Re: 1/3 Scale PK Ripper Project

thanks for your comments guys, I dont actualy even own a looptail ripper but my good friend ollie (pk ripper man) does. 

If you look in the "most faved" section, the bike on top of the pile is his and it was sprayed white by myself. i also painted the chainring, seatpost clamp and hubs orange.

This bike was my original inspiration for the project. I've gone for loads of different componements mainly because I wanted to build a more standard looking Ripper, more like how your average Pk Ripper would have been built back in the day.

cool, maybe one of those guys would commission me to make one for them.  Or i'm gonna end up homeless shining shoes and selling miniature bmx seats:lol:

Think small scale production; you could sell many of these.


I might not deliver when I say I will, but when I do it's always right on time.

Re: 1/3 Scale PK Ripper Project

It doesn't need to have a longer steerer to to put in a headseat. trust me, i'm not gonna go to all the trouble or making this bike and mess that up.

The big bolt that goes through the stem and into the steerer will have the headset around it. It doesn't make any difference how long the fork steerer is.

Heres the deal, I'm a model maker ...

If anyone wants to talk to me about doing one for them...

Joe, that's the best model work I've seen in a long time. My formal training and degree is in Industrial Prototyping, and only a few schools in the United States have a specific degree program for this. I can fully appreciate the level of craftsmanship and expertise that you have applied to this project. I have only seen a handful of people who had the talent to the level that you do. I wish you were in the States because I would seriously be interested in hiring you. My shop is specific to confidential product development/prototyping and most of my customers are medical or technology-related.

so it will be functionally working steering mechanism?   i know you know what your doing but it just dont look right to me..

it works as in when you turn the bars the forks go with them. the headset won't have bearings. it will be just like putting some washers in there.   

I tell you what, I'll do the headset next so you'll be able to get some sleep when you see it;)

I could make and sell these as kits but it would still cost a fair bit as there is a lot of work involved.
