1980? MX III

Recommended Posts

Picked up a Redine MX III a few months ago, it got an RJ serial but no Redline stamp, forks don't have Redline stamp either 

Trailer pic is from a FB page, a mate had scored the trailer load, this is the first time I'd seen it 

Took a few months of asking him many times to sell it to me 

Stuck seat post was the first thing to do

Got it out OK with no damage, ended up using it 

Wheels are Ukai rims & Suzue hubs

Picking up parts was a slow process but scored some nice bits, swapped other parts from my other bikes

So far it's at this stage with a change of wheels, Campy & Weinmann

Brakes are going and maybe the bars & stem, see what happens as parts pop up

Cool find. RJ# is 80, Japanese made for Redline. R serial numbers started in 79 when Linn Kastan went to Japan to get more BMX made.
