Name: Christopher Wesley Hometown: Ewing, New Jersey, USA Started riding BMX in: 1978 Number of bikes in the collection: 24
Do you remember the moment that you decided to start collecting BMX memorabilia? Christopher Wesley: I do remember. In 2015, I was searching the internet and I came across a website for photos of restored BMX bikes. I had no idea that was a thing.
Is the focus on ''Odd' Bikes for you? Christopher Wesley: Collecting odd bikes has been a focus lately. My focus has been on coaster brake builds from the '70s. I enjoy them because anything goes. I can take a set of cranks from a Schwinn Varsity, a seat and sissy bar from a 1966 Huffy muscle bike, and install them on a 1976 CYC Stormer MX frame. It all fits perfectly. The odd parts that I find happen to be part of the era and I discover them from my searches. I enjoy collecting rare records as well as old stereo equipment and speakers so the oddness factor has carried over to bikes.
Let's show the CPX you have. Maybe someone can identify it?
