1980's BMX Bike

How do I find out make/model of an old BMX bike? Only marking on back of frame #536, Redline 175 on pedal.

The Redline 175 is probably on the crank arm. Itís probably 175mm long one piece crank.

I had a Redline when I was around 14. I really liked it.

I highly doubt your bike is rare or worth a lot if thatís what youíre after.

Post a picture and see if anyone can help you narrow it down a bit.

I know you can't post pictures yet, really hard without them and nearly impossible with such little information to go on

Older BMX bikes don't usually have vins so it's hard to ID them when the stickers come off.

Try looking around the neck of the forks, the inside and outside of the frame where the rear wheels bolt down and also underneath the frame rails for any stamps of MFG.
