Re: 1982 Redline MX-II

Any help in dating this frame?
And, can anyone tell from the pics if these are REDLINE forks as well?

Thanks.

Re: 1982 Redline MX-II

Can anyone tell me how I can safely get rid of the "freckles" on my original chrome REDLINE MX-11????? Years ago, I would have used S.O.S./Brillo Pads on all chrome, but I don't want to cause scratching......what do you all recommend??

Thanks.

Re: 1982 Redline MX-II

use the stuff that comes in a tin can called "never dull" its like a big ball of cotton with a polish absorbed in it. with a few rubs it knocks off the rust and makes the chrome shine =)  its a silver can with black letters. you cant built bikes without it.

they sell it at auto part stores...heres a pic in case you have never seen the stuff

when i see a mongoose at walmart, i try and picture the metal being used to make something more useful, like a frying pan, or maybe some clothes hangers...oh well...its out of my hands.

my bikes are tri-moly. that means i have 3 times more chromo than you..haha

Re: 1982 Redline MX-II

I have almost the same exact frame, are the rear triangle tubes drilled at the end on yours?  Mine are not, I have another Redline frame that I cannot ID and will get some photos up this weekend for help.

Re: 1982 Redline MX-II

you can use steel wool....but ONLY the "0000" grade.  it wont scratch the chrome.    go to home depot or something and look on the packaging.   most places like pep boys, etc. will only have "00" or "000"....dont use those. 

ONLY USE "0000"

with a little MOTHERS polish...that thing will be shining!


Always looking for anything from... 
Star Products BMX, White Bear, Hustler, GJS, Panda, Rebel Racing, Blazer or BXC.


VINYL RECORDS & CASSETTES
I buy, sell, or trade -  Have over 50,000+ Hip Hop, Rock, Funk, Soul, Reggae, Jazz, Punk, etc.   I’ll even trade records and bmx too.
