1985 Redline RL-20II

1985 Redline RL-20II

R.L. Osborn TRIBUTE bike

My dream bike as a kid, and as an adult.

I will update the pictures as this build gets completed. I will be building this up as a TRIBUTE bike, and not a REPLICA. I will stay true to a number of RL's trademark nuances but add some of my own flair as well.

Re: 1985 Redline RL-20II

the tribute idea is way cooler than the replica theme,I wonder why no one ever tributes his 87 red general.,which was so cool!

Re: 1985 Redline RL-20II

Nice!


I get this question often so here it is to save everyone time. I do not have any Mongoose DMC decals left. I was lucky enough to find a small bunch of NOS decal sets in an old bike shop that no longer exists and I have since sold them all. Sorry. I wish you all the best of luck with your DMC builds.

Triumvirate, Thats a real nice RL20II.  I also like tribute bikes rather then replicas.  I'm building a Cali Red RL20 that's a tribute bike to Todd Anderson's.

polanco, VintageBMX member, Raul, is building an 87 red General RL Osborn tribute bike.  He has it almost complete.
