1983 Redline 600a

*SOLD*

Bought it on Craig's List and quickly began to fix her up. It has the Original forks, bars, back brake, seat clamp, handlebar stem, Ukai rims and headset. Other stuff include ACS Stoker pedals, SR one piece CrMo crank, and unknown seat post. Looking to restore.

Yea, I've put a lot of time and money into it already, but if the right price comes along who knows.

Re: 1983 Redline 600a

From the Redline serial number post... It's an '83... believe me... I've done my research. And look at th date on the bottem of the picture.

By Serial Number
Early USA made bikes may have had a code like this:
RA = 81 Then run number is 5 digits.
RB = 82
RC = 83  etc...

**However bikes in the museum throw that formula in the trash** (I will leave it up for now. The second letter may mean something, but its not the formula people have been saying.

RA 04320 - 1982 Redline MX (Made in Japan, Redline Hotdog stamp)
RB XXXXX - 1982 Redline MX-II
RB 01382 - 1984 Redline 102b (May possibly be a 82 or 83) (Redline Hotdog stamp)
RB 01693 - 1982 Proline II (has No gusset behind seat, CS bridge)
RC 01878 - Unknown Year, (maybe 600a) MX-II or III (Redline Oval stamp)
RC 06430 - 1984 Redline 600b
RC 07870 - 1984 Redline MX III (ST-20), (has gusset behind seat, Redline Oval stamp)
RC 07631 - 1984 Redline 600b (Redline Oval stamp)
RC 09325 - 1984 Redline Proline (Redline Oval stamp, CS bridge)
RC 09858 - Unknown Year, Redline Proline (has NO gusset behind seat, Redline Oval stamp, CS bridge)
RC 13645 - 1984 Redline 700p
RE 00533 - 1985 Redline 800p
RH 00726 - 1983 Redline 600a (Redline Oval stamp, NO CS bridge)
RH 07118 - 1983 Redline 600a
RH 00250 - Unknown Year, Redline 102b
RI 0394X - Unknown Year, Redline MX-II or III (claims top tube is 17" but they only came in @18 and 18 3/4)
RI 05788 - Unknown Year, Redline MX-II or III
RJ 00829 - Unknown Year, Model
RJ 02630 - Unknown Year, Model
RJ 03295 - Unknown Year, Model
RJ 05818 - 1980 MX-III (MX-III was a MX II frameset sold as a complete bike that came from Japan)

Well isnt that interesting. The SN on my MX-III is 360706. No hot dog logo. My 84 PL-20 SN is RD 000714 with hot dog stamp. What does it all mean? I know my 3 is a US built beauty. Check it out its my only posted bike I have and had it since my childhood. Lemme know I'm interested in feedback. Redline 4 EVER!
