2008 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

Well here it is. I entered this bike in the museum a few years ago when I got it, frame only. It originally had the gold decals. My mom bought me this for Christmas in 2008. It was my second chance at a build and a bike I had wanted as a kid. I told her all the things I had planned for it and she humored me as mothers do. Knowing that I have three daughters and a son she probably figured it would always just be a frame. That's what it was until 2011. I finally got the parts to do the complete build and this is the end result. I so wish that my mom could have seen this but I lost her to cancer in 2009. About 9 months after she bought me this frame. Oddly enough I survived a year long battle with cancer myself in 2006. I know she is  proud of what I built and I am dedicating it to her. I love you mom and miss you. You always took care of me and helped me make my dreams come true. John

She is in a better place, that we can be sure of smile
I'm glad that although the PK took a while in the build, it was very worth it in the end.

Re: 2008 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

No problemo, you're very welcome cool
I like builds that are unique, and its difficult to do a green combo right.
Your PK hits both in one go!
I've got a build coming up with a bit of green too, if all goes to plan, but different again:D

Thanks Mick I totally agree. Watching some one you love suffer sucks. I appreciate the comments on the Ripper. I am going to be doing a little changing on it. Changing the seat to a green Kashimax Aero and the tires to some black and gum wall Snake belly's Will post some new picks when its done. Crue big_smile
