1985 Redline PL-24

Original chrome & decal cruiser

This is my entry in the Open class for the 2015 Spring Build-Off here on the site. I bought this F/F off another member here to replace the earlier model I had. Even though I liked having an earlier model, I prefer an original finish frameset. Besides, you really don't see too many of these later models around. I thought it would be cool to have something a little different. Now that I have it finished, I'm really glad I did go with this one. The chrome frame look fantastic IMO.
