1983 A.W.S. P.K. Ripper

1983 A.W.S.     New Zealand made PK Ripper  replica.

Produced from 82 for two or three years as a cheaper option to the real thing, either in a polished or satin finish, and only as a frameset.

Only really suitable for lighter riders due to the lack of bracing around the seatmast, the majority of them snapped.

They weren't made in great numbers, but more were produced than the market required, so as freestyle found its way over here in the mid 80's the owner flicked off the remaining 40 or so frames for $15 each to get rid of them.

 

Not many of these survived still intact..   This is #041
