Not too many OG Red PK's floating around! Glad to have it in my SE Racing collection!
As many know, I am a HUGE SE Racing FREAK!!! The story on how I acquired this frameset is, I ended picking up some very nice SE Rad Pads and decided to sell them. A member here contacted me and wanted the pads BAD!! I didn't really want to budge on my price, so he told me he had something I may want. He sent me pics...i almost pooped my pants. A OG red PK doesn't pop up everyday, so we exchanged #'s and shot the crap for awhile. We ended up agreeing on a price/trade and met up at a bar to exchange the items and drink some beers! I ended up making a new friend, came home with a new project and he left happy with the pads he wanted along with a few bucks!
HUGE thanks to Jaf for the opportunity to put this into my collection!
When I got this thing home, I wanted to build something REAL...something that you would see at the track, not all dolled up with a wallet and credit card thrown at it. Well here it is...my 1981/82 OG Red PK RIPPER...My budget racer!!!
