RL Osborn would be proud

2 02 2011

Stumbled across this build the other day on bmxmuseum.com.

This guy did a great job of transforming a regular 24″ race bike into a cool looking 24″ version of one of the iconic freestyle bikes of the the 1980s, the Redline RL-20II.

Hard to believe that it started off a 2000 Redline John Purse Signature Series 24.

Check out this “before” picture:

Pretty amazing what Rustoleum Key Lime paint, Forklifter bars and some creativity will get you. You can follow the build of the bike on this bmxmuseum.com thread.

Do you by chance know what size rims and wheels are needed for the 2000 Redline John Purse Signature Series? Or can you tell me which ones will fit?
