Additional Notes


Stu Thomsen ABA #1 replica Featured in the May 1980 issue of Bicycle Motocross Action

1980 Stu left SE racing for Redline and with Stu being the #1 ABA Pro this really boosted sales of Redline and Stu's career. Redline offered Stu the opportunities to expand his career which became a historic relationship. The Redline team was "the Team", top quality products, National titles, NORA Cup winner, and great spokesperson/ambassador for BMX.

In 1980 the ProLine was modified with a stronger rear dropout, lighter forks, same 5" head tube, and geometry change for better handling. The ProLine was designed for riders 5'6" or greater and the MicroLine products for under 5' 6".

Redline introduced a new catalog featuring Stu and his brother in-law Greg Hill.

* New Super ProLine (brute) stem was introduced.
* New Flight cranks that had no pinch bolt which was added late 1981 to secure the crank on the beefy Redline spindle.
* New one piece Flight gear, lightweight, strong, and easy to change.
* New flute seat post
* New BMX "MX-III" complete bike
* New TUFF RIDER complete bike
* New MOTO-S complete bike
* New EXPERT complete bike
* New Jerseys, Jackets, patches, sticker sets, logo pads, caps, etc.

The bike features what Stu Thomsen rode that year including the modified Honda MX lever and dust cover from his mini-bike. The details are in the May 1980 Bicycle Motocross Action. It's very rare to see black wall Cycle Pro Snakebelly tires and here we have one on the back with a NOS Carlisle Aggressor MX front mounted on first Generation Skyway Tuff's that were introduced then.
