 :4_17_5: ....came out nice, knew it would. Can't wait to see what this'll turn out like. Love a Peugeot me, just saved an older road bike, stood in the rain for years, and all it needed was a little air and 2 drops of oil ....quality :smitten:
....this also could look good with dem forks..... :whistle:

Nice find !
I have a Cpx301 & I am currently re-building a Cpx401, nice frames and they were good for racing back in the day.

From what I can gather these frame sets were made by AKISU and I'm pretty sure the one I have was a CPX 501.

Couple of pics of the progress so far and it's not for the purists.

Unfortunately the forks were forked so I picked up these LG copies and I think they look alright and it pushed me more towards doing the bike as it might have ended up in the late 80's, early 90's.

Very nice, rod. Like the blackies a lot on that, proper thrasher that looks like - would maybe have picked other bars (...hm..), but they're ok. Really liked the other forks (the akisus), but the 'lg's work well. - mjam  :)

Cheers Flo, it was unfortunate about the forks I was a bit pissed off about that and I agree about the bars but they are the og bars, they sort of grow on you.

Done a wee bit more but still a work in progress.

Been looking for the right pads, really wanted to go used and found a used set of checkerboard cal lites on the BMXmuseum, the fella was to come back to me with postage waited for a couple of days, no reply, looked at the listing and the fooker had sold them to someone else.     :bellend:

This looks exactly like a Peugeot cpx 351 , the cw bars , oval tube forks and oval section downtube are all identical to my 351 . Mine also has the same pedals . Does the sticker on the seat tube say that its a UK market bike made in Taiwan ? I will try to put up a picture of mine , if not its on the bmxmuseum gallery with owner name hoodygoodwood .
