What year is my NOS Redline RL20 II kit?

Recommended Posts

I do still have it. It is still tucked away in the original box. I came up with a complete RL20II so this has just sat.

My 86 is hanging above my other 86.  :biggrin:

I'll get them both up and running this year.

A Grand National, if you like that sort of thing, and I do.

I was thinking of painting the wheels shocking pink to match the Peregrines on the bike. Whad'ya think?

Well that would not be my first choice. Your car looks perfect with the stockers.

 

Now if you had a white 87 IROC Z.........

 

By the way the Redline hanging from the ceiling also looks first class.

HI everyone. This is my first post on here. I recently decided to get serious about restoring my RL20-II so I have been doing some reading and came across this thread. Very interesting. I thought I would throw some confusion into the mix though. I have owned my RL20-II from new. It is definitely a 1987 model. Black with the pink decals (paint and decals long removed), the chrome BB, low small fork pegs etc. It was purchased from Rockville BMX in August 87. Mine does not have the weep holes in the brake bridge mentioned in this thread. It also has no serial number, just the Redline stamp on the underside of the BB shell.

Welcome to the site.  That's real cool you have your original bike from BITD.    Start a thread on it and post up some pics.  People will be able to help you with the details.

The frameset I bought in 87 also has no serial number.

I have acquired this NOS frameset since I last posted here. This one does have a SN.

One correction. my frame actually does have a serial number. I never noticed that before. In cleaning it up the other day, I saw that the BB shell was very lightly stamped with a number. It is very hard to make out. I will try to make it out and post it up here. It is so light, you have to look at it at an angle in bright sun light to make out the characters.  If I am going to paint the shell or re-chrome it, the number will be lost. Maybe the stamping machine went out of calibration in 87 :)
