1985 Redline PL-24

For Sale: 80's PL-24 Mostly NOS parts from 80's not repop (Purchased a Never assembled F/F)

Long overdue Update: Build was completed years ago, never updated a completed pic. Bike has been sitting in my parent's house since being built because I can't bring myself to ride it. Most items are NOS and nearly impossible to find: NOS PL-24 Frame/Forks (red aluminum dropout savers) NOS PL-24 80's Padset (neck, top tube, and crossbar) NOS Single Pinch Redline Crankset NOS Elina Lightning bolt seat NOS Red anodized MX 900 brakes, NOS 80's Redline PL-24 Decal set (a few original decals) Redline stamped early 80's survivor cruiser bars (were expensive and look awesome) Redline stamped 80's fluted seatpost (rechromed fluted seatpost) NOS Tioga 24" rainbow label Comp III tires NOS Araya 7x red anodized (shinyside) 24" rims with sunshine high flange hubs. Refurbished 80's Suntour XC II bear trap pedals (look amazing) etc. For Sale: $5000 OBO   

I just stumbled across my dreambike.  I picked up a mint condition mid 80's Redline PL-24 frame and forks.  Both are brand new, never assembled and in the rafters for 25 years or so.  The original stickers were taken off, except for the Proline PL-24 sticker on the top tube.  All of the residue from the glue is still there.  The owner said they didn't even remember taking them off.
Updated with new decals.
Long overdue Update: Build was completed years ago, never updated a completed pic.  Most items are NOS: Frame, Forks, Padset, Cranks, headset, seat, brakes, etc.

Re: 1985 Redline PL-24

I think Jason's right.  If that's the original sticker, it would be 85-86.  83-84 used the black and grey stickers (where the PL-24 designation was on the seat tube, not the top tube), and 87-88 didn't come in chrome as far as I know.  I miss my PL24 to this day.  Worst part is, I have no recollection of ever getting rid of it.  I think my rents mighta cleaned out the garage while I was in Japan.

Thanks Blkout, i need to get off of my a$$ and update the museum photos.  BTW - my bike in 83 was a DB formula one.  Your silver streak brought back some memories.  Lots of DBs in my neighborhood.  That white one was yours right?  That bike is pristine...
