1988 Redline RL-20II

Your average 88 RL 20-II with 990 rear brakes. One of the MOST comfortable cruise around town frames ever made (it's the coolest and classiest).

This bike started off as a flatland bike but turned into a long distance fun ride for my brother. As you can see, this baby is build for comfort, being long and roomy! My brother would ride this thing up to 20 miles from the house all the time with friends. Night rides, weekend trips, he rode this thing all over. Now this one is best friends in the attic with my Free Agent Freeflite.
There aren't any cracks on the frame at all, the 2 seat post clamps are just for looks and extra protection, with that snake post one can never be too careful with these Full Chromoly (or "CHROME-MOLY" as it says on the bottom bracket) frames.
This bike has:
•GT Epoch Headset
•Hutch Stem (Western Style H Pro Stem)
•HBS Powerbend Bull Bars
•ODI Mushroom Stu Thomsen Signature Grips
•Snake Seatpost (not sure of the brand, may be Kuwahara)
•Dyna Viscount Seat
•Tioga Seat clamp (upper)
•Mongoose Decade Pro seat clamp (lower)
•Tioga Crazy Chain
•Sugino Crank arms
•Victor Pedals (Shimano SX copies)
•Peregrine Super Pro 48 Wheels (Chrome)
•1st or 2nd Generation GT Tires (can't recall which generation)
•ACS 880 Front Brake & Dia-Compe 990 Rear Brake w/ Dia-Compe Tech 3 - 2 finger levers
And yes, that is a little rubber bear between the top tubes. My brother found it on a ride and it stayed there for 25 years... why take it away now wink

Dude. smile
Hutch stems are great on these. Long and low.
That must be a reach with that seat post.
This bike is amazing.

Re: 1988 Redline RL-20II

Thanks. it's actually not a reach, it's so very comfortable to ride, and yeah, the Hutch stem is definitely a great addition. It feels like you're riding a killer cruiser but it's a 20". Those bars are also comfortable with the pseudo powerbend. Thanks again. smile
