I know for Cardinal , the manufacterer ordered an extra shipment accidentally and wouldnt pay for their error , and no one bought it , so they went out of business. Not sure about Capitol but thteir P40 frame seemed neat , lots of threads about it

Capitol bikes still exists. They just stopped producing aftermarket bmx frames. They still make mtb, and road stuff. If you wanted you could probably still get a bmx frame custom made, although I wouldn't advise it. They royally fucked up my brothers custom dirt jump frame.
