1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

Includes WAL forks and bash guard.

Here is my 93 WAL Riot complete build. I have wanted one of these since they first came out so was really lucky to get a frame and correct fork off of Ebay earlier this year. I've built it up will all the parts I would have done back in the 90's, and the only thing I would like to add at some point is a 2-Hip vise stem. Aside from that I am really happy with how it turned out.
Full spec is as follows...Frame: Wilkerson Airlines Riot with bashFork: Wilkerson Airlines RiotBars: Wilkerson Airlines San QuentinHeadset: Tioga beartrapStem: DK invertedGyro: Odyssey Gyro IILevers: Dia Compe Tech 77Front Brake: ACS BoaRear Brake: AD 990Girps: ODI longneck (real ones not those rubbish ST ones)Seat Clamp: Fusion double boltSeat Post: Odyssey 22.2Seat: GT freestyleCranks: Redline FlightSprocket: Odyssey Black WidowPedals: Peregrine SealedChain: KMC ZWheels: Peregrine Super ProTyres: Odyssey Bare FeetPegs: Odyssey Hollow Bullet

Re: 1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

Very Cool and inspiring mid-school build.
I am happy to say I finally have my WAL forks on the way!! thanks to hboost
Mine will look similar with Chrome frame and fork, and black bash guard..

Shad over at Goodsbmx has a black and a red one he is working on.
I guess I will have to take some shots..Wonder how many were made?

He was kind enough to sell me his chrome frame. I have the san quentin bars ready to go too.

Pretty small club here.. only 15 of us so far..

Re: 1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

Thanks for the kind words. Yea these are awesome bikes and not many of them seem to have survived. Id love to see some pics of Shads Red one. I believe he got his F+F NOS from Japan. I bet that one is going to look awesome when finished.

Here are some more pics of my build.

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!


I believe Jesus would have rode a GT Performer....carpenters can't afford Hutch.

While urinating, Chuck Norris is easily capable of welding titanium.

Driving a fast Honda is like coming out of the closet....sure it surprises you at first, but in the end you`re still gay.

Re: 1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

Re: 1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

Thanks guys. Im blown away by all the compliments big_smile. I still want to add a 2 Hip vise stem to get it exactly how I want it. I would also like to fit an early fusion sprocket, but as I wasn't able to find one I just went with the odsy I had in my stash of parts. I will add both of those as and when I find them.

Very cool build... Attached is a photo of My Build, there are some photos of RonW. and myself, when he was out here in Mass. to sign my Riot. I was around these for years when i rode for 2-hip from 99-05 and back them i never even thought to collect the WAL stuff.... ohh well, thats what makes these builds fun, finding all the parts you need, parts of BMX History
