1974 Redline Squareback

1974 Redline Squareback

136th Red-Line made

This bike looked rough when I got it but it cleaned up nicely and still retains its original nickel finish and has not been drilled. This is a very early Nov/Dec 74 built frame and fork (136th built) The bars were custom made back around 75 and I made the pad the way we did back in the day with foam tubing and electrical tape. The stem is a Webco modified Ashtabula. The wheels are .125ths spoke Kin-Lin’s with Aggressor MX tires. I used a Schwinn diamond crank and sprocket with Schwinn pedals, bottom bracket and headset.

That's Awesome Ken! I'm a huge Redline fan but I never knew of Squarebacks until I got back into bikes. So thanks for keeping the pre-1980 Redline flame burning bright.

Re: 1974 Redline Squareback

I regret the day I sold my square back in 1985!  That is a very nice piece of history you have there.

The double clamp stems came out in 77, the first gen (proto type) came out in mid/late 76 but those are extremely rare.

Re: 1974 Redline Squareback

Did you buy this as a complete? I'm asking because the way you worded it, it sounds like you may have changed out the cranks.

Re: 1974 Redline Squareback

The bike wasn't complete when I got it, it was basically just a frame and fork. Sorry, I should have worded that a little better

Re: 1974 Redline Squareback

If you told me the stem was the rarest piece on the bike, I would believe you. A really cool bike.

Re: 1974 Redline Squareback

Can you let me know the number posted on the bottom of the frame.  I have had the same bike for 30 years and can not understand the numbering.

Thanx
