Spray-can black ugly 1972 Peugeot px-10

I couldn't resist the urge, and bought another frame that will become a fixie. After negotiating a price with the seller, he agreed to end the auction early since I had bought other stuff from him online.

Here's the description, "Circa 1972 Peugeot PX-10 road frame serial number 2432 713 that has had the rear derailleur hanger tab removed. Has plain Nervex lugs, fancy Nervex Professional BB shell, and long horizontal Simplex dropouts, so it will work great as a fixed gear. Includes a French threaded Campy bottom bracket which feels very smooth. Also includes a Campy lookalike Tange headset. seat tube measures 53 CM center to top and the top tube measures 55.75 cm center to center.

The paint appears to be spray can, and is very ugly black. The chrome looks great! Full return privilege if not satisfied.

I am very much looking forward to seeing this in person. French bikes can be a little difficult to work with because of the french threads and sizes. Fortunately this one already has a bottom bracket and headset installed. :)

Bike looks great. I built it up in about an hour with parts from my old peugeot and black Dimension/Bulletproof single-speed crank arms from bikeworks. My old frame was subsequently sold to a guy on craigslist for just $5. Soon afterwards, a very nice maillard helicomatic/araya wheel jumped out of a dumpster at me. Even though the helicomatic is a strange hub, it is somewhat 'correct' for the peugeot px-10.
