Cool. Looks like a Redline 880 or 860.

What's the point of having a bike if you're not going to ride it?

Re: franken-twin tube

here goes... its an 880 from what I understand

its definity a tank already with the S&M parts but likely to strip it of the rattlecan and try and do a RL-20II

its got all the green parts I had on hand... and whats wrong with the chainwheel?! lol

couldnt find any lime green ODIs so went with black and a gold KMC chain

pics of this later... I swear! lol

Re: franken-twin tube

The crazy thing is that as beefy as it is the 880's were full cro-mo. The 860 was tri-moly.

I bought a set of stickers from Evilbay and had the down tube blown up by a local print shop. The down tube sticker cost like $15 and the ebay set was like $20. The custom stickers are not perfect and a little thin. You have to watch color changes behind them. 

Get them from Gary if he has what you need! I wish I would have done mine green/chrome now!

Re: franken-twin tube

Looks great...better than it did sitting in my van. Also I found a box with the RL wheels and RL stamped lay back post that came off this bike. Hit me up if you want to look at them.
