PK Ripper I picked up from original owner...

Recommended Posts

Pretty cool piece I picked up, but it has some changes as it sits here...

 

It hadn't been ridden in decades probably and had gone down hill mechanically and nobody could fix it it seems... so I got it with non functioning drive train and brakes. These bars were some I had already.

 

Whatever... wiped it down a bit and it started to come back to life, put the 1 piece on as the crankset was kind of a basket case and had been set up without enough clearance causing the crank arm to hit the chain stay all the time. Left a gouge on the frame.  Pretty dumb. Oddly my other candy blue PK has bad chain rub on the inside of the chain stays too.  

 

Anyway... after cleaning it up and all... it looks pretty killer.  I'm missing an essential piece to this brake set, I'm always missing either a tool or an essential part it seems.

So I bought this bike from Steve and changed some stuff. As he stated, it had some issues with brakes, cranks and pedals. I tore it down, scrubbed the frame and fork with rubbing compound. polishing compound and wax and scrubbed all the parts.  I repacked the headset, bottom bracket and hubs and trued the rims. Put on a set of Race Inc bars, Ame bubble Font Tri's, Shotgun 2 seat, KKT Lightning pedals, DC MX1000 brake caliper, cable and Tech 3 lever,  and Takagi spider. True 80s Cheng Shin Comp 3s (big and little), Xcaliber seat clamp and SE pads. I reused the SE seat post, 44T chain ring. Tuf Neck stem, Takagi 175mm cranks, loosebal BB and Araya 7X rims.

Turned out sweet. The blue bars looked good on it. Any ideas what they were?

The blue bars were wayyyy to beat finish wise for me. I have no clue what they were nor does Steve. I sold them on Ebay to some dude in Switzerland or somewhere over there.
