1987 Redline RL-20a

Redline's BMX / Freestyler bike

This is a 1988 production of the 1987 RL-20A Redline did it in the 87 color scheme/decals for unknown reasons.  I always heard it the RL-20A was over produced in 1987 so they carried them on over to 88, and even placed it pictured in the 88 catalog. It appeared in the 1988 catalog, and an 87 catalog was never made by Redline. It is a replica of my childhood bike, how I had it exactly.

Hey Stephen, nice build.

Do you know if Redline ever made a Black RL20?

Re: 1987 Redline RL-20a

Thanks - that is just how I had it when I raced in the early 90's.  I remember the local thief (every one knew he was) in my area would watch me ride around...

Re: 1987 Redline RL-20a

I use Mother Mag and Wheel Cleaner (wax).  I also use Walmarts 91% rubber Alcohol.  I go back and forth with each of those several times.

Re: 1987 Redline RL-20a

That looks good.  Remember though, the Mothers Polish is what really takes that all off.  The alcohol helps remove the residue that is left behind from the wax.   Keep going between those two things...
