2008 Redline Proline 24

My return-to-racing after 30 years Redline cruiser.

After building my MX-24, I had a ton of cast-off parts and needed a place to hang them. The MX-24 wound up as something too nice and not appropriate for track use so I still wanted something to get back out there. Enter this frame, fork and stem purchased on the Museum.

This would be the perfect track beater! Here's the build.

I got it bolted together on Thursday, 4/2/15 and had it out at the track's first practice of the season that Saturday. Nice to be back at it! 

Back after three decades!

One pending change will be to swap the GT stem for a 55mm Redline Hollowpoint. Then I think I'll leave it alone for a while and just have at it on the track.
