This 1979 (PK2) PK Ripper was found in the attic of a house over in Butler, New Jersey USA. Been there since 1985. 

This one was a bit of a mess though. Badly Spray Bombed in black and could see that it wasn’t in its original get up, but could see the Red it should have been wearing. 

So out came the stripper and once the black started to come off, we were then struck with a bit of yellow (possibly primer) before getting back to bare metal. There was evidence of its original colour still in the BB and around some of the welds.  I’m not a fan of refinished frames so attempted to hand polish it to as near burnished finish as I can get. Lovely frame, rear drops are a bit chewed but no repairs. 

Spent a few hours going over and over with Autosol and microfibre cloth just cleaning her up slowly. I decided to go in that direction as I prefer bare metal/chrome frames. Gold headset swapped out for Silver and the forks got a clean up. Then just popped the original SE decals on.

Plenty of pictures for ya.
