1980 V Bar ad

This ad with Greg Hill shows the 1980 bike and bars. The V bar came in two sizes. Proline which was 26″ wide in those years and the Microline at 23″ wide. In the ad Greg is holding the Microline. The Microline came stock on early complete MX-II’s.

1989 models

1988 and 89 were slow years for Redline. Their advertisements rarely showed their bike models. They had just two models they mention in 88 and just 3 in 89.
The three 89 (Full size) bikes they list are
700EXL (4130)

One of the bikes was Tri Moly. Probably the 400D and the 390 was Mild Steel, but that’s just a guess. Again the ads were horrible and I cant find a catalog.
