Hi All,

Got this from Sparky in a trade we did some time back and have finally got it finished.

I wanted something a little different and ended up basing it on a PK Ripper I had seen... The theme was red and gold.

I had an absolute pig of a time putting this together. The cranks caused mee no end of grief. For some reason the DB cranks wouldn't fit so I had to bang some Maxxy Cross cranks on.....
