1976 Redline Squareback

True pioneer of BMX. The copper frame is ingenuity at its best. Nothing like riding a purity. The Redline Squareback is one of a kind.

Redline was born when two guys with a common interest in welding and motorcycles began making frames and swingarms. With a 6-person staff, they named the company Redline and began producing lightweight, high quality motorcycle frames for flattrack, TT, speedway or motocross

Redline begins the very first production of BMX frames known as the ‘75 Squareback - due to its angled rear stays. The front end was very short and featured a small wedge gussett. Bike shop owner Rick Twomey and his team give Redline valuable input on the frame design

Redline’s first Proline is created; utilizing a 5 inch head- tube and thin rear dropouts. Byron Friday races it down Weinart Mountain, one of the gnarliest downhills in BMX history. It survives.

The Redline Team of Stu, Greg, Dain, Ruminer, Clinton and others hit the road in the custom Redline motorhome. If only that motorhome could talk.
