1987 Redline RL-20b

87 RL 20B

I always wanted to do a red redline... F/F from redline RL20B originally chrome had it all powdered. Picked up everything else piece by piece, mags off another bike, new tires, grips and brakes. me and jayoldmanbmx winged it on the sticker pack but I think it turned out good.
 
now you all know that I keep my socks in my top left drawer so remind me because I forget often.
 
check the 2 yellow lines i put above the rear brake. jay thinks they're brutal, but I think they're a boss play!

the 20b was late 80's and i believe the two five as early 90's...but they are the same frame, just check out the serial number

Re: 1987 Redline RL-20b

just put em on and luckily they came out straight. i guess you can use soapy water to put em on so theyre adjustable then you squeegee the water out. they should just make all downtube stickers with a 2 piece backing, split right down the middle so you can take one side off, and line up the middle with the tube, then take off the other side. simple solution but no sticker pack ive seen does it they all have a 1pc backing

No, the RL-20B had an ovalized down tube, and the RL Two-Five had a normal round tube. The RL-20B also had tapered Redline forks with Pegs.  The RL Two-Five had standard straight forks.
