same here, wish I had my old CW. That's a nice one to have from your childhood. That ESP stem could set you back $700 though.

Apparently I broke the upper clamp last time I rode the bike. That was in like 1991. We were jumping doubles that were about 20 feet apart. Overshot that landing and face planted myself. And did that damage. Never rode the bike again after that. Got into cruisers so I just put the quadangle away

Yeah I drooled on it already.i would take that stem to a good machine shop and have it repaired and then repolish it.it will be cheaper,if you even found a replacement.a good shop can repair that properly and you wont be able to tell after refinishing. Just my two cents.

From what I’ve heard, the guy that made the ESP goosenecks apparently is making them again. A friend told me he is on Facebook, but I’ve not searched yet. Who knows, maybe he would whittle me out a top clam I’ll have to do some searching tonight if I’ve got time

I can honestly say I never knew one kid that rode a bike to HS. HS then was 10th, 11th and 12th.

We had a bunch of kids who rode bicycles to high school. I’m my group of friends there were 10 of us who rode every day. Rain or shine we rode, because we didn’t want to ride the bus

The company has a Facebook page. I contacted them, but no reply yet. Guess I’ll just take it to a machine shop and see if they can fix it for me. Otherwise it becomes a desk ornament

I guess it all depends on where you were. I know in Detroit in the late 50's early 60's guys had ditched their bikes by the 9th grade and were doing anything they could to earn a few bucks to get that first car at sixteen.

I went to high school in the late ‘80’s. Graduated in 1989. Very few of us here in So Calif. had cars while in high school. That and the bmx culture here was crazy popular. There was a bmx track at a local park and our local Schwinn shop did a lot of freestyle shows as that was on the rise.

I actually had a car. Truck. 1954 Chevy short bed. But it didn’t run yet, and I didn’t get my license until my last year of high school. So bikes were how we got around everywhere. And we rode dawn till dusk and later back then

You are my sons age, he graduated HS in 89. We lived in So.Cal from 86/92 in Coto De Coza. I remember him being more attracted to girls and cars than bikes at the time.

Good eye turbobret, they are Bullseye hubs.

It’s been a while since I ran the serial number on it, but I’m thinking it was 1983-84 when I checked it

We were them pesky nerds in hs, Girls didn’t want much to do with us back then, and none of us could afford to buy/fix the cars. So bikes and bmx is where we landed

I’ll let y’all know if I decide to put it up for sale. It’s not really my style any longer, as I’m more interested in deluxe prewar bikes now. I’m currently working on a prewar Shelby built Gambles Hiawatha, and next in line is an oddball bike that my dad owned.
