I purchased a CPX-100 in sixth grade from Town & Country Cyclery in Northville, Michigan. This would have been spring 1980 if memory serves me coorect. It had a black frame and all gold anodized accesories/parts including cranks, sprockets, rims and spokes and handle bars along with gold lettering and gold on black padding. One speed.

I distinctly recall it being about the same weight but more manueverable than my frinds Mongooses (Mongeese?) and Redlines. Something about the gearing on the one speed and the crank length made it have better tan average acceleration. A lot of BMX back then had tiny frames to clear the longer cranks. Which made them somewhat unstable as the center of gravity was higher. The CPX-100 just felt right. The blend between sprocket ratio, crank length, center of gravity and seating position made it perfect for racing, and jumps focused on length, height and duration. It was not the bike for stunt jumping, but it was clearly the class of the field in my circle of friends when it came to racing around the couple tracks in the area. Fast and very stable.

The only draw back were the head set stripped too easily and was replaced several times as were the real wheel asjustment nuts. I finally and reluctantly moved to a chrome Mongoose head. I really wnated to keep it original but $40 for head sets was a weeks wages on the paper route.
I think I paid around $135 to $145 for mine in 1980.

Hello, I just picked up a Peugeout BMX code CPX3HXXX on the bottom bracket that was originally black. I'm trying to figure out what year it is. The "3" between the letter might indicate 1983 or CPX 350 model, but I'm not sure? Does anyone have one with a similar code on the bottom bracket that knows what model/year it is?

Any help is much appreciated,
RP

I bought a CPX 100 in early 1979 in Bethel CT USA, there were two models at the bike shop: CPX 100 and CPX 500, the 100 was about $100 so I went for that, I put Skyway Tuff's on it and started racing for the 79 season, the frame cracked by the seat post after a few months so I got a Mongoos frame and fork set.
