COMPLETE: 1982 SE Racing PK Ripper

Recommended Posts

Last fall I picked up this frame set and wheel set from a seller in California. He purchased a complete bike from the original owner in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. I cleaned up the pieces and rebuilt it up the way I thought it would look good. Built to resemble the manner in which any kid might have ridden it in 1982. I’m happy with how it turned out. Original everything...

  • HEADSET: Tange 
  • STEM: Tuf Neck
  • BARS: SE Racing Powerwing

Yowsers!  That's a beauty!  7x/7c combo is something you dont see too often and I dig it! That # plate is the cherry in the PK sundae! Great build Tom!

I really like the plate too. I actually thought about lifting the Kuwahara decal off and replacing with SE, but I decided to leave it as-is. Race-used with moto stickers on it. There even a "double points" sticker on it.

NICE!!! I was sick when I saw the buyer parted out an all original bike. I wanted it bad but couldn't swing it. So glad you got the frame set. that thing turned out amazing!!!

Bad ass PK. You weren't joking when you mentioned you got the bike building itch again. Another winner in your stable.
