1998 Redline RL 240
I built this bike for my 10 y.o. daughter. It did elicit a small smile....
It was time to do my 10 y.o daughter right and hook her up a proper BMX bike. Something chrome and cool, easy on the eyes and easy to ride-a â€œmotivatorâ€ for a kid who is not that keen on the sporting life.
I found the frame-forks-cranks-stem and bars from cowlitzfan here on the museum, the frameset was practically unblemished and it was a great deal. A perfect starting point. I just happened to have a set of redline wheels hanging in the vault. The rest I picked up from my favorite online bargain hut. The cranks needed a makeover, so I stipped and polished the anno chainring and gave the crankarms a fresh coat of paint. I left off the front brake and gyro for simplicity.
Iâ€™m very happy with the finished product, it rides great and the mid-school geometry is kind to even to olâ€™ chippyâ€¦.I can see myself â€œborrowingâ€ this bike every once and a while!
