*ROFL* at those grips! Heehee I remember those from the very early 80s! the hardest most uncomfortable grips ever! and they slipped all over the place cos they plastic nut rubber.

Ok, you might want to look at www.vintagebmx.com and www.bmxmuseum.com they both have for sale/trade forums if you want to try get some original parts. Also, you can look through the bikes in the museum to get the exact year and model, so you know what parts to look for. www.vert-ego.com and www.80sbmx.com might be of some help

Cython: Actually, the grips stay in place real good, put them on with hairspray a long time ago and they haven't moved in like 2 years. They are pretty hard, but I don't think they are uncomfortable. And thanks for all the links man

LIbmx83092: Well I guess you could call me nostalgic LOL, I just really like the way the thing looks with all the little RL stamping onthe parts and stuff. I have upgraded to some new parts like the cranks, stem and rims. I'm sure once I **** up the forks bad or what not I will upgrade to newer ones, but for now I prefer to kick it old school :lol:

kill4lyfe: Well I figured I would get rif of the horrible meat shredding cage pedals I had on there, slipped off of them once and had to get stiches in my right shin. That was my deciding point on getting something a little more user friendly.

DavoRidesBikes: I rode from when i was like 12 to about 18, did mainly dirt and down-hill riding. I'm from a small West Virginia town not really anything as far as park/street to ride on. Had to quit when I moved to college, didn't have shit to ride there, except sidewalks.

Britrider: Honestly man, I am just using it to ride, gonna rig up some pegs to fit the front forks and go at it. If somethign breaks, I'll upgrade it :lol: Have no real set goal, I just always like riding and want to do it some more.


Thanks for everyones input and comments I appreciate it. As far as the old school stuff... I know, and I love the old thing and like I told LIbmx I am an old fashioned/nostalgic persn. I've rode alot of newer model bikes, but i just don't like the way they feel. I don't know if I am just to used to this frame after riding on it for like 6 years or what. But I think i will keep my old Redline :D
