Bought this at a yard sale when I was out of town this past spring. It had sat in a barn for however long and was covered in layers of bird poop. The roof fell in during the winter and they were selling everything out of it, got the bike and a free brownie for $4, cost me another $1.50 for a Mtndew to wash the brownie down. The wheels were missing, bars were bent, brake levers broke, seat broke, but the chrome Redline sticker still looked good under all the poop! Took it home and spent the better part of 2 days cleaning and polishing it, wife thought is was a pos when I brought it home, all the stickers are still fairly good. Striped it down to the frame and re-built it over a couple months. Put a new seat on it, a set of RL wheels, new brake levers, cables and pads, and a set of Mosh bars I got at a yard sale that were spray bombed green I had to strip. Kinda fun to dink around on.
