1982 Redline MX-III

Rockford 2008 2nd place 80s Race Bike

This is my actual childhood race bike. I sold this bike to a friend of mine to gather enough money for my first car. I regreted selling it so I asked him to sell it back to me and he declined. Bugged him for 20 years and finally I got it back for the same price I sold it for in 1987.....$200.00! I kept this bike so clean you could eat off it. My friend did not take as good of care of it and it needed to be restored.  This is my finished restore.  The component details are as follows:
