1999 Redline FS 880

Heaviest bike i have ever owned!

The chrome on this is amazing with a damn near nos frame and NOS forks. Has been retroed as a tribute to the  radberry 85 colour scheme, and decals are custom by me as a tribute to my favorite year, 1988.

Re: 1999 Redline FS 880

Just ordered the dye. Its called pink and violet. It is a few shades lighter than radberry so im hoping that with extra dye and a longer dyeing time i will be able to acheive a colour that is very close to radberry. Fingers crossed

Re: 1999 Redline FS 880

I have two really cool members here trying to get me qoutes to print my decals for me. Also looking to put Shad4130's stanton meth bars on this when they get made. Just ordered the sst oryg detangler system thanks to alexanderrw for help figuring out exactly what i need.

Here is a question for everyone. Do i paint the chainwheel radberry and crank arms black or leave it as is?

Re: 1999 Redline FS 880

Just picked up the dye from the post office. Not sure if i need the salt with this dye as the directions dont call for it. Getting directions from thread found here: http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=30620

Hopefully it works. Going this weekend to the hardware stores to find a bucket big enough to fit the rims in and big enough to fit both in at same time so that colour is consistent!

Re: 1999 Redline FS 880

Got some diamondback bars to go on cause i wanna ride sometime this summer

http://i1358.photobucket.com/albums/q768/Immortal1975/D6260688-D0FB-4A17-83A0-331514EA899C-23410-000020B8D66D9B19_zpsc57f4453.jpg

And i custom made a freestyle plate to go on the bars. This is just a printed version of what the plate will look like finished. Looks killer!

Back to your black issue on the decals, did you use a rich black?

To be honest bro, im not sure what they used. It was printed full colour on a textured vinyl. I really think that these decals need to be made on a gerber to get that glossy clean look that a good decal set needs. Waiting to hear back from del cal on a qoute to see if he can get what i am looking for. Wondering, if Allan (ajk) uses a gerber??

Re: 1999 Redline FS 880

I did this with first gen Pro Styler decals, it turned out great. It is super heavy to ride, but I have ridden it at the skatepark, BMX track and pumptrack. It certainly carves around fine : )

More pics of it- http://www.vintageredline.com/?p=27

Best of luck, it is a fun build.
