1983 Redline 600a

Mostly original, excellent survivor.

Still has the "Made in Japan" sticker on the downtube by the bottom bracket. Unreal.
Riding notes: Haven't ridden this real hard (and probably won't), but the only really bad thing for an adult rider is that the handlebars are tiny. Smaller than even my Schwinn Scrambler bars, and with a pretty strong sweep-back. Makes the whole bike seem really small and cramped. I'm 5'7" and with bigger bars and a layback it would probably be fine (or just a seat that can be adjusted back farther since IMO Redline's don't look good with laybacks).
See bigger detail shots in first post below.

8-10-09 Updated Pics, now has NOS Cheng Shin tires (not correct but close, see above), and a red homemade pad set leftover from my youth that I never used back then!
