1980 Redline MX-III

Built this for my wife...

..but I'll ride it plenty.


I bought this as a partial from Spaceman - thanks Rob. The frame, fork, headset, Brute stem, seat post, and Elina seat were all og. I had it built with gold components including an appropriate Suzue hf/Ukai shiny side wheelset that was og to another MX bitd, but I've since changed it to what I had originally envisioned for this f/f.

Parts breakdown:

*1980 Japan-made MX-III frame/fork, og paint/decals, serial RJ
*OG Redline Brute stem
*OG headset
*Redline oval-stamped Pro v-bars
*Oury grips
*Sunshine HF front/LF rear/Araya 7b wheelset
*Takagi 175 opc/spider/44T chainring
*Tange bb
*Izumi nickel chain
*Cycle Pro spc
*Redline 500b Velo saddle
*Strong chromoly seat post
*Dia Compe Tech 3 lever/unstamped cable/cable clamps
*Shimano Tourney caliper
*Cheng Shin 1.75 black wall Compe 3 tires

These old MXs make for very nice riders. Very stout and robust with nice geometry. This bike weighs a shade over 23# and is currently my main bike when my wife isn't riding it :)
