A PX-10 was always an object of desire for me. That should be a fun bike to restore.

A first French among all English steel in my collection, good occasion on ebay. A little bit to small for me, but I'll see how it rides. I'm not sure if I should keep it original and re-build to specification or upgrade it a little bit with Simplex Super LJ gearset that I have somewhere in a box. I want to change the wheelset. The paintwork will stay original with some touch ups, chrome is still in very good shape.

in pieces now...

Voilà!

I replaced gearset with Super LJ, brakes with other set of Racers, slightly newer and better shape. Saddle is Wrights Swallow.
A few things to finish: pedal dustcap missing (or maybe I will change pedals completely for Lyotard MB23). Brake cable clamps bolts missing (already ordered). One brake yoke is Weinmann and will be replaced with Mafac. And the most important thing - wheelset, now it has wheels borrowed from my other bike.
and I'm super :D after (almost) finishing...

Very attractive indeed.

I bet someone says "Shorten those cables..."

Thanks! I did notice it as well. After I finished. I was even slightly tempted to fix it, but this time - no way! Racers are real PITA to adjust, you need 4 hands and some time to do it... Maybe when I'll find proper wheels for this bike.

Small update. Replacement brake cable clamps bolts arrived and now fitted on the bike. Kool-stop brake blocks ordered, so it will have brake cables shortened soon... ;) Hubs and rims ordered. I decided that it will ride on tubulars so Pelissier 1001 Competition large flange and Super Champion Record sprint rims ordered as well.
The rims and hubs are like these:

I started to use it as my commuter and I think it will stay like this for some time.

I'm not sure if I've chosen good rims as I couldn't find any info about them but I like the shape :p
They fit the period and the bike, I think. Hubs as well.
...and the bike rides really nice, handles easily and is very responsive.

I cannot agree more. The finished article is a fantastic, so sympathetically restored - I'm very envious....how does it ride? :twisted:
