1981 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

ELECTRIC BLUE 1981 PK RIPPER

This is my beloved  1981  pk ripper with custom Mirror decals
This is the latest build for this bike.
It was electric blue with silver deacals but i scratched the paint whilst assembling it.The paint is a closer match to the DX cranks.It is the best paint job i have seen in a long while.The pictures dont do it justice..
I have tried to use mostly shimano parts and it has'nt been a cheap build
Parts used so far
Shimano Dx cranks NOS
Shimano Dx pedals NOS
Shimano DX hubs   NOS
Shmano MX two tone lever NOS
Shimano Tourney brake caliper NOS
Araya 1 1/8 Race rims NOS
Sugino Stem NOS
Suntour clamp NOS
SE Raceing wing bars NOS
Tange 320 headset ,this was gift from a dude in the states.So thanks dude (Craig)
Just the brake cable to go
The pictures do not do this bike justice.I truly Love this bike and think it is quite unique


SOLD SOLD SOLD

1 1/8's?

The bike may be beautiful but 1 1/8's on a full size 20" is ridiculous.

Re: 1981 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

Yeah i wasnt sure when i was laceing the rims up if they would look silly, but the PK frame is so narrow the when you sit on the bike and look down at the front wheel it somehow works.Besides i wanted to achieve a race look with this bike.Trust me the red n gold PK bike will have 175'sOh and  stay tuned for my origional Ballburnished PK Looptail..:D

Re: 1981 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

I just changed the color slightly as i scratched the paint in the build.
This paint job is even better with a hint of metal flake.
I painted my Shimano 4000 the same colour...My shimano is the only one in the museum

Kindness is like Manure does You No Good unless You spread It around
bikes were made to be pedalled if we don't ride them they get sad:(!
YES I RIDE A PINK BIKE!! WANT TO MAKE SOME THING OUT OF IT!

Re: 1981 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

I used the sugino stem firsly because it is in mint condition but bit is also really lite and compact..
This bike was built as a race bike...I really love this bike...My Fave

Re: 1981 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

Beautiful build! Be proud of your work...you did a great job. I actually like the smaller rims...looks good...reminds me of some of the light-weight race bikes from BITD.

Re: 1981 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

Thanks for that..I have a picture of pk from 1980 with race wheels.
That was the look i was going for..
This would have to be one of the lightest Pk's around.
Thanks for looking...........Rerun

Re: 1981 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

awesome love the 1 1/8's they do go with the o.d tubing of the frame, as far as sugino stems go, they are some tough critters, Iused to run them all the time, never had an issue.
