http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/peugeot/51231 colourschemes mentioned there

http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=212975 snippets of info there

http://www.cyclespeugeot.com/Catalogs.html catalogues from the time

The catalogues include specs when you find the year with your model listed.

Hope that helps?
:D

Decals? That'd be one for the longer serving members of the site to answer!

I know of some places from when i was looking at Holdsworth stuff but not BMX. :?

ahh i see the Black lion is not a model on its own, more a cpx with a name..
so i am guessing 100,150 etc relates to the frame size?

went to the folks house to dig it out...
....only for the penny to slowly drop it that it never made it from a house move over 10 years ago,gutted :cry:
not to worry, i got my 1990 Tim Gould MTB.
I hoped on expecting to get up to all the old tricks, I used to be super glued to it.
Didnt even chance a wheelie
:lol:

Those old brochures are great :D

I've still got my Black Lion too. The bars and stem are suffering from some rust, but the rest of the bike is in fair condition. Is there a used market for these sorts of bike do you think?

I've kept it for 25 years, but I think it really needs to go now, I have finally run out of space for bikes!
