1982 Peugeot CPX-100

Stunning 1981 to 1982 french edition of the Peugeot CPX-100 with super rare zero-rake moto forks! Survivor with 100% original decals and paint.

Lucky find from french ebay. This appears to be 1982-ish, somewhat rare french/euro edition of the Peugeot CPX-100. The distinctive difference is the zero-rake motocross styled forks.
The bike arrived in what was once a cardboard box, fully wrapped with plastic and packing tape so that it would hold. It was a small miracle the contents weren't damaged although the rear drop outs were punched thru.
I bought this as a complete bike for about a hundred which was very fair because the bike turned out to be in excellent survivor condition and i had been more or less been looking for an old CPX like this for some time. All i basically had to do was to take everything apart, clean everything up and put it back together and ajdust to my liking. So everything from each individually polished spoke to building the wheels, down to every single ball bearing was carefully cleaned and reassembled. Sounds straight forward, which it is, but takes time.
The original Cheng Shin knobby tires were pretty badly rotted so i replaced them with the IRC tires. The 165mm cranks felt too short and i upgraded them with rare and nice quality 175mm Stronglight cr-mo one piece cranks. The paint job and the original stickers are well preserved with just a few odd scratches. There was absolutely no rust except some spots on the rims which cleaned up easily.
The forks is what sets this bike apart from the more common CPX-100's. The moto styled forks have zero offset and heavy duty drop outs and the fork tubes have just a slight rake. The bike rides great, feels solid and the steering is very responsive.

This is the common factor among a lot of the bikes that I love.  This is just a fantastic example of the results you get when you do it right. 

Nice photography as well.  It shows your effort on the bike.

Re: 1982 Peugeot CPX-100

Are you sure this is a 1977? I have owned 3 different versions of this bike(I still own z). It was my understanding the first version was single gusset with round hole, second version was double gusset with round holes, and third version was double gusset with the lions head. I currently still own the first and third versions. Love. How nice you cleaned that one up! With owning 3 of them I have never had a set of forks like yours.

Re: 1982 Peugeot CPX-100

No, i am not sure at all this is '77.
If anyone knows how to decipher the serial, let me know because i am pretty sure the answer lies right there if only i knew how to read it. I think the forks and the rear drop outs is what sets this bike apart from the US-sold Peugeots.
Thanks!

Re: 1982 Peugeot CPX-100

Darn nice find you got there Timo, I remember that ebay listing...
The "rare zero offset forks" was in fact the standard forks for us french kids

I don't think the serial numbers mean anything. As for putting a year on it, I'd say more likely 79-80 from memory...
