1978 Redline Proline
Byron Grant Survivor
OK. I'm not sure anyone knows who Byron Grant is. But, the dude had one badass race bike from BITD. This came to me from a guy who got it at an estate sale in Texas. He priced it high enough to keep the flippers off it and I was lucky enough to land it. If you were going to build a 78 Redline, this would be how you'd draw it up. All I've replaced on this is tires and grips and added an era correct handlebar pad since it didn't have one. If you know Byron, give him a high five and point him here.
