I don't normally like old BMX stuff (I started riding during the mid-school years) but THIS bike is AWESOME. (plus I was born in 1980!) Sweet bike man!

Looks like a larger HT gusset and rounder dropouts than a PK... is the geometry similar?  Looks like good work - do you have any closer shots of the welds?  cool ride cool
