1996 Ruption LX
Chrome "Freestyle" frame
Nice example of a "mid-school" freestyler. All original survivor (apart from tyres maybe) I found at yet another local car boot sale. Its in very nice condition apart from the chrome plate on the cranks which has rubbed off in places. I have not even had to clean this bike, it is exactly how I found it.

I don't know very much about Ruption, but have seen a few later new school Ruptions around, and even owned a 2003 "Elevate" I picked up cheap second hand for a short time, but that was not a nice bike to ride as it was heavy & the bars had been cut down, so I sold it on. Ruption make after market parts such as wheels, stems, clamps etc, I have seen many online shops selling these on Ebay at reasonable prices, not sure if they still make complete bikes though.
Now Sold. I no longer own this bike.
