1980 CW Racing 26

Classy brassy pub cruiser

I scored the F&F on Ebay and thankfully had some help from another member getting it to Australia. I believe it's 1980 (maybe 1981?) and not many were made with this finish so I feel incredibly lucky to have it. It had a bit of surface rust, but after a light polish it came up nice. Built it up with some of my favorite parts from the 80's. Builds come and go for me, but this one will stay for good.
