1983 Redline MP 20

Redline's first true mini racer. A tiny tube bike that is super light. This has become my sons carpet queen. He rides a SE racing ripper everyday and keeps this one in his room.




I got this USA made frame and forks years ago for next to nothing from an old friend. It hung in the rafters for years before it was built up for my son.

He is really too big to ride the bike now so we restored it to what you see. All parts are NOS or like new and are pretty accurate for the time period.
This is what it looked like before the restore when it was his daily rider
