Northridge or Chatsworth?

Anybody know if 1976 Redline Squarebacks were made in Northridge or Chatsworth? I have both sets of decals but don't know which is correct?

Re: Northridge or Chatsworth?

According to my uncle who owned a '74 Squareback says that he got his Redline at a bike intro on their factory lot in Chatsworth in '76. He says his buddy won his bike through a raffle. Does it say Built or made in Northridge Ca, USA, or Just Redline Northridge Ca?. Perhaps because of demand Redline sub'd out welding?. Be nice to see a pic. Either way pretty cool.

Chatsworth and northridge are right next to each other. Both cities but up to each other in the San Fernando valley.


I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Re: Northridge or Chatsworth?

My 76 had a Northridge headtube decal and a Chatsworth decal on the forks. Found in OG/survivor condition.
