WILKERSON AIRLINES (WAL) RIOT - Lets See Em! Need Some Ideas!

I've been killing to build something for a while, but have had brain freeze for a while.  I'd really like to start something and have a few framesets here.  Right now, I've been looking at my WAL.  I picked it up as shown below and have since found the correct forks.  I have seem the 8 (Or So) that are currently in the museum and loke some of the ideas.  Lets see some more!  Here's what I have to start with (Plus the correct forks)i

Having the project is what makes me happy, finishing it isn't something I think about.

A WAL is on my short list as well. You're a lucky dude to have that one. Good luck with the build.


One of the many reasons for the bewildering and tragic character of human existence is the fact that social organization is at once necessary and fatal. Men are forever creating such organizations for their own convenience and forever finding themselves the victims of their home-made monsters.

The Big Boy is the closest I can get to having a Riot.

I'd like a Riot or Riot 2 in nice shape (difficult to find in nice shape).

Re: WILKERSON AIRLINES (WAL) RIOT - Lets See Em! Need Some Ideas!

Thats gonna give me some ideas!  Thanks! 

My observations:
1) I like San Quentin Bars
2) I hate 1 piece cranks
3) I don't really like the look of ACS 55 stems
4) I have more of the parts I want to use than I thought  - I only need grips, calipers, cranks, and seatpost clamp!

This ones coming along.  I have everything except red or red/black sleeve  Mushroom (Or Mushroom 2) grips and Peregrine 2nd gen cranks to finish.  I'm crossing my fingers that the grips pop up.  The cranks are out there.

Re: WILKERSON AIRLINES (WAL) RIOT - Lets See Em! Need Some Ideas!

i like the wilkerson set-up. where i came from, if you weren't loaded, one piece cranks were a fact of life. seems they aren't represented enough in todays '80's' builds. they were competent cranks too.
