1978 Redline Proline

Classic '70s race bike

I purchased this frame new from the bike shop when I was a kid. The original Proline forks cracked and were discarded. The forks on this bike are Wald off an old pedicab. I painted and stickered them just for looks. I decided to build this up old school as I came across these tuff 1’s with Bendix coaster brake and Carlisle knobbys. Large uncut Redline V bars, MCS 6 bolt stem, Tange headset, Sugino Super Maxy cranks and KKT pedals. Fluted seat post, Mesenger seat, unknown SPC and Chainring is polished steel beauty I picked off a rusty old 70s cruiser.

This bike really rides nice with this setup, but I forgot how heavy those tuff 1s were! Now this bike is all 70's except for the grips. I’d like to put some alloys back on one day maybe some bullseye hubs but this is nice and different for now.
