Title: RL 20 Osborn Tribute Build. FINISHED
Post by: Cherrypicker on September 03, 2018, 02:26 PM
The RL20 has arrived. Iím really excited about this build, prob my last one. I only need the f/f, so the rest will be available. Itís going to be a tribute bike - RLís 84 tour bike - Iím hoping for the quality of my Ruffell replica Streetbeats. Itís going to need a ton of love though, itís been rattle-canned badly. Forks are chrome underneath as well, just to add insult to injury 😬

My balls tingle alittle every time I see RL20 as a subject.

Easily the most underated freestyle frame and forks....I have two. Light for a freestyler but strong. Redline gave these frame and forks a lifetime guarantee!! I'm not lucky enough however to have the very early front forks you have, the ones without the peg bosses. The swedged forks are a work of metalworking art!

Don't neglect the build thread - Ive lost the love recently, this could fire it up!!

I love RL20s, I have one that I need to build up too. Mine has no peg bosses but i think they are from a PL20 but I'm no expert.
Looking forward to this build. What crank is that and is it for sale if not needed?  "wantit"

Dug out a pic of RLís bike. One or two ďdifficultĒ parts to acquire - may take a while. Iíve got to get the rattle can paint stripped off and get it to SBD so Iíll have time. I think maybe the Panaracer Stadium tyres might be a sticking point and a 41 tooth bubble font. The cranks that came with the frame are Redline Proline 180ís so theyíll be up for grabs as theyíre the wrong ones. Iíve found an old 80ís motor cross number plate to make the Buff guard from.

Post by: deeman on September 05, 2018, 10:33 PM
41 tooth bubble font shouldn't be too difficult mate as no one really wants 'em...all I see is 41, 42 45, 47 etc these days!  If they are the Panaracers with the big black writing that could take a good while...if they are Panaracer freestyle some should turn up.....will keep an eye out... :daumenhoch:

Thanks deeman, tried that guy, he wonít take PayPal or ship to uk.
Nitromors day today, hate that stuff, frameset is stripped and in good shape. Bonus of all that thick paint is that the drops are mint. A little bit more fettling and itíll be off to SBD  :smitten:

Iím thinking the decal is repop. The signature is too fat. It is positioned right on the edge of the Redline stamp, just looks slightly too large.

By freestyle bolt do you mean a Potts mod? That's what put me off building a repro of the OG advert one as the RL20 was the first bike i really remember running them and I wouldn't want to not run one on mine  :chin:

Buff guard shenanigans. Cut from an 80ís old numberplate. Much trimming and sanding later, I think I finally have the guard sitting the way it does in the magazine pic. I used additional cable ties and then poured boiling water over the guard to soften it. Pulled all the cables ties tight to get the required shape and removed them when it cooled down.

These bad boys were exceptionally difficult to find. I had Ďwantedí ads all over the world for these. Somebody on here is going to say theyíve got half a dozen pairs in their cave now! Anyway, really stoked that these have landed today from Canada and bonus - no import tax to pay. Final part to find is the Redline bubble font 41 tooth chainring and Iím talking to a guy in California that has one. SBD has the frameset so as soon as itís back, Iíll start assembly.

Nah, I see his point - he only collects/sells original condition parts. The 44 I sent him has def had a light polish in its time. He doesnít want it.

Good news - Iíve got a response from the American fella and heís agreed to sell me his 41 and send mine back too. The main problem was that he wouldnít accept a PayPal payment, but has agreed to on this occasion to help me finish the bike. Happy as. Spoke to Dan last night and the frame is powdered, it looks beautiful. Props to SBD, the welds still look stunning and the finish looks the muttís nuts. Just got to wait for it to get back and then wait for the chainring and then itís on the bench  :slayer:

Next project will be the flo panel and some questions that have been baking my noodle this week.

Post by: Cherrypicker on October 16, 2018, 11:10 AM
So, question time. At the time of the article in the magazine (84), RL was running Panaracer tyres and his build specs list the tyres as ĎNational Tyresí. If you have access to a copy of Freestyle BMX v1 issue 2 - take a look. Iíll put up some pics but digital quality they are not. Now, he was touring with Mike and Mikeís bike spec lists his tyres as Comp Stadium. In the magazine pics it seems pretty clear that they are both using the same tyres and that RL is also using Comp Stadium tyres. Have at it.

National/ panaracer are /were the same company......probably just described differently in the one mag? The tyres you have look right to me... :-\
Title: Re: RL 20 Osborn Tribute Build.
Post by: McQUEEN on October 16, 2018, 05:26 PM
the panaracer tyres logos have white inserts as well as yellow.....there's no white in the image, so I'd defo back the stadiums...

A good day today. A package from Del with the frame decals and some for the plate. Just awaiting one more decal from the States. The 41 arrived from America today too. Wasnít in great condition and had some oxidation and caked on rust (from the chain). Thatís been soaking in some water with 4 Steradent tablets (for false teeth) all day and has come out looking much better. Put it in a zip-lock bag with a thorough coating of wd40 for a couple hours and that has taken off any last bits of dirt.
Ready to build  :D.

You wouldnít want to get off it. You know when you sit on a bike and it just feels right? Itís proper lovely, might have to ride it - after changing out the tyres of course !  8)
I so need to get mine built up now - this is my favourite bike I've seen on here for ages  :smitten: :smitten:
