What Race Inc Frame Do I Have?

Hey all, I'm new around here.  I've recently spent quite a bit of time browsing through forums to try and identify a bike I bought when I was a kid and have owned for about 30 years now.  I got the bike used from a local bike shop.  I remember that I was planning to get a different bike, but the guy helping me was so pumped about the "BMX Racing" bike he just got in that he talked me into getting it.  I was only about 8 or 9 at the time, so the bike was a little big for me and I wasn't planning to race or anything like that, so I had him throw on a kick stand and a chain guard.  I remember him acting like I insulted his mother when I asked him if I could get those on the bike, hahaha.  I think I had just watched RAD, that movie, or something because I was pumped to be getting a BMX bike.

So, I've had this thing all these years and have never really known what it was.  It's mostly sat in a garage for the last 20+ years.  I started talking to a co-worker recently about BMX bikes and got an itch to finally figure out what I have.  Based on the information I've been able to glean from forums, it is likely a 80-82 Race Inc. frame.  It has an RM serial number (RM34718), so I'm guessing it is an RM1 or RM2?  I haven't seen a mention of any other model with an RM serial number, but hey, I'm a noob, so I could be way off.

In case you're curious, it looks like I've got an assortment of other parts.  Shimano pedals, GT grips, GT Tires, Haro (I think) handle bars, Tuf-Neck... uh neck thing that connects the handle bars (sorry, I really don't know my bike lingo and I haven't been researching anything but the frame), Tuf-Neck front sprocket for the chain, dyna discount seat (haha, that sounds cheap), and Dia-Compe brake.

Sorry, link to image doesn't seem to be working and I see no way to edit my post (odd).

Looks like this will work:

It`s either an RM-1 or an RM-2.


Still searching for my missing bikes from BITD. 1979 Blue Max serial: CI9 221346 and 1977 Webco serial: 42667. Both were last seen at Spoke and Sport Bicycles in Spokane, WA around 1984. $600 reward if found!!

Check out this thread/bike posted. It was posted incorrectly as an RM-1

RM-1 frames are from 1979 only and have no serial #. There is some debate as to whether they have a cross brace near the bottom bracket or not. Very few RM-1's have ever surfaced, and most people actually own RM-2's.

Yours is an RM-2.


mmmm........loop tails.......

...and that's all I have to say about that...
