1986 Redline RL-20a

REDLINE RL-20A
  My New Rider..........

1986 TEAL REDLINE RL-20a, custom build.  While on the never ending hunt for parts, I saw this frame and fork set and she was to pretty to pass up, and the same color as my RL-20ii as a kid, so I figured it was the next best thing in the mean time, and would be a good build to prepare me for when I do find my old childhood ride.  Turns out its a small world and the person I got it from is also a member here, thanks HOKESONE.  After a few months of searching the Museum and E-Bay, all the pieces to this puzzle were finally in my hands and now it's finally time to get them all together.  I've been going back and forth on the tire color, I might decide to go with a black pair of  S/T's down the road.  Originally I had planned to use a set of teal NOS Peregrine Masters, but wanted to do something a little different then everyone else's RL-20's & and put my own spin on it and went with a hard to find black pair instead. Even though I plan to make this bike my new every day rider this will also be the first of 12 bikes that will be showcased here at the museum as a part of the "Spector Collection" which will consist of my 12 exotic vintage & retro BMX works of art!!!

Parts list are as follows:
•FRAME & FORK~~~~~1986 Redline RL-20a original paint and decals -----Thanks HOKESONE•BARS~~~~Redline Forklifter Race bars•STEM~~~~Black Forklifter Race Stem
•CRANKS~~~~Redline 175mm Flight•SPROCKET~~~~~Redline 43 Tooth "Bubble Font"•CHAIN~~~~~~~White Izumi •PEDALS~~~~~~Suntour XC-II•SEAT~~~~~White Dominator Re-pop•POST~~~~~ALUM 4130 •CLAMP~~~~~~Suntour Broken Arrow•PADS~~~~~~Original Redline Pads•BRAKES~~~~~Original 880's with turquoise font•LEVERS~~~~~~ TECH 6 (dated 86)•GRIPS~~~~~~~New Am'e Unitrons•TIRES~~~~~~White NOS Comp 3's•WHEELS~~~~~RARE Black Peregrine Masters

Re: 1986 Redline RL-20a

I have that same seatpost, it was on my RL-20II, I don't recall where I got it from it may have been from my RL-20a.  Do you know if that seatpost is stock  to this bike?    I know that Haro's had a similar if not he same post.   Mine has an ANLUN stamp.  I also have a new Redline fluted and used Redline straight....one of these probably are from the RL-20a I just dont know which.

Re: 1986 Redline RL-20a

I made a few tweaks on her recently... Switched out the white Dominator for a black on black Trick Top, that little extra kush helps.  Also replace the brake pads with black Dia-Compe pads to keep the mags clean and free of brake rub. Looks a lot better now, I think the grips will be the next change....

Re: 1986 Redline RL-20a

Ok, I've finally got the right set of tires on this badgirl, and a gotta say....WOW what a difference!  Traded up the vintage rubber for some sweet new kicks straight from Japan!  I really gotta say, the white tires didn't give this bike justice, looks 100 times better now, feels like a new ride, stoked!  Just need to swap out the grips next I think....
