1986 Redline Prostyler

1986 Redline Prostyler

1986 RL20 ProStyler Turquoise survivor, original owner

I bought this bike on April 25th, 1986 for the total price of $513.55 on the invoice which I still have to this day. Basically this bike has been in storage since the fall of 1990, which is the last time I took it out to ride. This bike is exactly the way it was when I bought it, it still has the original brake pads installed. I never changed anything on it other than putting a couple of decals on the seat and post. The drilled out dice on the valve caps done by my dad.All the Dia-Compe pieces are 80's date matched and colour coded turquoise along with the pad set. I hope everyone enjoys the photos and reminds them of great memories of days long ago.

This bike does bring back some great memories.  A friend had the exact same bike in the same color BITD.  Seeing yours 100% complete is like seeing his when he first got it.

A great decision to store it for all those years! How did you keep it so well preserved! Wish I'd kept mine tucked away!
