Dymag Wheels are Back Dymag Ferrari wheel 635x423

Once thought for dead, Dymag wheels are again be available for motorcycle enthusiasts, as the brand has been bought by CSA International Ltd. Resuming production in the United Kingdom, Dymag finds life again after going into administration in 2009. A maker of racing wheels since the 1970′s, Dymag made the first 3-spoke magnesium racing wheel, which helped propel Eddie Lawson to claim the AMA Superbike Championships in 1981 and 1982 & MotoGP World Championship in 1984.

Talking about the rekindled brand, Chairman of CSA International Limited Chris Shelley said, “Dymag is a legendary brand respected by racing and bike enthusiasts across the globe for design and performance excellence. We are currently investing heavily in new production processes and equipment to modernise the manufacturing process and shorten delivery lead times.”

“Dymag’s strength has always been its racing pedigree and innovative designs,” continued Shelley. “We possess the most comprehensive collection of designs for motorcycles dating back over 4 decades. Our mission is to fuse the passion and innovation of this iconic brand with 21st century production and customer services.”

Currently available are the Classic H3 (17″ & 18″), Superbike SB5 17″, and Road Racing TT3 (hollow 3-spoke) magnesium wheels, along with a 5-spoke carbon motorcycle wheel. In an effort to tell the nearly 40-years story of Dymag, CSA is looking for racing enthusiasts who have any stories and memories to track the history of Dymag.

    Good news. Let’s hope the new owners maintain the high standard.

    Any word on the purchase price for Dymag? I imagine its confidential. I think Stellican’s purchase of Indian is also still secret. IIRC, Bimota was purchased out of receivership for around $3.5mil several years ago. If only Moto Morini could have been saved……

    If there is enough initial capitalization, there can be a strong business argument for purchasing a bankrupt company with brand recognition rather than trying to start an equally competent product without the brand awareness.
