1985 Redline Prostyler
100% Survivor Radberry * Since Sold*
Bought this bike off of eBay in July 2012. It was orginally purchased for a sponsored skateboarder after he had broken his ankle because his parents were tired of him hurting himself. After he got his cast off he rode this bike for about 2 weeks and then put it up in his garage, where it hung until the day he took it down to ship it to me. As you can see in the before picture, this bike was extremely dirty but had a lot of potential. I took this bike down and hand cleaned it piece by piece, bolt by bolt, bearing by bearing. The Masters had 27 year old brake grime on them, which took me 8+ hour of wetsanding to get back to perfect. I've put a lot of time and effort into getting this bike to where it is, and I really love this bike because of it.
Here's a link to the build thread I made on this bike: http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=429323
I realize that a lot of people would prefer to keep this bike 100% stock, but I feel like my light twist on a stock appearance does a lot for the bike.
