1986 Redline RL-20II
March 86 Freestylin' magazine tribute build
I set out to build another Cali red RL20-II after selling my 87 last year. I wanted to do this build like the March 86 Freestylin’ magazine test bike. This was a four month project and I am very happy with the way it turned out. • 1986 six digit numerical serial number Redline frame, forklifter bars and Redline stem. C4 did the powder coat, new chrome on the forks. Rear triangle is original chrome • NOS Redline pegs • NOS Oakley B2 grips • NOS Elina Flyte Tech seat • NOS MKS Grafight 2000 pedals • NOS KMC chain • Dia Compe late 85 tech 5 wire locking levers and allen bolt Nippon calipers • Redline fluted seat post • Suntour broken arrow seat clamp • Redline 43t bubble font sprocket and full wrap single pinch arms • Redline Techmatic bottom bracket • Super nice set of original Peregrine master mags • Kenda K-55 tires for now until I can find a set of original Panaracer tires • New Redline number plate and Freestylin’ magazine decals to match the 86 test article bike. My local decal guy scanned my original decal and made these for me.
