1990ish Redline Thirty rigid. Same frame as GT?

A recent dumpster find of mine. I'm in the process of converting it into a $0 drop bar tourer. Seems nice enough of a frame, with all the braze-ons you could hope for, forged dropouts w/integrated RD hanger. Tange MTB Cr-Mo frame/fork/headset weighs 8.5 lbs. The triple-triangle or 'Hellenic' seat stay configuration I've only seen on GTs, but I've never looked at a GT close enough to see whether or not these were one and the same. Or at least made in the same factory by the same folks. "Redline" is embossed but not pantoed on the seat stay tops.

Question: anyone know if these were made by whoever was making GTs? I can't really find anything online about this model.

I can take detail pix if anyone is interested in seeing them.



Labeling:
Redline Thirty
Made in Taiwan
Tange MTB Cr-Mo (frame and fork)
Redline 1972-1990 Engineering (Woot! Special 18th Aniversary Edition! )

Parts:
Suntour hubs
Suntour XCE drivetrain (3x7)
Suntour X-press thumbies (completely rust-locked)
Greenish ano Araya 26x1.5HE RX-7 rims

Nobody knows who made these? I know Redline was/is a well known BMX brand, and their website history section is almost entirely about their BMX brands and BMX racing.

Anyway, here's what I've done with it so far. Kinda heavy at just over 30lbs, before adding the rack on back.

Maybe if you have to know so bad, you could just e-mail them and ask?
