1977 Redline MX-II

1977 Redline MX-II

A replica of my first race bike.

Hate all you like.  I know the decals are wrong.  My bike BITD had 82 decals on it.  I didn't appreciate this bike when I was a kid.  I was an idiot.
When I took to restoring as a hobby, this bike kept creeping back into my mind, so I finally decided to build it.  Here it is.  Every part is exactly the same as it was when it showed up on my doorstep in 1982, except the grips and Haro lever which are NOS and weren't new when I got the bike BITD.  Special thanks to my friends silverhw, Charlie Brown, BMX_Addicts, Seansoclean, JS-44SDS and Jeff Haney for helping me out with parts for this build.

Re: 1977 Redline MX-II

I dig when dudes build a bike to rep tgeir old bikes. Badass. Cant go wrong with a '77 either way.


If you can't acknowledge my order & hard earned money spent on your goods, i can't help with your feedback
