Always liked to ride Cruisers and have built a few in the past. This one was built for riding and not neccesarily showing so comfort was in order. May change the seat over at some point but definately wanted to stay away from the modern 'SE' trend style of build. Keep it Old School and real...:-)

1985 Radberry RL20ii

I've been working on this and collecting for what seems like an age - its one of three I'm building, build thread to follow.

1985 RL20ii Frame and forks - rechromed and rear half / front forks polished with front triangle 2k repainted by SBD. Painted colour matched to og paint on handlebars. Decals by AJK Bikes.
NOS Redline fork pegs.
NOS Suntour for Redline Forklifter freestyle stem.
Redline Forklifter freestyle handlebars - repainted by SBD.
For the purests out there, if you're wondering why the Radberry colours differ, Redline screwed up the Radberry paint colours in 85 - the frame and forks where sprayed one tone lighter than the stems which were matched to the components (wheels / brake cables).
NOS 80s Oakley B1Bs.
Redline 22.2dia fluted seatpost - og finish.
Suntour broken arrow seat clamp - og finish.
NOS Peregrine seat.
Redline 180mm 401 Flights full wrap, repainted, with double dimpled spindle and mongoose stamped 28tpi bottom bracket.

NOS Dia Compe tech 4s with FS880s - All 85 stamped - og finish with a bit of polish.
NOS Dia Compe brake pads.
NOS Dia Compe brake cables, ferrules and cables, dated 051285.
Panaracer Freestyle Tyres
Cheap and nasty Halfords innertubes with CV19 Air.

When I was born, the world was a far simpler place.
It was all just cops and robbers.
And BMX.

Wicked build💥👍🏻
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. ......
