Cheers Mat. I'm trying to cut down on my 8) 8) 8) 8) emoji's!!

Slight update pics.....
Not quite finished but nearly there.
Wasn't happy about the colour difference of the bars to the frame, so I thought the easiest way was to add more coats of Neon orange to the bar. They were definitely slightly tighter going through the stem clamp now! Photo's taken indoors some hoping on getting some finished pics in natural light to show off the 'Zing' of the neon
Crantinope has sorted me out with some ace M735 XT pedals (Thanks again!) - just waiting on some neon orange toe straps to arrive and I'll be sorted.

Hoping to get this wrapped up by this weekend, but you know what they say about best laid plans and all that!

Cheers.

That bike is amazing! I do have 6 of those "Browning" suspension forks myself- but they are the 20" version for the Redline Platinum BMX. I had a 26" Redline Platinum at one point, which is supposed to have the 26" Browning fork too but most of them never came with it.

If anyone knows of one for sale, even just the fork, please reach out!

1992 Redline Platinum BMX


That's actually my bike! I have since gone to a silver sprocket and upgraded to Araya wheels with Crupi hubs, however. And yes I can shed some light, very few of the 26" MTB Redline Platinums actually were made with the Browning fork. I only know of a few. Also, I think they only made 1 GT Psyclone with that fork, it belongs to a member on here.

Hi. All.

Now finished!

Tyres swapped out to slightly narrower Tioga 1.95 Wonder Dawgs from Panaracer smoke 2.1's. Still awaiting the orange toe straps.

Now need to ride it to see how the Browning fork is working!

More pics...

Cheers.
