2010 SE Racing P.K. Ripper 26
26" PK Ripper!!!!! Was one of The Hundreds, rebuilt the way I like it!
So there's 2 bikes I always wanted as a kid but were way out of my price range: Hutch Trick Star and PK Ripper. I have a Trick Star now, so I've been after a PK Ripper. But I wanted to do something different with it. I ride my TS because it is a freestyle bike, and it rides like a Caddy. I wanted to be able to cruise my PK comfortably, and tow my kids in it, so I started looking for a 24 or 26. 24 PKs don't exist. Now I know about the SoCal and Floval Flyers, but I didn't want to re-sticker them. A fake PK? No thanks. So I started looking for one of The Hundreds 26 PKs that sold out a year or 2 back, but they were nowhere to be found or cost close to $1k, or both. And I didn't want to pay $1k for a bike that had a paint scheme I hate with parts I was going to replace anyway. Then I saw a for sale ad by falcos, and BAM there it is. He had gotten his hands on one of The Hundreds 26 PKs and had stripped the paint off and collected some damn good parts. So we worked a deal and I am off and running. I sourced one of my favorite crank sets - Sugino CT - from reservoir.grizzly, and a SWEET set of 26 Araya's w/ Suzue hubs from one of superpink's 80's GT cruisers. And away we go!
What would absolutely MAKE this build for me is a 1 1/8 GT mallet stem. Can anyone help me out with that????
