1999 Redline John Purse Signature 24

Brought Back from the dead....RETRO STYLE!
my first restore project.  finally got it all "tweaked " the way i really like it.
i wanted a  "rider" cruiser & picked up this f/f, cranks w/b.b super cheap.
The chrome peeling and flakeing on the f/f , so off to the powder coater we went.
Sunday 24 "umph" bars powdered white with the f/f.
proline cranks, sealed b.b  and chainring.
Sdg seat, redline post.
Primo seat clamp, primo magnisium pedals & primo stem.
Skyway tuffs w/ cheng shin skinwall comp 3's.
Porkchop flite pads, kmc, chain, Ame grips.
Tektro v brake rear and Acs Boa front brake w/ tektro levers.
1980 Redline proline reproduction decal set.
***and thanks to museum member "wired" for the seat tube decals.***

Re: 1999 Redline John Purse Signature 24

Now I'm going to look like I copied you.hmm
This is almost exactly what I have been planning to do with mine for a long time.
Just got my frame back from powder and ordered the same decals!
I've had the black Tuff's laying around. Waiting for the rest of my parts to arrive and I saw this bike. Pretty much the same build I have planned.
At least I can see how it is going to look now. I like your taste, nice bike!cool

Here it is so far. Still changing stuff up, gonna change the seat to red and change a few other parts. Decided to go with more red instead of black.
