 93 c/w's which are cut from one side of stock, fitting them increases space between c/w's

was hardwood plug in steerer retained when frame refinished?

dropout adjusters do not look correct, should be ALGI for Juy



handlebar end plugs should be VELOX rubber



handlebar wrap looks GHASTLY. like something Paris Hilton might wear - ruched. correct would be VELOX Tressostar.



correct drive chain SEDIS with off-black finish.

correct gear block ATOM.

original cable casing, cables and ferrules were by Etablissements Jeunehomme, "EJAC" brand

correct pedal Lyotard 45CA with Christophe clip and Lapize strap.

The wood plug was in the steerer. I think I have it somewhere. The Tape! I rode it with black tressostar but it was pretty ratty and I had this. Interesting about the chain wheels and dropout adjusters. I found it like this.

Thank you for the additional photo and information.

Sorry if I sounded too harsh in above message. Not intended.

Purchased a PX-10E new in 1970 so am familiar.

Also have serviced several others.

The Atom 440 pedals the bike wears in this new photo would not have been original.
The "spurs" on the Lyotard 45CA pedals it came with limit the width of the foot/shoe which can be fitted. If owner had large/wide feet and/or wished to ride in work shoes (for example) the original pedals would have been unworkable. So the 440 is a very reasonable choice.

Some riders say they have no problems when running later chainwheels where the dentition is cut from both sides on the 93 model arms. It does increase the space between chainwheels and so increases the chance of wedging the chain between them.

Minor usage tip: cycle wears the early form ("Mk.I" or "G1") of the model 93 chainset. The distal end of the arm is chamfered. This makes it vulnerable to radial failures at the pedal hole. Design revised in 1972 to add more material in this area. The image employed at VB for the 93 shows the difference as it is a mixed set; right arm early and left arm late:



One precaution which can be taken is to take extra care not to strike a pedal during cornering.


Edited original message with additional information.

OT -

stupid nautical question -

is white box at stern of keel on sailboat part of hull or is it protective cover for rudder during storage and transport?

That is the keel. She is quite the rower as well as sailer. The rudder is removed in storage and transport. Thanks for the PX-10 info.
