Your authorative resource for BMX, Old school to New
The 1976 frame had some improvements and most notably the front gusset was increased in size with two holes, slight geometry change, and offered the finish in chrome vs. Nickel as seen with the '74/'75 Squareback.
Redline's MX design into the BMX realm was huge and allowed many kids like myself to have a bullet proof bike but don't mention the $120 price tag for a frame and fork to my Mom in 1975. The bike features era correct parts and the MX-60's are original finish and add to the chrome Redline offered for 1976. The stem is a prototype that was featured only on the Redline Monoshock bike which had a production run of less than 50. Eventually this stem was redefined as the Proline stem featured in 1977. Kudos to Byron Friday for testing this stem which became another huge hit for Redline. Hope you all enjoy another historical Squareback ride.
