Picked up an old Redline this week.

How is this for a survivor? I have already stripped it down and begun a survivor build. Had a call from a guy the other day and he mentioned he had an old Redline, here it is.

I'm glad to see this what you meant by "stripped it down and begun a survivor build". Looks great.

I cannot believe that is the same bike. Keep the update going strong.

Re: Picked up an old Redline this week.

Very nice.

Seat clamp, I think should be a Suntour broken arrow.  This was going to be my first Redline in fact its what got my dad to go to the bike store based on the low price in the ad....once there I did a bait and switch and walked out with a 600b.   Would have maybe gotten the Carrera II, but they had none in stock. wink


Question:  I've seen this done by so many and I just don't get it.....why on earth would you put mint rims on cement with no tires?   I see this done with frames as well.....it boggles my mind since you are unquestionable scratching the once pristine finish. hmm

Re: Picked up an old Redline this week.

Yeah, why are you riding that bike without tires?

Answer: I have to disagree with this mainly because metal is harder than concrete if your just carefully setting it down and not dragging it your not going to scratch it. I seriously doubt the guy does this nice of work only to carelessly drag the bike around on concrete with no tires. I set parts down on the ground and cement all the time with no damage, especially chrome, its a very hard surface.

Aluminum even anodized, is soft, and will get scratched by cement.  You cant even rub polished aluminum with your finger without scratching it.   Chrome will scratch on cement too. Paint is a no brainer.  In fact even some  dry cloths will leave fine scratches in chrome.  Does not take dragging around, put it down and you will get some scratches, small, but you will get some marks.
