2009 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

My first custom built bike since 1982

This bike was inspired by some bikes I saw in the museum when I first joined. I was flipping around and immediately faved some member's bikes: restoredude's Quad, calisplit and cappy227's P.K.'s: I noticed a pattern! LOL! I immediately set out to build my version.

The frame was acquired as a single piece from an online seller, then I slowly added everything else over about 3 months. The Landing Gear originally had black decals.

I'm pretty proud of this as my first custom build since about 1982.

I might eventually swap out the Skyways for some rims/hubs to lighten it up and race this thing. It's pretty light right now with the Tuffs. For now, though, it's complete.
