2006 Custom Built Phaze 1 24

2006 Custom Built Phaze 1 24

What do you do when you can't score a 24" CW Phaze 1 from the 1980s? Build a better, stronger one.

This is a custom-built replica of an 80's CW Phaze 1 24" cruiser. Only a few dozen of the original bikes are known to have existed, and only a handful remain with collectors. . .seems the welds at the "Z" were deadly prone to cracking.
So, four of these were built in 2006 in response. They're based on a Revcore 24" frame, Revcore being CW's sister corp BITD. With modern tubing and welds, this bike is touted as quite a bit stronger than the original. That's not to say I'm planning on any double-jumps with it!
Who built it? I honestly don't know. I've been in contact with a few folks who DO know, but they say the welder, now the owner of a well-known BMX mfg., prefers to remain anonymous...out of the spotlight of potential requests for more custom frames. S'ok by me, I don't need to know!
As this is modern-built at the core, I figured there was a bit of leeway in regards to components. She has 1st gen Bullseye cranks and a Pete's Precision chainring with NOS Shimano SX pedals...a gold Dirt Skirt under her 1" Beartrap headset, which is topped with a Tange lock nut. The stem is a custom, engraved "OS BMX 2004." Those are genuine CW cruiser bars under the black powder, tipped with A'Me bubble-font grips. The seat post is a gold SR Laprade, propping up a NOS Kashimax MX saddle and secured with a Suntour seat clamp. A Lee Chi set of gold brakes, dressed up with decals and washers to appear as a set of MX-1000s, locks up the Rainbow Comp III-clad 24" Tuff Wheels. Modern Profile chain tensioners keep it all tight.
Dig the custom-made CW Phaze 1 decals, in honor of the bike's origins.
Sold to a nice fella in Los Angeles...

Bad 2 the bone!!!  Love the paint.  Had no idea CW ever made a z-frame cruiser BITD.  Very nice custom.

Hey Deacon, those are NOS Rainbow Comp IIIs. Will replace them with some Maxxis riders.

Thanks Army - not sure! I'm pretty well booked up the next two months (work is good!)...I want to get to the track, too. If we meet up for a boardwalk ride, we'll get some sick location shots, too.
