1980 Redline MX-II

The Bike I always dreamed of.

My first build & the reason I started collecting BMX bikes. I started this in 2005 and used my credit card and the internet to encourage people to ship lots of cool BMX parts to my front door. lol. Anyway, I finally finished this little guy in early 2007. Enjoy. "It all started with a (white) Redline". It is not forsale.

Dude! This bike is amazing. You've created a serious museum show piece and I just had to add it as my first favorite bike on the BMX Museum.

Re: 1980 Redline MX-II

Wow great build, Cannot think or anything I would change.  I have a red MXII sitting in my shop.  Really want to build a blue on like my son's 2nd BMX Racer, was going to repowder the Red but it is way too nice original.  So I am waiting to find an equally nice blue one.  Again Congradulations very nice build.
