hmm......Kurt, your frame is definetly Japanese made as you can see by the redline stamp but it is different to the stamp on my "RC" series 3. another weird thing is "RA" is generally known as 1981, buttttt they didn't start making series 3 frames til late '82. if it was an mxII it wouldn't have the holes in the BB..................unless the Japanese made frames had this feature earlier than the US frames. my american made 1979 mxII does not have those holes.
ok. another feature of the series 3 frame is the double butted BB and head tube. does the middle of the BB look thinner than where the cups press in? if it does it will defo be a series 3 frame, so those stickers would be correct....................still dosn't explain the "RA" doh!!

anyway, great score there mate, along with the others and i hope you enjoy building them up.

get well soon waza, i'm sorry to hear you're crook.
waza007
Kurt, I have a feeling that your redline is NZ made by healing cycles
Kurt.
Hey thanks for that Allen.

Here's the BB - definitely the same thickness all the way through. The other thing that makes me think the stickers were added later is that on the other side of the frame the sticker is in the wrong position - see how it wraps right under the frame...


Kurt.
PS: You can't go wrong with the lot for $13.50...

that's an interesting twist, waza. it could explain the different redline stamp and drilled but not double butted BB.
Kurt.
Hey thanks Waza - what's the story with the Healing frames?
mcam
The Healing frames were made under license by Healing Industries here in Christchurch, for Redline.

They were only available in chrome, with red components. Redline Frame/Fork/Bars/Stem/Pads, with Sugino Maxy Cross cranks, Dia Compe 890 brakes (front and rear) and red Snakebelly tires. A good friend of mine (back then) was a Redline Factory rider for Redline through Healing Industries. He worked there, helping to assemble the bikes (when he wasn't training smile.gif )

I have the original ad here, but dont have it handy to post. I'm pretty sure Andy does tho.

Kurt.
Hey cool mcam - be really interested to see that.

Is there anything different about the serial numbers for the Healing frames?
waza007
i seem to remember Andy Diamond saying they didnt even have an oval stamp so the logo is different. check with him

AndyDiamond
Pretty sure that is not NZ made unless the decals have been updated - they only did an MXIII 700.
AndyDiamond
here's a pic of a NZ-made Redline Serial number:



Hutch XL24 rebuild - more pics/info in the main forum.

Kurt.
Thanks Andy. Different stamp and number style. My theory is stiill '81 Jap MX11 with a couple of later stickers.
The Hutch looks great mate!
Cheers

I've really got to start watching what I wish for. This found me - NOS 1983 Redline PL24 in original chrome, NOS pads, Redline cruiser bars in original chrome

Kurt.
Cool cruiser Martin - always like those PL24s
www.martin-bike.com
Yeah, they're cool Kurt.

Got some replacement face plates for Mini Series plates - now just need to source some old plates

Holy !@#$% batman, where did you find those mini series decals Martin?

If you er, need to let one go, er, *cough* let me know smile.gif

Nice PL24 too... LarryS had one built from a NOS frameset a while ago. It was very tasty smile.gif

Do you mean this one?





To me, any bike looks naked without a plate. I'll be doing a slightly different parts selection also.

Hey all you fella's who were able to attend the gathering yesterday.....any chance of some pics???
serva
ok......pretty please...... rolleyes.gif
ACGTO
It was a great day. I didn't take a camera though so no pics from me. Good to see the race bikes outnumber the freestyle bikes too.

Great seeing a few of the guys taking the old school bikes around the new school track. Plenty of nice bikes there too.

There appeared to be plenty of photo's getting taken so I'm guessing they'll start appearing soon.

you blokes cant have looked to hard for pics! laugh.gif

I went to the lbs today to buy 2 bolts for my Monters cranks and came out with these too!
Profile x 10 (die cut)
Oakley x 3 (die cut)
Peregrine x 3
Chrome Hutch x 1 of each.
These are all the real deal. Not repros.
I was happy.
All are up for grabs apart from 1 Profile die cut.

