Full Version: Redline PL-20 > VintageBMX Talk > Vintage BMX Racing
I posted this a while back in a slightly different configuration. Thanks to Cheez (rim) and Da G (seatpost) I wanted to redo it.
The Tom's Bike Shop on the plate refers to an infamous rag-tag team of BMXers who thanks to Tom Derosier (RIP) got their start in BMX. Not totally famous cats but several riders who would put a hurt on people like EK and others when they showed up. People like Mike Hardaway, Pepe Mason, David Garcia, Jimmy McDaniels, Van Johnson and others. I ran the team for a few years in the late 70s/early 80s and took a few trophies back from the nationals. A similar bike was my last bike I bought at that shop

Recently, Tom's oldest daughter Mary passed away. She was good people and helped out the kids as much as she could. My way of saying thanks

Awsome Redline ! I gotta get me a Proline one day. Thats a sweet bike.
Thanks guys

I have a pic of the man. RIP

You've definitely got the eye. That's a sweet ride, as usual, and an awesome tribute!

Are those girder forks in the upper-right of the bike shop photo?
THAT'S the way I remember Redline! Classic!
Looks very good. A Redline built without the typical Fight cranks is a plus from me.
Hey Reilly, where was Tom's bike shop? No relation to Thomas bike shop in G.H. right? Nice Redline! Thomas' always had nice Redline's that attracted my attention.
