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 1â€™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. Iâ€™d like to put some alloys back on one day maybe some bullseye hubs but this is nice and different for now.