Nice one, I like finding ol stickers at the LBS. I scored a couple of Revcore stickers not long back at mine.
Jarvi
Sorry to hear that some of you couldn't make it. It was a great day even if I was way off the pace in the racing. I think the sight of a guy letting go of his bike going into the first corner might have had an effect on me, or was it that I was trying to pump the tyres up too much (to reduce the squishiness) and ended up blowing both a front and rear. Enough of the excuses. And taking a Hutch Pro Racer to a show when Leroy has his there is just embarrassing.

I'll get some photos up once I've had a chance to catch up on some work stuff. Adam couldn't take any photos because I was always pushing my video camera into his hands. Thanks mate.

Kudos to Gary and his helpers for putting on a great event. How he managed to race two classes and do everything else was amazing.

Stu, Robert and I went for a ride along the beach on Sunday morning. Jumping off kerbs, dodging people, cars and animals was great fun. I felt like a teenager again, until the sprint race the three of us had up the final hill back to Stu's place. All three of us needed oxygen and based on Robert's consumption the day before I think he might have won on handicap.
84profile
It was a great weekend! Thanks to all involved. The racing was awesome and I would have to say the pace was very hot, I thought all us old guys would be much, much slower, but there was some very spirited racing to say the least. Just wish we could all race these things together on a regular basis!

Here is a photo that I hijacked from Roberto camera...a Gate Start in practice, apart from some of us that couldn't fit into their old school gear (cough... me.. cough cough) it was a totally authenic feel of old school racing...right down to a few nerves which I haven't felt for many years!



Then there was the show, and as per usual the stardard was pretty high....but Leroy's blinging Pro Racer picked the win for the per 86 20" BMX! Gotta say it is a master piece, nice job buddy! Pete Porkers Quicky won best Cruiser, and man that thing is sweet too. There were 2 other classes and unfortunately I have forgotten the names of the winners of those classes. Then there was Roberto's Haro....wow... and also Jame's Hutch was sweet too (hardly embrassing)!
Pete Porker
Hi guys, nice to meet some of you at the weekend, and well done to Gary for all the work he did.
I posted over in the gathering thread, there's t-shirts still available. And here's an arty pic i took of the vintage final -
Volcano
That photo of the start gate reminds me of the end credit sequence of BMX Bandits! Who was PJ and who was Goose? (and who was Judy laugh.gif )
Looks like a good day had by all. No big stacks I hope.
Great weather for a few races between mates. Pity I couldn't make it. dry.gif
Awesome bikes in the display area too. Hats off to all those involved.

Time to offend a few people. Anyone else think Stu should be in jockey gear rather than BMX gear?

www.martin-bike.com
Hey I've never been to one of these things - who's in the pic left to right?
Jarvi
Leroy, 84Profile and ACGTO aka Leigh, Stu and Adam.
ACGTO
I don't often look at myself. Think I'd better build myself a couple of riders and actually ride them and make Stu look big again.
www.martin-bike.com
Nice one . . . g'day boyz!!!
Jarvi
Don't worry Adam once I've gone through the rest I'll post the other one where you were sucking in the stomach.

James, does this mean game on?

Actually gotta say I have never been told I look like a jockey before....I would freakin crush a horse...

Crusty the clown buys a Haro? biggrin.gif

The gloves are off! Get into it boys!

I have the worst helmet hair when it gets a bit longer, which is why as soon as the helmet comes off the cap goes on. Now, back to iPhoto for some more...
AndyDiamond
Can we have some more pics of the yellow GT Performer, less of Jarvi?
lol
Jarvi
Looks like I'm getting it from everywhere now... Here you go Andy, just a teaser with come close ups to come later. Sure was a nice bike.

AndyDiamond
it is nice - a coupla things I'd change but very cool.

Gotta love that Fiola era freestyle stuff.

Great day at Ashmore on the weekend, thanks Pete and Gaza Winmill for putting so much time and effort into it.
Great to meet you guys from here in person and lots of old friends from racing that i had not seen in awhile.
Only problem is it all went to quick and racing on the day chewed into the time even more.
