  1. I've learned a ton and improved my collection. I need to get some pics of details and get it up. B-MX in flat bed and concave, stamped and unstamped (super early), spindle bosses. Spindle swap donors (for that I gotta have 1/2" pedal guy who just can't find them). All sorts of info. Just a teaser.
  2. The "big" lug is the earlier model. The leaner lug is newer.
  3. Being I try to save cool GJS pics as they turn up, here's that hand cut brake bridge. This is the one item I'd still love to see and hear more about. Look at the back-end, top. Mongoose inspired. I believe this is the GJS prototype.
  4. 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. Frame/Fork: Redline Proline. Stem: Redline double clamp. Bars/grips. Generic original alloy bars with Ourys. Not V-bars interestingly. Cranks: 170mm C-Dated DuraAce cranks and Shimano chainwheel. Pedals: MKS BM-1's Seat: Suede Professional brand. Seatpost/clamp: Generic post, generic Schwinn style clamp. Brakes: Diacompe caliper and bronco bend lever. Wheels: Araya 7Bs with Schwinn hubs. Those are actually super faded red anno. And the original hub straps to keep them clean still there Tires: Cycle Pro Snakebellies. Pads: Original Redline pads. Badass stickers. JT Racing. SE Racing. "If you value your life...." Pics of how it was found and that original owner logo
  5. Cool bike. Story is both sad and happy. TufNeck bars need a head on shot. They're pretty easy to spot due to the sharp angles. But there were lots of folks putting out bars, so likely something generic as something branded.
  6. They're still out there. LRV. Probably 1977'ish. I had to swap the seat and pedals, and somehow didn't have Ourys to use. This needs a Brian Hays elbow grease workover still, he kills it with his finish clean up. But, pretty stoked. Original owner bike from Ohio. Original finishes. Early MCS stem. 25" wide Redline bars. It came with a 7b rear/Tuff front, but I swapped to a Tuffwheel set.
  7. An early 6 bolt. Note the Pompano Beach location. DelRay beach I believe was the first. And one of those medium sized ones.
  8. Here's the one thing that got me a bit concerned, right out of the article, "The machines were recently auctioned off, including to a company in Vietnam." Anyone else curious about that?
  9. What FB group is that in? It seems like a good discussion, but, I've not seen it in any feeds/groups I'm in.
  10. Look like Mongoose bars? But no bump for the single stem. Maybe a tad later?
  11. You can have one made cheaper than you could buy one. Just sayin....
