1986 RWC

Old school, Made in Austria.

"RWC" stands for "Radwerke St. Christophen, Tresnak & Co.", an Austrian company founded in 1949. In the early 1950's, motorcycle manufacturing in Austria consisted of the brands Puch, RWC, Delta Gnom and Lohner, in addition to a few other smaller companies. I have seen many RWC city bikes but not a bmx - this is the only RWC-made bmx bike I know of. It has a pretty heavy looptail frame which comes with with superb chrome Weinmann rims (w/Weco hubs) and CW-style race bars. It has Landar MX calipers with Tech 3 style levers and a Landar seat post. The original grips, seat and pedals were spoiled, so I fitted a pair of NOS Landar grips (to match the brakes and seat post), some double-cage, chrome race pedals and an old Kashimax seat, which I had laying around. They look good with the yellow Kenda tyres (OG fat/thin combo, a little faded and dry but they still hold air fine and are rideable). I think the Raleigh stem pad also suits the bike quite well. First RWC in the museum!
