1981 Redline Proline II

My "Grail" I sold my original for car insurance in '85. Regretted ever since. With this build, I have no regrets...

 

Finally!!!

Been a member since Valentines Day 2012. Can't believe how addicted I have become to BMX again as well as this site.

I started out looking for the f/f and parts that I had in the early 80's on my '81 Redline Proline II. I have found almost everything that I had back then and more! In addition to trying to acquire my "Grail" I have also grabbed enough parts from the awesome members of this site that I have made two riders for my two young sons as well as enough parts to make two completes: this one to be my grail ('81 Redline Proline II) that will be what you guys call a "carpet queen" and another that will be a really nice rider ('85 Redline 500a dressed up to look like an '80 Redline MX II).

 

I bought the f/f from another member here and had those as well as the Redline 401 Flight's rechromed.  This along with mostly NOS and show mounted or lightly used parts has culminated in what you guys see here.

 

I can't stop looking at it...really happy with the result.
