The Red Menace...the name proudly derived from where it was built.
This Chrome frame and fork are #02 of 50 frame and forks that were produced...(#100-150). 100 completes were also built with blue anodized components (001-100). Anyway...Chrome f/f with the usual Brooks black leather seat, chrome fluted seat post, seat clamp is the remnants of an older double clamp stem...possible mongoose, polished rear brakes are dia-compe long arms ( just barley grab), fronts are chrome d/c MX 900's, polished d/c Tech 3 levers with chrome cables, pro-class hoops with polished suntour sealed hubs, black araya nips, 26' Diamond Back tires...yes with dirt on them (rode up to Porter Ranch last night to see if the neighborhood still smells like methane...it does), SR ultra lite cranks, Suntour crown 44t chrome sprocket, polished Tuff Neck power disc, chrome KKT pedals, sugino bolts, black Hatta headset...the stem...my sister met a guy who stopped over my house and after looking in my garage, and a few beers told me his dad was one of the original welders for Redline back in the day... naturally I asked if he had any pieces, or remnants from him...he said "I think I have the base of a stem....and he brought it to me a few days later!...the top of the stem is an unknown pieces from another double clamp stem...like the seat clamp!, handle bars are chrome big ol' Genuine 818 bars, Tange grips...and I usually adorn this one with a full set of California Lite anodized checkered black and chrome pads....and a lil' chrome bell to be safe
