AGE / VALUE:   Redline Rl 340 posted by: Ian on 2/3/2006 at 12:40:34 AM
I was wondering about the value of this Redline 340 RL the bike is a metallic red color. The frame has some scratches but overall the bike is in alright condition. Odyssey 1999 front brake and a diacomp center pull brake in the back. This bike is fast and solid. Right now it is in pieces because I am oiling and rebuilding everything. The tires are knob job tires good for 130 psi. The rims are Redline aluminum.

This bike is the only one I have seen on the internet with this red color paint job, I am sure it is stock. Maybe it is rare, but I just don’t know.

Is anyone interested in this bike? How much is it worth.
Thanks for your time,
Ian

I have a a Kawasaki bx200 in beautiful condition that's been with me for right at 20 years now , I rode it hard and to my last year in High school . This is my first attempt at communicating with maybe some old schoolers?, since then cleaned her up and put on acouple of nos parts she looks and is factory fast ,blast from the past .I started racing after my big brother got the itch in 1978 , San Diego home of Rancho El Cajon's famous downhill track etc...... went to December 1980 Azuza Pro-Neck Nationals ,1980 Mongoose Grand Nationals ... lots of local racing ,home of Shawn Texas ,wicked fast dude . Where are you my friend?,. OK end of story thanks for reading. I am currently starting a build base with the araya 7b's first generation blue anodizethat I bought new from Wheel's and Thing's back in 1981. they have been waiting for this day to come for a long long time . I will need a Pro long frame now that I am 39 years old . Something from 1977 ,79,80 any ideas?. Everything else is a brain storm ,this is going to blow some minds. I now reside in Great Falls Montana what a trip . Please feel free to e-mail me .

This weekend I found my old 70's model alum frame Kawasaki still in storage under my mother's house. Covered in dust with rotted tires, but good shape. My brother and I had identical bikes, and both are in storage. So like you I am looking for information...I had no idea they might be valuable. Does anyone know the best place to market a bike like this?

RE: Kawasaki BMX (1974/1975)
I had one of the prototype Kawi BMX bikes made in 1973'74.
My particular unit had a green-painted STEEL frame because
the factory was still figuring out how to weld the
aluminum frames. (They had a rep for breaking when
the pros first tried them).

My dad was managing Kawasaki's accessory division
in California where this first Kawi BMX bike was developed.
Obviously with the full hydraulic telescopic-fork and dual
rear shocks the bike was HEAVY but back then alot of the
BMX courses were rather decisively downhill :)

MISC:   Larz Anderson National Bike Show: Sunday August 13th posted by: Peter Naiman on 1/17/2006 at 4:11:13 PM
We're holding 10th annual show at the Museum of Transportation at 15 West Newton Street., Brookline, MA. Starting time will be at approximately 9:00AM and run until 3:00PM with set up at 8:00AM, with the usual scenic Vintage Ride through the paths of the Emerald Necklace which runs through Boston and Brookline. Please put this on your schedule, as we plan to have a great time again this year. More information on the show to follow.

If folks are interested, I'll put together a swap meet close by as there are a few venues within 10-15 minutes of the Museum of Transportation grounds. Last years swap that Linda Pernice tried organizing in Watertown, didn't take place for a number of reasons, but if I can get enough early support, I'll put together a swap meet which will be well attended if I get the word out to everyone on my growing mailing list. So if your interested in a swap meet please write and let me know offlist.

Best regards,
Peter Naiman
Glendale, WI

Hey Neal,
The bike in question did indeed have a lime green front fender. I had one of those bikes as a kid. Heavy as a tank but tough as one too. Also had a number plate on the handle bars with lime green in the number logo (#1 I think).

MISC:   Redline 401 Flight Cranks? posted by: Joe on 1/4/2006 at 4:41:56 AM
Hi,
I was looking on eBay for a set of cranks for an old Diamond Back that I have and found these,

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7209352607&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&rd=1

the seller has them listed as coming off of a Diamond Back Silver Streak II, and I was wondering if these are indeed Redline Flight's, A local bike shop told me that his old catalog listed Redline 401 Flight Cranks as original equipment on my bike, but I would need to find them online as is they are no longer made.

I have been trying to find decals for my 1983 mongoose minigoose, i have looked on the internet for two days for like four hours a day and i am about to freak out. I also need some tires for it, the ones that were on it are panaracers, and are 20-1-1/8's. Also i need the stock sprocket, and a set of spokes. I know this is most likely a lost cause but if anyone has any insite on where i can find parts for this bike that would really be cool. Also does anyone know the value on this model of mongoose. The frame,drop outs, forks,rims are all good, thanks, Matt
