Being I try to save cool GJS pics as they turn up, here's that hand cut brake bridge.

This is the one item I'd still love to see and hear more about. Look at the back-end, top. Mongoose inspired. I believe this is the GJS prototype.

1978 Redline Proline

Byron Grant Survivor

 

OK. I'm not sure anyone knows who Byron Grant is. But, the dude had one badass race bike from BITD. This came to me from a guy who got it at an estate sale in Texas. He priced it high enough to keep the flippers off it and I was lucky enough to land it. If you were going to build a 78 Redline, this would be how you'd draw it up. All I've replaced on this is tires and grips and added an era correct handlebar pad since it didn't have one. If you know Byron, give him a high five and point him here.

 

Frame/Fork: Redline Proline.

Stem: Redline double clamp.

Bars/grips. Generic original alloy bars with Ourys. Not V-bars interestingly. 

Cranks: 170mm C-Dated DuraAce cranks and Shimano chainwheel.

Pedals: MKS BM-1's

Seat: Suede Professional brand. 

Seatpost/clamp: Generic post, generic Schwinn style clamp.

Brakes: Diacompe caliper and bronco bend lever.

Wheels: Araya 7Bs with Schwinn hubs. Those are actually super faded red anno. And the original hub straps to keep them clean still there

Tires: Cycle Pro Snakebellies.

Pads: Original Redline pads.

Badass stickers. JT Racing. SE Racing. "If you value your life...."

Cool bike. Story is both sad and happy.

TufNeck bars need a head on shot. They're pretty easy to spot due to the sharp angles. But there were lots of folks putting out bars, so likely something generic as something branded.
