REDLINE MX III 700

NZ made by Healing
OWNER: AndyDiamond

Healing made Redline MXIIIs under license from Redline USA in NZ.
The import duty on imported bikes was very high at the time so this was a way around it.
Check the 'catalouges and flyers' section on this site to see a brochure with the Redline in it.
Healing offered one model only - the full spec MXIII 700.
This was inentical to the US model of the same name.
(The MXIII 600 model in the US had a one piece crank and some lesser parts).
However, while the US model was offered in different colours the NZ version was offered in chrome with red components only.
It was a very popular seller in NZ and sold above the Supermax price point as Healing's top-of-the-line BMX bike.

This is a 'side project' for me.
Steve88 came across this NZ made Healing Redline frame and fork
It was in pretty bad condition.
I didn't want to spend any $$ on re-chroming so I had the frame and fork powdered white for $80.
Of course NZ made Redlines never came in white but the US ones did (as well as blue, red and black).
I manage to keep the 'NZ-made by Healing' sticker that goes on the seat tube near the BB.
The other parts (mostly NOS) I picked out to be similar to a Redline spec with some tweaks.
However, this was a 'budget build'.
