RedLine Proline

In late 1980 we chose RedLine Proline frames for our Alans Team bikes. Alan Woods, Dave Arnold, Mike Chilvers and Mark Scully built these white framests up into bikes. They were raced at the indoor race at Belle Vue, Worlably outdoor and Glasgow bike show indoor. Out of these 4 only Mark Scully kept his all this time but it was involved in garage fire in 2013, but Mark true to his word brought the bike back over to Wigan and we are now working on restoring it.

The bike as we got in December 2013.

The frame and fork, despite the "smoke" finish was in very good condition and wasn't thrashed at all. The seat post and stem were stuck in so we used John Lee's services to remove these for us. 

Next we had the frame and for blasted prior to painting. Special care was taken to preserve the frame number, crispness of the welds, etc.

Looking better, eh?

 Next up the fork lower end caps need re-chroming. The decals need installing. If you look at the goto above the frames actually had 1980 frame stickers and 1981 forks stickers. We have a full range genuine RedLine restoration decals in stock.

Candy Blue

We just did these Candy Blue Hutch Pro Racer frame & fork sets. They are chrome originally - and brand new - so the chrome really shines through the translucent paint and look AMAZING. At the same time we had a handful of Tioga spiders and Hutch Aerospeed discs done in Candy Blue. These products are available for sale now at - frames are just waiting from the stickers from the US. We can do this finish on your parts, ideally over chrome but can be done over raw as well. Right now we can offer Candy Red and Candy Blue with Candy Gold, Green and Purple or follow soon.

Powdercoating Service Details

Finally after literally years of looking we are proud to announce a service we are not just happy with but over the moon with. The fact of the matter is that as BMX frames haven’t changed much in the last couple of years a lot of riders have perfect usable frames that might just look a but beat up from hard use. Our service provides an alternative to spending £500 on a new frame, fork and bars when there might be wrong with what you have apart from the cosmetics. Our aim to to provide an easy hassle-free service with excellent results.

For Standard colours our default finish is Gloss. Standard colours are available in Gloss, Satin or Matt finishes - please put a note in COMMENTS at checkout which you would like. The default is Gloss, so if we don’t get or note and you don’t let us know we’ll assume it is Gloss and that is what you will get.

This is a translucent colour that allows the surface of the item to show through. The effect work best on chrome frames (see Hutch Pro Racer frame in Candy Red or Blue for an example) or raw. Ideally this works best on a brand new frame otherwise further preparation is required thus adding cost - please contact us first to discuss. The darker the base is the darker the finished result will be.
