1986 Redline RL-20a

A MUST HAVE FOR ME A TOTAL RAD BIKE!

This bike has been on my want list for a long time since I first saw the movie RAD and happened to come across the frame set for sale here in the Museum from member maldito6969 who I've done several transactions with already and his prices are great so I couldn't refuse and now I'm going to build this one up.

cleaned up cheapo CMC's but I mean the chrome has been protected by a layer of white paint for years so I just decided to use them because hey I already had them and the chrome is mint and they spin straight so why not, however once I come across some Peregrines or Araya's I will definitely be swapping them out because the hubs deserve it they are super rare

Re: 1986 Redline RL-20a

All the Arayas and Peregrines hoops I've seen are satin and I'm good with that as long as the wheels stay true I'm happy

I had 1996 NOS 1/2" Redline pedals that were just laying around, also a pair of 9/16 Mission pedals and just swapped out the spindles that way I had a full NOS Redline 3 pce. crank set also as a bonus the Mission spindles were a metallic red big_smile

I always try to improvise and use items I have. I have a never ending wall and bins full of old school parts but I have many NOS items also, so why not use the Redline pedals if I can, if the shoe fits wear it right and thanks for the props big_smile

Re: 1986 Redline RL-20a

I took a little different route on this bike put some different old school more appropriate rims on it, usually the rings on these wheels are made by Araya and the hubs are high end Bitex https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/257161/20190331_2023425ca15ad8d4.jpg
