1975 Redline Squareback 16

1975 Redline 16" Squareback - sold it

According to an interview with Linn Kastan, this is one of only 150 he built. I am currently trying to gather era correct parts to build it they way someone would have back then.

One of the hardest things to find is 16" coaster brake rims.  I actually have a set of sew-ups that came with it, but I cannot find any tires to use.  It is ashame too, they were really trick for the day, quick release campy hub on the front and everything.
I have a set of Redline V bars, but no neck yet.

This is a killer bike! I might have a lead on some old 16" all black scwinn scrambler looking tires. Don't know condition, I know they are nos but that means nothing. I would guess that they are very close to era correct, mid to late 70's. I will do some more searching! I can also get 16" araya 7x's and ukai's in silver, but they aren't era correct and are $100 a pair(hoops only).

Re: 1975 Redline Squareback 16

I have my first BMX bike and it is the 16inch redline made in 75. My dad purchased it one day when my brother Donovan and I were out of state touring the nationals.

my daughter, who's 8, learned how to ride on this bike. It won me at least 2 nationals over the 8 years of racing.

ive heard as well that only 150 were made, the only alterations is a replacement rim, my teenaged brother jumped it and flatened the alloy... and the seat isnt original. other than that I believe its all authentic.

thanks,

In '79 I was 8yrs old when I started to race bmx.  I loved my pk ,  but I always wanted a  square back.  Never got one,  still want one.  I hope you post an end result when you finish. Awesome job bro.....
