An Authentic RL20 II Pro Styler Frame, Fork, and Handlebar Reissue Built by “THE’ Linn Kastan…..
The time has come, and these authentic reissue packages are now available for pre-order. October 28, 10am AEST, the USA will launch the website for those who wish to secure this authentic reissue of arguably the most beautifully designed and advanced BMX Freestyle models of the 1980s era.
Designed by Redline founder and Chief Engineer Linn Kastan, the legendary Redline RL 20 II Pro Styler set new standards for style and innovation in the escalating 80s freestyle scene. Kastan's vision for product design delivered an uncompromising specification born from his unique understanding of Chromoly steel manufacturing.
We have selected the three most iconic color combinations from within the first two model years of the RL 20 II; Hazard Yellow and Radberry from the 1985 line-up, and California Red, from 1986. Using the original engineering drawings for tolerances and modeled on an original 1985 RL 20 II frame, fork, and handlebar from Linn Kastan's archive, this limited-edition project oozes authenticity. It brings the most celebrated product designer in the history of BMX face-to-face with arguably his greatest creation. Kastan produces this limited-edition reissue for delivery during summer 2021.
One hundred of each color is produced for sale in the United States, Europe, and Asia. An additional 100 packages, split equally between the three colors, are produced for New Zealand and Australia.
The package price is $2,999.99 RRP (AUD) and is limited to 100 sets only. Delivery time should be mid-2021.
Each package includes the following items:
- A full Chromoly Redline RL 20 II Replica frame and fork set built to original 80s specification.
- A set of Redline Forklifter Freestyle handlebars built to original 80s specification.
- A replica Redline Forklifter number plate. An era-original Forklifter plate was referenced for measurements, features, specifications, and the creation of the mold.
- A limited edition 44T aluminum, Redline Flight X sprocket.
- A serialized Redline Pilots Manual.
Each customer is invited to select a color. The package items are in development and we will update regularly on the manufacturing process via email and social media.
