Finally...85 PK Ripper

Recommended Posts

After a 20 yr hiatus from BMX,I returned a few months ago with a need to build a few Old School bikes.

In these few short months since my return,I was able to score on a few nice bikes.

 

Fast forward a few months and roughly 12 GT's later,I find myself wanting more then just your typical GT Basher.

 

To make a long story short...What I wanted was a Loop and instead settled on an even rarer one year only straight chain stay F/F PK

 

At first,I was bummed out that the frame was Professionally painted instead of Powdered...Looking at it now,I couldn't be happier

 

 

LMK what you think???????????

 

 

BTW,can someone give me a parts list of what might go on this 85?

 

I already have an NOS Tioga Bear trap headset and have my eyes set on a some 401 Flights,Bullseye hubs and UKAI or ARAYA hoops..... What tires,bars,seat etc etc etc ??

 

Thanks in advance

looks like a great starting point.

as for as parts go sounds like your on the right track.

and just fyi there's a haro #plate on that auction site that would

go good with your decals.

Interesting color choices...there certainly won't be another one like it around.

 

I think it's going to come out pretty cool.

I just sold one on this site a couple of months ago. For being such a rare frame, I think I ended up selling it for $250 F/F shipped, after dropping it from $325 because no one showed any interest. Where were you? :)

 

Here is a pic:

I like how smooth that silver looks. What a gorgeous project, and with the afformentioned parts, it will be even better! As for as awesomeness and correctness goes, your 85 PK blows my brownie out of the oven.......

Great looking frame. I am digging the silver paint. :32: That bike will be shweeeeet when finished. Post some pictures when it's done. Does anyone know how many of the straight chain stay PK Rippers were made, or how how many months they were produced? Here are a couple of pictures of my 85 straight chain stay PK.

WOW!!!.. interesting color combo. Very nice!!!

 

 

 

Does anyone know what decal set came on 85's? Did it depend on what color the frame was?

 

Thanks in advance
