Your authorative resource for BMX, Old school to New
In 1979 the ProLine was modified with a lighter rear dropout, lighter forks, same 5" headtube, and geometry change for better handling.
Redline began to expand their product offerings with the famous V bars and redefined Redline Proline double clamp stem thoroughly tested by Byron Friday. The stem features a 45 degree angle brace allowing for more surface area to be welded for strength. The clamps in '77 were the same as the '75 prototype stem but Redline modified to increase the size for more gripping power, strength, and stamped for Redline quality.
The bike features era correct parts and the Araya 7b's, laced to Suntour & Bendix Redline coaster brake hubs, and with Carlisle Aggressor MX front tire.
Hope you all enjoy another historical Redline ride.
