1979 Peugeot CPX-100

1979 Peugeot CPX-100

I some how ended up with it when I was a kid. When I got it, it was a dark red, no stickers or labels on it. It looked like it had been spray painted. A cable brake was added and the chain guard I-lets and coaster brake tab on the frame had been cut off. I never had much interest in the bike as I was always riding my Diamond Back Viper back in the day. It had been sitting in my moms garage for the last 15+ years. Someone told me a long time ago is was a Peugeot bike but I could never find anything about them online 10 years ago. My mom was cleaning out the garage and intended to send it to the recyclers but stopped and asked me about it. I decided to do a search again to see what I could find on it and I just happened to run across this website. I have restored it the best i could.

Re: 1979 Peugeot CPX-100

I have started stripping the fram and f/f to get it ready to be powder coated. I found that the neck and head are SR with a Tioga Handle bar.

Re: 1979 Peugeot CPX-100

More progress. I still need to get a new set of rims, brake levers, grips, and probably a new crank but it's about half way done.  It's not the proper decals for that year but until i get a proper set they will do.

Cool bike. Big fan of the unusual lesser known brands. Subscribing to your build. Weird welds on these though hu? A bit messy.

Re: 1979 Peugeot CPX-100

Yeah, some of the welds are definitely machine welds and others look like a high school kid did them on their first day in shop class. I thought about grinding them down but it's part of the way it was made so I left them.

Post some pictures of yours when you can. Would love to see how it looks. Would also like to see how the welds marks look on it.

Re: 1979 Peugeot CPX-100

Getting closer. I got the new crank, pedals and grips on. The stem is an SR stem that I had powder coated black. The handle bars are Tioga. the crank and pedals are generic.

Only thing left are the tires/rims, brake levers and cables and she is done.

Re: 1979 Peugeot CPX-100

It's finally finished. I finished it about 3 weeks ago but hadn't gotten around to taking pictures of it. I've riden it about 20 miles and it's great. I didn't realize it at the time, but it's about 2 inches longer than my DB Viper. Makes for a very smooth ride.

Looks great and everything seems to fit well; meaning you didn't go overboard with high-end parts when they wouldn't have been there originally. Do you have a parts list?

Also, what's the reason you have the break line fed through the gusset? Was it originally like that? I have to say I like that gusset cut-out and would want to show it off more wink

1-piece crank.
WINFIELD Pedals

NOS GT stem bolt and wedge
Dia-Compe 128 levers

Cool bike!  You should get some enamels and do up the dropouts to look like lion heads.

sweet bars btw

I can switch out your Boa bolts if you have the parts and don't want to do it yourself.  Hit me up.

Thanks. I will try and get some better pictures soon. I also got chain tensioners to protect the rear drop outs.

Re: 1979 Peugeot CPX-100

Is their a lion stamp on your SR stem? I got one a while back on a killer 80ish  MX-11 survivor and have not seen another. Cool build smile.

Cool! This might be my winter project - it's an 86 I think per the SN.

Re: 1979 Peugeot CPX-100

Hi Guys, I just join the forum, I was trying to do research on my old bmx bike frame and I had it since I was a kid but didn't buy it brand new, it's a CPX-100 and I think it's a 78' but not sure, because of the circle in the gussets and not the lion head, It also has CPX and SN stamped on the bottom of the sprocket hub. I'm going to restore it and I may chrome plate the frame, I just stripped it of the old spray paint, I would like to get any more info on this bike if anyone on here has to share? Thanks!!

I think yours is a 78. What's the serial number on the bottom?

Re: 1979 Peugeot CPX-100

Hi CPX guys, I'm finally getting back in to my project, and just got it chrome plated, and I'm fitting with 24" skyways, Hope you like, The fork tube will be cut to length, and I was toying around with landing gear letters removed from my big ripper, just temporary.
