1983 600a

1983 was the first year of the MX-III. Sorta, kinda. Till then all frames were Prolines or MX-II’s. Sorta, Kinda. When Redline first began sourcing complete bikes they got the parts from Japan but all the frame sets were made in the USA. Tose first complete bikes were called MX-III’s. But they really had a MX-II frame set. Then in 1983 they debuted an all new frame the MX-III. Follow? The MX-III frame would come on different complete bike models over the years. The first was the 1983 600a.

  1. I live in Cape Town, South Africa, and got a 1983 Redline 600a Series Three bmx.
    I won it in a competition in 1983 and never parted with the bmx, although I had many offers from people that wanted to buy it. I am the only person here that I know off that’s got this bmx.

    The bmx is still in a good condition but now I want to strip the decals and re-chrome the bmx and restore it to its original state, but before I do that I need to find a new set of original decals and also new grips for the handlebars.
    Where would I be able to get hold of it, because here in South Africa I can’t find any, and I searched on the net as well.

    If you can help me it would be great!!

  2. Great memories…..!
