2008 SE Racing P.K. Ripper
SE Racing PK Ripper Retro custom build.
This is my 2008 PK Ripper Retro. I bought the frame only for 60 bucks from a guy that lived in a trailer in a real bad part of town. He had a bunch of cool BMX stuff and I ended up buying a old Mongoose Motomag frame and a complete Floval Flyer from him as well. He was a super cool guy just down on his luck.
He said the money that I gave him was going towards a down payment on a house of his own. We exchanged numbers and now talk on a routine basis about BMX and whatever else is on our mind. That may be part of the reason that this is my favorite bike! I've met some of my best friends through this website and my local BMX track.
Here's the parts breakdown:
-08 SE Racing PK Ripper Retro frame
-08 Landing Gear fork with the correct decals. (I got lucky as hell finding these!)
-SE retro padset
-SE Lightning Blitz seat
-SE fluted seat post
-SE seat post clamp
-Sugino chain ring and Power disc
-Tuff Wheel II's new school with sealed bearings. (these are nice! They spin forever and are fairly light)
-Gold Anodized Kool Kaps for the cool old school look
-SE 3 piece crankset with Wellgo pedals
-Cheng Shin Comp III's Skinny, Fat
This was a very fun build since all the parts were new and didn't need any restoration at all like most of my bikes do. It's nice to see results without all the time, work and money once in a while. Lol!
I'm so happy that SE builds this line of bikes for the guys like me that love the PK's but have outgrown the original Loopy. I ride this bike all the time and all the young kids think it's dope..
