1983 Redline PL-24

I wanted to recreate my old `83 PL24 i raced from `83 to `84, I picked up this frame and fork and the drop outs were great but it had some dings and pretty bad chrome.
I also have wanted to do a bike in candy red, so here was my chance to build a PL 24 and do a candy red bike all at the same time.
The number 4 on the zeronine plate was my old aba mi-5 district number back in the day.
F/F -1983 Redline PL24. with nos decal set (not reproduction (thanks wbasulto!)
STEM- Redline brute.
BARS- CW cruiser. with new AME waffle Grips.
WHEELSET- Araya 7x chrome / Phil Wood hubs / s.s spokes / anno red nipples.
CRANKS,DISC,CHAINRING & BOLTS- All Sugino. with Tioga beartrap style bottom bracket.
PEDALS - Suntour xc1.
HEADSET- Hatta with BS dirtskirt.
BRAKES - DIACOMPE 901'S with Shimano DX brake levers.
SEAT / CLAMP - ACS Stoker seat /post with DC 2 piece clamp.
PADSET - Reproduction (thanks Cappy227!)
PAINT/POLISHING - Candy red over  silver metallic base,done by Jared @ psycho customs
edit- sold!!  feb 2012.

Love it.  Nice XC-1 pedals!  don't see those to often.  Looks like i will be a great riding bike with the phil hubs, one piece crank and the CW bars.  Perfect!


Always interested in Suntour XCII and XCI sets that need restored.

Re: 1983 Redline PL-24

I raced one of these in chrome bitd. Great frame until I broke the forks and couldn't find any replacements for that long headtube. I ran a DK inverted stem on mine.
