Is a Redline fifty five rare?
Maybe I should post in C&V but I thought I'd try here. I have a 1990 Redline Fifty Five mountain bike with Suntour XC Comp components that I bought at a yard sale last year. It is too tall for me so I put it on CL and got a response that it is a rare bike. I tried to find info on the web about it and couldn't find much of anything.
I'm just wondering if the guy is blowing smoke or if it is indeed rare and somewhat desireable. It may change how I try to sell it.
Anyway any info on the bike would be appreciated. It has the elevated chain stay and is in great shape.
