Is this legit? This is the second one he’s listed in as many weeks. Not saying it’s fake, because I really don’t know.....but it certainly doesn’t look like a difficult piece to make.

Re: Fake Rl seat clamp??

These were something linn kastan made recently. supposedly they are made from old leftover stem parts. The sad thing is that almost every single one I have seen for sale leaves that part out of the limited description and lists them as "old school", "vintage" or "70s" and these shady sellers don't even disclose this after being questioned about it. They always seem to have a very short description with limited information and a ridiculously high price tag. Red Line never made a seat clamp using stem clamps. These never existed until now.


Red Line is two words...

Well, that answers it.
