Hi retro roadies, just picked up this 1960 PX10 in its original spec apart from the rear skewer which is Campag instead of Simplex. My plan is a sympathetic restoration keeping the original battle scared paint and cleaning and polishing the components. Everything is covered in a thick layer of grime which seems to have preserved the bike really well.
Take a look:

While I'm in retro memory mode, don't forget to check the stem for cracks where the slots have been cut for expansion.

Re:

Peugeot BP team colours were blue and yellow up to 64... then it was black & white..start of the Merckx Simpson era. Not pulled the stem yet, so will check.

Nothing productive to add, but that's a lovely old thing, really charming and looks very original?!

That is a very lovely old Peugeot and it should clean up really nicely.
Great find and look forward to seeing it revealed :)

Let's not forget Pino Cerami, another great Peugeot pro rider.
Pino piloted a PX10 to victory in the 1960 Paris Roubaix.

Re:

Finally made a start on stripping down and cleaning the PX. Rear mech is a Simplex Juy 60 Record, type 2 according to Velobase, only made 1960-61 so quite rare. Thick layer of grime has protected it really well and has cleaned up nicely.
