This PX10 was used by me as a touring bike in 1976 (not used since then, stored
inside). The seat tube is 23.5 inches, and the top tube is 23 inches. It has a
Blackburn carrier, three chain rings with a Campagnolo derailleur on the front
and a Suntour V-GT rear deraileur. The deraileurs are in fine shape and
very capably shifted the 11 gears out of the 15 that I
set it up to use. Has top quality bar end shifters, the best I could find at
the time. It
was a wonderful touring bike. When I bought it, the frame was checked for
straightness by the top frame builder in Minneapolis and stayed that way
because I never crashed it.
Wheels are ordinary alloy 27" clincher rims. Tires
have most of their tread remaining, but they are old
tires, so I don't know about the effects of aging.
Saddle is the Ideale from France, very comfotable for a leather saddle.
At the time I weighed 125 (now 140), so I
didn't imprint the saddle like a heavier rider would
I'm 5'9" and the bike is set up to fit me, and might be fine for somebody
taller since I am long-limbed.
Things missing. No chain, no rear cluster, and no skewer for the rear quick
release hub. The outer two chain rings
should be replaced before you take a long trip (for best performance, you
should count on replacing the drive
chain's wear components - chain, rings, and cluster).
You might be able to keep the inner, smallest chain
ring. I replaced all the crank bearing parts with new
ones when I built up the bike for my trip 30 years
The bolt-on bike lock that is visible in some
of the photos is not included and will be removed.
There are over a dozen digital photos that were taken a
couple years ago with a then-current digital camera. A
neighbor of mine has a latest-and-greatest digital
camera that I could perhaps borrow if you want
additional photos of particular parts of the frame.
If you are
interested, I can send you more digital photos. After that, if you have further
questions but are serious about the bike, I could hold the frame on my lap and
go over it inch by inch with you
on the phone. Or if you have a friend in
Olympia who can do that, I'm happy to have them come
here and talk to you on the phone about what they see. I am located approx 10
miles from the Olympia airport.
For further infomation, call (360) 264-2198 or leave a message.
this is in or around Olympia / Tenino
