1986 Redline RL-20II

1986 Redline RL-20II

RL Osborn *inspired*

I picked up a bent, dented, & unfinished RL22 frame/fork set on Craigslist for cheap. Chip @ C4Labs restored and powdered the f/f similar to R.L. Osborn's infamous hazard yellow RL-20II. Since there are already exact replica's out there, I decided to change things up to my liking...

Here's a parts breakdown:
1986 Redline RL-20II F/F
Redline Forklifter handlebars
Redline Forklifter stem
Redline 401 Flight cranks w/Techmatic sealed bottom bracket
Redline 44t bubble font chainwheel (from Woody Itson himself!)
Redline RL-20II fork pegs
Redline replica Forklifter number plate
Hutch (original) beartrap pedals powdered black w/new cages
Tange MX-3 black & chrome headset
Gold SST Dirt Skirt
Grab-on grips
Dia Compe Nippon rear brake
Dia Compe Tech-77 levers
Dia Compe brake pads
Dia Compe dated brake cables 5-80
Elina Flyte Tech seat
Shimano DX gold seatpost
Suntour seatpost clamp
Front Sturmey Archer drum brake hub w/rear Suntour coaster both laced to Araya hoops
Peregrine HP-48s tires
Izumi chain

special thanks go to @vicsta for the pictures!
