Yeah totally with the old (best) graphics and colors.   A new RL-20II with all the bells and whistles of a modern bike and no corners cut in the tubing quality like they did with the RL-640...in other words a top of the top-of-the line.   I would imagine they would want $2k for it if they would do it.


WTB Bully stem.
WTB Peregrine Super Pros, not pitted.
WTB Kuwahara freestyle stem engraved.

Any Mongoose 1995 and back. Or just about anything old school that was popular that had a 18" top tube, remade with a 20"/21" top tube.

#1 = Race Inc if done correctly (i.e. similar to my 2011 PK Ripper) would make me cheese.

#2 = JMC Black Shadow, man I wanted one baaaad as a kid.

#3 = A proper go at a Hutch Pro Racer with a loop tail on it too.

#4 = National Pro



These could join my modern TA, CW and PK and I would be a 6 pack happy camper.
