1989 SE Racing P.K.R.-XL
I have wanted a PK since I first laid eyes on one back in the middle school days... in 2005 I got into building bikes and was checking on ebay for bmx stuff to rebuild an old Haro I had in the garage from bitd. I wound up typing in PK Ripper and was shocked to see the high prices on framesets etc. I couldn't see myself dropping that kind of loot on one. I ended up later with a BEAT XL frame that I had sent out to The Frame Doctor for repairs that included dropout refinishing, head tube replacement, and filling of many gouges and grind marks. then he sent it out for a stunning black powder coating job. it turned out amasing after it was finished. today I finished putting it together and it looks so friggin hot! please everyone let me know what you think... parts list: frame: PK Ripper XL 21" TT fork: 1" SE Landing Gear bars/grips/ends: SE Racing w/ ATI Pistol Pete grips, VG bar ends stem: black DK headset/lock: Tioga Beartrap/ VG h/s lock brakes/lever: Odyssey Pitbull w/ VG cam, VG lever, odyssey cable seat/guts/post: Selle San Marco, VG guts, GT post wheels/tires: Sun Ryno rims w/ GT Mowhawk hubs & double butted stainless spokes, Comp III rubber cranks/pedals/sprocket: GT/Profile 185s w/hop-up &Ti spindle, Crupi Ti rounds, VG 44t sprocket padset: Zeronine others: KMC chain, VG axle nuts, VG bullet valve caps. word!
