1983 Redline 600a series three

scrap steel turned curb candy.

came across this frame in a scrapyard..the rear dropouts were what caught the eye.after some lifting with a pole we removed it from under what looked like a big furnace.

and it turned out to be pretty abused . the forks were cut above the headtube.leaving just the stem tube and  bottom part of the stem pin , sadly this meant having to use another 1" threaded set we had laying around..still trying to free up the original forks..maybe weld a new dropout where the junkyard removed the other one.

found the freestyle bars from a Ross piranha in the same scrapyard..crazy luck on this build..all the parts aside from rims and tires and grips were scavenged.found the stem im running currently on a GT frame we had breifly..working to restore condition of original pedals.various other small stuff will be changing. a work in constant progress.
