2008 Redline Proline 24

My return-to-racing after 30 years Redline cruiser.

After building my MX-24, I had a ton of cast-off parts and needed a place to hang them. The MX-24 wound up as something too nice and not appropriate for track use so I still wanted something to get back out there. Enter this frame, fork and stem purchased on the Museum.

One pending change will be to swap the GT stem for a 55mm Redline Hollowpoint. Then I think I'll leave it alone for a while and just have at it on the track.

Re: 2008 Redline Proline 24

Just jumping in to mark the occasion. After a 30 year hiatus and two unexpected surgeries on my left leg this Spring for skin cancer, I officially returned to racing tonight. big_smile

I ran 46-50 Cruiser and an open Old Fellas race, both of which were full gates, and was just glad to keep it right side up all five laps. I really need to build endurance more than anything. It seemed so effortless way back when...tongue

Back at it Saturday for a DK Cup race and maybe Sunday for a State Qualifier race. I must be nuts. lol
