1985 CW Racing California FreeStyle

Double coaster tabs. Early production frame, possibly an 84.

This is my second calendar build off bike. This bike was done In Memory of stash84, Stan Putnam. We lost our Brother in February of this year. This was the most recent frame I got my hands on, and he was excited about it for me being a nos frame. The only nos frame I've ever had.
Early March I decided this would be built in his memory. Stan was a one of a kind guy. 100%, like we used to say. He sold me 3 of his bikes in the time I knew him. Those will remain in my collection always. Very rare of a man he was. I am honored to have had him in my life, if even for just a short time. Great guy who I will never forget, and I miss him. Especially when I ride one of his bikes. 
    
Later in the year my dad passed away. Wow, couldn't believe it. More hard times. Then in August we lost my youngest daughter's mother. We were no longer together, but still remained good friends and a lot like family. So I had to make them a part of this memorial build. The orange awareness ribbon and yellow Zia symbol are for them.
Hope you like it. I know it is no catalog build but I am very pleased how it came out.
Thank you.
P.S. : Last pic is most recent and 2nd to last pic is how I was going to enter it, then made last minute changes.
