I think it's the best Proline I have ever seen. It's simply perfect.

Re: 1982 Redline PL-20

Hi. Sensational Bike. I have one almost identical apart from it sitting under the hose for the last 28 years.
Im trying to determine the model, on the frame decal it has MXII in small text.
1 pc cranks - so Im going with 1981 MXII 600 model?
Im using yours as a reference point for quality on the restore.

Re: 1982 Redline PL-20

I think that bike is better than the original. It would've rolled out of the shop with a red seat, stem and pedals.
Congratulations, don't knock it over!
