88 redlines

is it just me or is it the 88+ redline models are harder to find?

Re: 88 redlines

Seems so.  Don't know why.  I've got a red '88 in my "bikes", though.

Re: 88 redlines

I put in a WTB ad a little while back for an '88 800pxl thinking it was a long-shot.   Someone stepped up with a survivor frame like a day later, couldn't believe it.  I probably paid double but whatever, I was psyched.  Still need to find forks and to build it up though.  I'll post a pic of the frame when I get home from work.

Re: 88 redlines

I am really mostly into bmx bikes from the late 70s up to 1985 (personal nostalgic preference) but I certainly couldnt pass this up when I found it locally (same with an 88 Haro Invert that Ive got)

"My Bikes" are mostly still in the project phase.  I will update and add photos as the builds progress.  Thanks.

Re: 88 redlines

You wrote, 88+ Redlines, so here's my '90 1000 (formerly RL-20B).  BY FAR, my most comfortable rider.  Since this pic, I've swapped out the seat and seatpost (layback for even MORE room from the 20.5" top tube!).  Here it is in My Bikes:

Here's a catalog shot from 89 I believe.  Not a whole lot of innovation going on at Redline at the time.

I NEED: 1986-88 Chrome ELF Pro Frame/Fork
I NEED: 24" Blue UKAI Speedline hoop or wheel--single or pair
I NEED: White Vinyl REDLINE Top Tube Pad--old, snap style in very good condition

Re: 88 redlines

Here is my wife on her '90 700. She saw Rad, and said she wanted to try that, but I only had race frames. She hasn't got the bar spin down yet. big_smile I'd trade it for a RL20 wink

Re: 88 redlines

The bikes are pushing out of our house!  Ask my wife!    Mainly all in one spare bedroom, is where they are at.
