the Redline RL 20 II Pro Styler reissue project delivers something authentic and special - a limited edition release package manufactured by Kastan. On October 27th at 5PM US Pacific time, the website opens for preorders.
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 and can be pre-ordered through local distribution at the link on the website store page.
The package price is $1,599.99 and is paid in full at the point of pre-order.
-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 and serial number. The package items are in development and will update regularly on the manufacturing process via email and social media.
