CW Racing

Roger Worsham started Coast Wheels bikes in 1979, in Yorba Linda, California, making BMX bikes branded with “Coast Wheels” and later switching branding to CW Racing in 1980. The brand survived until 1988, when it switched to Revcore after an investment from Hutch BMX. Roger insisted “CW” stood for “Custom Work” and not the name of the Coast Wheels which he simultaneously owned. CW Racing was very successful making BMX bicycles and BMX racing. CW Racing mountain bikes are quite rare and mostly unknown to the BMX community. As with many BMX manufacturers, stretching brands across low margin Taiwanese MTB imports did not prove profitable and about half of BMX brands abandoned the experiment before the end of the 80's.

SunTour MounTech GTL (1982-83) front & rear derailleurs, Shimano FC-B124 Crankset (1986-88). Hub brakes front and rear. Unicrown fork. Original owner claims 1984 purchase - but the paint scheme matches CS Racing's 1986 BMX bikes. The vintage rear derailleurs speak to an earlier build date, however.
