1998 Redline FS 880 

Custom Made Retro RL-20 II Pro Styler By Lee - (1niceharo)


1998 FS-880 (Retro Redline RL-20 II Pro Styler - R.L. Osborn Tribute). Started as a Near NOS Chrome FS-880 and ended up with what ya see here a Custom Made, Retro Style Redline RL-20 II. The stem is an FSA Downhill stem that has been shaved and filled to resemble a Redline Forklifter stem. The handlebars are Hoffman Low Rise that have had the logo shaved and number plate tabs added. Dust caps added to the chrome Redline Pro Line 175mm cranks to make them look older instead of those hideous bolts Redline gives you. Black (MKS Grafight-X Style) Designed KHE Germany pedals. Black Peregrine seat. The White Tuff Wheel IIs are original old school versions with a freewheel metal (aluminum alloy) hub. These were a mess and when cleaned, came out like new. The original Dia Compe Tech 77 levers were cleaned up and polished. Custom made (eww2new) 1/18 peregrine seat clamp decal. Custom made (eww2new) Redline RL-20 II decal set for this as well. Custom made Redline Forklifter Number Plate to resemble RL's. Pretty much what ya see is what ya get.  By Lee - (1niceHaro).  Thank you so much Lee for making this one and having it come out as nice as it did. Feel free to ask questions?
