I have a great deal of facts about these bikes as I grew up in the town where they were manufactured and right now have one, except mine has a different gusset.IT is identical to the Diamond Back Centurion the frame.

The Cobra thats like a Diamond back would be either a Team Cobra or a Pro Cobra.
They where made from Cromo tubing and where good bikes.
The Frames with the round hole in the front gussets came in 2 models, the Cobra and the Cobra 2.
The Cobra was a direct knockoff of Mongoose bikes and was named accordingly it came with a back pedal/coaster brake heavy duty wheel set or Tuff wheel 2 set with coaster brakes Where as the Cobra 2 was a Freewheel model with cable lugs welded on the toptube of the frame.
Cobra also did a Cobra MXIII which was a total Knockoff of a redline MXII.
No idea if they where exported to the states but that was a bit of info for you.

I had a 1980 or 1981 Black Cobra BMX bike with gold rims. This bike was very cool looking back in the day. I was in to BMX a little, but when I seen this bike in a shop it was just awesome looking. I have yet to find one anywhere on line with the same gold rims. Does anyone remember this style? I ended up selling the bike for 100.00 4 years after I originally purchased it in 1984.
