Any Peugeot PX-10 specialists out there?


forgot to mention above -

be aware that the Etablissements Maurice Maillard plant in Incheville France ceased play in 1991

so small replacement parts have become rare/unavailable

enthusiasts often must resort to adaptation, fabrication and/or cannibalisation to complete needed repairs

Maillard products include the brand names of Atom, Normandy, Maillard, LAM, Prior, Porthor, etc.

Check the top of the slot(s) in the stem, that's where they crack.
If it hasn't yet, drill a hole (3/16" should do) at the top of the slot(s), then they won't crack.

The 440 pedals have a fragile outer cone - the threads come very close to the bearing race and bits of the cone can break off.
Other Atom pedals use the same cone, if this has happened look for a donor pedal (they are both RH thread at the cones).
I'm curious what the defining characteristic is with the '72 PX10 vs the P10 or PA10? Once the fancy Nervex lugs were dropped, they all look the same to me.

one helpful tool in understanding the differences between models are the catalogue archives

for Peugeot there are at least two of these which be extensive

materials are organized by year and by national origin

keep in mind that a Peugeot model bicycle produced for one market may differ from a bicycle of the same model produced for a different market

for example there are even differences between Canada market Peugeot cycles and those produced for U.S. distribution
