1998 Redline RL 640

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


Here's an Amazing Looking 1998 Redline RL-640 (Retro Redline RL-20 II Pro Styler). Started as a NOS Chrome RL-640 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 Redline Freestyle Forklifter Bars. 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 2000 pedals. White Elina Flyte Tech seat. The Lavender Peregrine Master Graphite Composite wheels are original old school versions with a freewheel hub. These were a mess and when cleaned, came out like new. The Dia-Compe brakes were cleaned up and hand 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. Again pretty much what ya see is what ya get.  Custom Made By Lee - (1niceHaro).  Thank you so much Lee for making another one of these and having it come out as nice as it did. Feel free to ask questions?

Re: 1998 Redline RL 640

Lee really did build some beautiful bikes. It was a sad day when he decided to quit the hobby.


What I’m selling: https://bmxmuseum.com/forsale/search?user=2547

What I want/need:
Black&Pink A'ME unitron or Oakley B1B; Black Elina Flytetech seat (2)

I'm a notoriously slow shipper. Please have patience. You WILL get what you pay for. Thank you.
