Redline revs up the retro with 2017 PL-26

19 08 2016

Back in early 2015, Redline caught our attention when they revealed that they had rebooted the iconic PL-24 as a 26-inch.

It was billed as a “modern take on the classic.”

And while it did have modern touches, like an integrated 1 1/8 headset and linear brakes to complement the old school graphics, Flight cranks and bear claw pedals…it never seemed quite “retro enough” (at least to us) in the black paint job they had selected for the reboot.

Thankfully for 2017, Redline has revved up the retro factor and decked it out in white…which is much more fitting color-wise and more reminiscent of the era that inspired it.

Redline reboots the PL-24 as a 26″

17 04 2015

Redline has let the cat out of the bag…they’re rebooting the iconic PL-24  as a 26″ cruiser. In their words, with a “modern take on the classic.”

Do you think that “modern take” extends to the geometry? We’ll have to see.

If you’re in Monterey for the Sea Otter Classic this weekend, get yourself a sneak peek at the Redline booth where it will be on display. (And if you do happen to be there…be a pal and get some more deets and photos for us, OK?)

Here’s a pic of the PL-26 that Redline has been sharing on social media.

Those levers, tho.

Zoot scootin’ indeed.

Update:
