Redline? BMX Identification

Postby surfin' addiction » Fri May 17, 2013 9:35 am

Hi guys,

I'm not entirely sure this is the right forum for this question, but I wasn't sure where all the old school BMX tech heads would be lurking around so I thought I'd start here. This was my old BMX as teenager and I have just recently dug it out of the back of the shed at my parents house and thought I give it a lick of paint, a bit of love and hand it down to my nephews. Now I was always under the impression that this bike was a Redline as it has a Redline stamped stem, bars, cranks and chain ring, front wheel and originally had an RL 'Tuff' on the rear. I have done a bit of a search on the interwebs through Google image search etc, but have not found anything that looks the same as this frame. If anyone has any ideas or insight, or would like to direct me to right forum if you don't believe this belongs here that would be great.

Cheers,

Ha ha, depends. Do you want to tell me more of what you know about it? I was really just intending to fix it up and give it to my sisters kids.

Hi, best bet go to bmx museum.com and scroll through the redline pages and you should find the exact model if that's what it is, not really valuable in a money sense as post 1990 don't bring much coin and your looks as early 90s at its oldest due to its rear brakes, still priceless if it's your childhood bike and worth the resto....

i was kidding. i have no idea what it is. figured you were trawling for info so you could ebay it next week. do it up for your sisters kids, or buy a cheap bike off gumtree and put yours in the shed.
