1976 Redline Squareback

1976 Redline Squareback

76 done with nickle plated bars and double clamp stem!

Drilled brakebridge that makes me cry! Northridge decals needed on the forks and frame! Springer saddle and nickle plated Redline bars! Redline pads but need the correct old script frame pad! Cheng Shengs and red Huntwild grips.Ahtabula 1 piece cranks with union pedals. Red fluted seat post and tuffneck seat clamp. I was lucky to get the f/f a couple of years back and it took quite a while to get the rest of the stuff. My favourite thing about this bike is that I ride it around where I live and I look like a big circus bear on the bike!

Re: 1976 Redline Squareback

Definitely a sweet Squareback! Funny though... Lying down like that, looks like the rider got shot or something, then somehow bled on the chain only. Afterwards the killer took the pedals.

A CSI Squareback! Ha! Nice bike G-Flash! tongue


A "Squonk" is like a Mongoose only much harder to find...

Nice Squareback, I have the Northridge fork decals if you still need them.


I'm looking for a clean 1975 Mongoose (long) frame, and a nice original finish Mongoose Two/Four

Re: 1976 Redline Squareback

Beautiful Squareback!!!

Now for my critique: the red spider and chain are a little off...this was from the time when color weighed too much! smile

Otherwise, especially the Ashy cranks, I love it.

LOL! Funny! I could see it now, kid was coming home after school and some crazy out of work BMXer needed pedals and shot homeboy on the bike. Took the pedals, and now what you see here is the police photos!

AWESOME REDLINE BY THE WAY!
