Shop: Rosko/Coast

HFL, Positions -



There’s a tiny garage in the heart of Brooklyn’s Bushwick, the last building on a dead end street, that houses the builders Johnny Coast and Seth Rosko. While Coast focuses on creating perfect braze-welded steel bicycles by hand to order, Rosko is a touch more crazy. He wrenches on vintage race bikes ranging from standard beaters to ultra-rare Dunstall Nortons, builds parts for those race bikes like hand-rolled megaphones for ex-works Hondas and chambers to spec, is the 2009 and 2010 FIM 50cc N.A. Supervintage Champion, 2010 250 GP N.A. Champion, etc., etc. Since that’s obviously not enough for a day’s work, he also builds bicycles, plus he helps build some of the best skate parks in New York like Greenpoint’s Autumn Bowl and the C-squat ramp. Damned over-achievers.

    Damn. If they had a bar and was in my neighborhood, I’d be there 5 days a week.

    Hey should combine his two talents/businesses and make custom mopeds!

    I’m also digging that Aladdin Sane race jacket.

    What really amazes me is how these shops can produce enough income to support the owners. Is this their only source of income, or do they do this as a hobby that sometimes brings in some money?

    Also, love the illustrations on the tool peg wall and cabinets. I’ll be stealing that idea.

    Seth makes amazing bikes. Excellent welder. I get dibs on his beer.
