The seat tube has been repaired. Post is prolly stuck too. The seat also looks uncomfortable.


That is so funny that i seriously am not even laughing.  I am just sitting here dumbfounded and speechless.  Jaw dropped, like a mentally challenged person looking at a Ferris Wheel.

Rear triangle looks off...might just be the camera angle. Just be sure to check it. Good luck!


I ship to Australia. PM for details.

Re: possible old school PK RIPPER score..Need your thoughts

I look at these beat up old PK frames, and if it needs a repair, I just assume $200 in repairs. $100 for powder. $50 for stickers. Shipping to/from C4 is $50. So, $400 to get it right, on top of your up front cost. And I'm not sure if $100 for powder is high enough.

I just don't think they pencil out most of the time, unless they are rare and pre-SN, or round top tubes.

I bet on eBay, probably a half dozen not needing repair for $400 or so.

So, unless it's a rare model, or, you want to build a carpet queen, or, want to piss money away, or, you have a relative that's a skilled aluminum welder, I'd avoid it unless you can pull it at $50.


Whenever someone says, "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart," all I hear is, "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart."

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile
