1976 Redline Squareback 16

Squareback pit waiting to be built

I got this bike by accident answering a CL ad for another bike smile lucky accident. The decals are original except I think the headtube decal is different than what came stock. I hit it with some Blue Magic and it shines like new money. Can't wait to build this one up!

Re: 1976 Redline Squareback 16

Ok heres the (short) story. Keep in mind I wasn’t really into collecting bikes or knew much history outside of my own 83 GT childhood bike I was rebuilding for fun. I called on a CL ad that said “old redline frame† without a pic. The guy said it was really really old but didn’t know the model number or anything, it just says redline. Due to work I wasn’t that far from him so I figured what the heck. I met him in a Walmart parking lot and he pulled out a 75/76 squareback. I’m not sure what it is but it looks cool and he wasn’t asking much so I said I would take it. As I am throwing the frame in the trunk he pulls out this pit frame with some old blue 16inch tuffs and asks if Im interested in that one to. I told him no thanks, I wasn’t into pit bikes, but he said he was basically throwing it in with the deal since I drove out to meet him. For the extra bucks I figured the tuffs might be worth it so I threw that one in the trunk to big_smile I had buyers remorse all the way home till I looked it up that evening and realized what I had. Lucky accident!

pit SN 2912

The only year they made the 16" was 76 not 75, the 20" is a 76 as well, the 75 had the smaller gusset without the holes.


That was a great score, not many come across a deal like that, I'd love to have the pit myself.

They edited the title since I posted this, it was listed as a 75, kinda made more sense then.
