1986 CW Racing California FreeStyle
86 California Freestyle, Late 85 serial though these were not cataloged til 1986
Greetings Fellow Members. This is my third "Calendar Build Off" Entry. This one for is for the 2020 calendar.
Props and much Respect to All who entered!
Awesome line up, and Killer Builds Everyone!
Had this bike for about 5yrs or so. Came with most of the parts you see, and I believe are original to the bike. When I got it I put tires and cleaned it up, rode a few times, but then it just got set inside with the intend of redoing it some day.
I recently found the California Designs Rotor and knew I had to finally rebuild this bike. Not having one for the up coming build off it just happen to fall into place. Now apparently, CWs did not have rotors these years, but I tend to like for all my freestyle bikes to have some kind of a detangler set up.
Super excited about this bike, and I am really happy and satisfied with the final results. Hope you guys see it as an awesome example of a California Freestyle, like I do. Thanks for your views, and hope you like it.
