Re: 1984 Redline 500a

Thanks, Mate. Glad you like it.
The reason I bought the bike a number of years ago, other than it being an early 80's Redline, was that it was in reasonably good condition overall, and had most of it's original parts with the exception of a number of replacement/damaged/missing parts. I wanted a survivor bike that was close to spec that would clean up nicely and not cost too much buying the remaining parts needed to finish it off.
All I had to do was strip the parts off the bike, give the frame/forks and parts a good clean, and reassemble with new grease. Then it was a matter of waiting for the spec correct parts I needed (in the condition I wanted) coming up for sale. I chose parts that were NOS or in VGC so that they would lift the condition of the bike as much as possible, but not stand out too obviously as new. I tried to make the bike look as if it was all original and had just had a good clean and new tires put on it. I also wanted it to be fully functional and capable of being ridden.
Thanks go out to all those guys on BMX Museum, EBay, & OZBMX that helped me to finish off these two bikes.
Best of luck with your 500a build.
