1977 Redline MX-II

Stu Thompson's 1977 Redline MXII

A Redline collector sold me this frame about 4 months ago. It belonged to Stu Thompson... Through the restoration, I have a lot of members to thank for the parts I could get, it is appreciated. I started by giving the frame a 2 day CLR bath. I then polished it with Blue Magic chrome polish and Charmin blue tp (if you have never tried this secret... do it). Next I started to find the parts needed for this build. The cranks are original, never mounted or used Super Maxy red ano. the pedals are NOS VP. The stem is polished Redline Brute. Forks are year correct Redline's. The bars are Redline V's. The seat is Velo, mounted to an original never mounted Race Inc. Red ano post. The brakes are MX 1000. The grips are AME. The rims are Sumo red ano with KT Red ano hubs. This build took 3 months and was alot of fun. Again thanks to all who gratiously sold me the parts needed, you know who you are.

Thanks.... the polishing took weeks.....

The cranks are dead mint... Iceman sold them to me... I might exchange te cranks out and take it up to Black Mountain BMX track and put her where she needs to be... on the track.

Re: 1977 Redline MX-II

The frame was purchased directly from Stu... the seller sent me this info:

"I purchased this 1977 Redline MX2 Frame from Stu Thompsen a few years back-

at Gonzo's Vintage BMX Show & BBQ at Elysian Park."
