www.vintagebmx.com go there.

that frame wasn't a good idea then and it's still not a good idea. what's the point of it? to look different? if memory serves me correctly, and I'm sure it does, those frames cracked faster then normal CW frames.....

they are collectors items, that's about it.

Current bikes are made to much higher standards than the bikes from the mid-80's. It's like bikes then were given a bunch of little gadgets to make them look cool, instead of actually perform better and be stronger. Weight was ALWAYS priority one, even when the bike was made for freestyle instead of bmx.

A cool collectors piece for sure, but no 990's, not the best design, underbuilt where it matters, and a silly Z in the frame for looks, but no performance enhancement.

CW was definitely part of the game and it's a fun frame. I would be psyched if I was collecting stuff like that. But, not if I was looking for a serious frame to ride. It just doesn't cut it.
