Dear Readers,
Sorry for another post but I forgot to mention that the brakes say Apse on them. I don't know if thats important but thanks for your help. Tell me what you think about the red and yellow idea.

My Z2000 all so has a freewheel that reads Dicta and if I do deside to restore I was thinking about going with original yellow and red add ons.

My Z2000 all so has a pair of the original feet platforms that are flat and bolt on to the fork arms. Also it has a pair of pedals I don't know about. They don't have any written logos on them but they have a four leaf clover split in four pieces inside a circle for an emblum.

The pedals are made by Wellgo. They make pedals for lots and lots of other bike companies and they sell pedals with their own logo on them as well.

AGE / VALUE:FreeStyle Z2000. Need info. on the company FreeStyle posted by: Casey on 4/14/2002 at 2:21:50 AM
Dear readers,
I have an oldschool bmx that I can not find any information about. The brand is Free Style and that is exactly how its writin on the bike. This perticular bike is a Z2000 model. I know this from the decals but I can not find any other markings on it except for the CW one piece crank that reads CW19** like a serial number. I have not been able to find any info on this bike however I have seen one like it on an old school flatland competion clip off the internet. If anyone has any info on this company or bike please contact me.

Not sure Casey, but I have a "Free Style" too, it's stickered as a "Ram III" model. Headbadge sticker reads "Magna" "Made in Taiwan ROC". It doesn't seem to be anything spectacular... though I have been wrong before.

It may be a CW freestyle bike. I know that CW/Revcore used to have names on their bikes like Z2000 though I can't say for sure if they ever made one with that particular name. I could probably tell you what it is if I saw a picture of it. Try this site: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/cwracing
It's got all kinds of pictures and info about CW bikes. See if your bike is there.

AGE / VALUE:Nishiki BMX (Pre-Redline?) posted by: Steven on 4/13/2002 at 8:03:44 PM
I have a Nishiki BMX frame from the late 70's. I was working in a high-end shop at the time and the shop owner brought 3 frames in as a novelty. Two were sold at $275 each and the third just seemed to hang around for ever. In 1981, it was given to me as a bonus at the end of the summer. I built it up with Gold-anodized Shimano Tourney hubs, cranks, rear brake, Shimano DX pedals, Araya rims, alloy seat post, stem and bars. I used it to race for one season before putting it away. The frame is full chro-moly with gussets and was originally only sold as a frame (they never sold fully built bikes). The serial number is WJ000212. I have been assured that this frame was built in the same factory and by the same people who later built the Japanese Redline frames. Can anybody tell me anything about the bike, the supposed Redline link and its possible value?

Does it have a small notch where the little piece is wellded th the down tube and head tube? I totally remember them our local bike shop got them in with the new 81 Redlines but they were complete Nishikis email me

MISC:early 80's freestyler make/model unknown posted by: Ade on 4/7/2002 at 10:00:26 PM
Hi, I got given a bmx in '85 after ridin it into the ground it has sat in my mums garage for 8 years. i've recently got it back but would like to restore it.. problem, i've no ides what it is! I have been told in the past it is quite rare, possibly a cw, and that it had been imported from usa, i live in uk.
It has a very long wheelbase, about 1 1/2 metres, has a chrome finish with reynolds 501 tubing. it has quite a unique standing rack(by what ive seen!)it is parralell to the crossbar and each tube is bent at 90 degree angle behind the seat, connecting to rear fork, creating a rack about a foot long. it is also very short from bracket to saddle post, about 5 inch's. the only markings it had when i bought it was a "U.S confederate" Flag (dont know if original or what?). I know a picture would be helpful but afraid i dont have one! if this beatiful frame sounds familiar to anyone maybe you could mail me and we could discuss it further, many thanks to anyone who can help,

   RE:FOR SALE:   SCHWINN CHICAGO SUBURBAN SERIAL#MG082614 posted by Steven on 4/13/2002 at 8:28:03 PM
The second bike that you list is a Peugeot brand bicycle, probably a 10 speed. All the other markings that you gave do not help identify the exact model. Atax is a brand of stem (the part that fits inside the fork steerer tube and grasps the handlebars) and is inconsequential as it can easily be replaced. Atax was never used on the higher quality models from Peugeot, so you are probably looking at a low-end model. The Guidon Philippe is the brand of the handlebars (Guidon is the French translation for Handlebars), they made bars of all levels, but the ones you have are likely alloy, whihc more than likely places the bike in the 80's. The tires are meaningless as they wear out and get replaced. To identify the bike more accurately, you should post a note on the lightweight discussion area further identifying the following parts: Brand of the brakes (look on the calipers or brake levers) brand of the pedal arms (chainset), Brand of the hubs, brand of the rims (also whether they are made of chromed steel or alloy and their width) and total weight of the bike.
