Redline Proline restoration

I recently bought this frame from Bmxzack at a great deal. It had shitty off white paint covering the frame and fork. I saw a big area of original paint under the BB. I did not want to repaint the frame so I decided to remove the shitty paint. I tried denatured alcohol and graffiti remover which took to long for me. I then tried the yellow can of Easy Off heavy duty oven cleaner. I sprayed it and let it sit for around 5-10 minutes. I could tell the easy off was working good and started wiping it off. It took me less than a hour to finish in between the other stuff I was doing around the house. The forks are good to go. The frame needs wet sanding and polishing. Super stoked that I saved the original paint. Thanks Bmxzack for the frame. Here’s some pics before and after.

Re: Redline Proline restoration

Here’s a couple of pics of the finished Redline Proline. Saved the original paint on the frame and fork. My hands hurt from polishing the frame. Well worth the save!

Re: Redline Proline restoration

The pain and hard work is what makes it feel worth it.....now that was a great save.

If you are OK with your actions why the concerted effort to hide what happened?

Re: Redline Proline restoration

Fantastic.  Thank you for saving the OG finish.


"That LiL Holeshot I built a couple years ago that took Best Mini was a nice bike, but I'll bet most people didn't even see the greatest thing about it. The frame and fork was in awesome condition, and when I started to build it I found residue of car wax in the welds. That means at one time, long ago some little kid enjoyed that bike so much that he sat and stared at it while he waxed it to perfection. That's the kinda stuff I appreciate, and can relate to very well."  John De Bruin-6/21/09
