Another sick bike Joe! I hadn't seen too many of these and those bars and stem are sweet! I was out of the game throughout the 90's so this mid-school stuff is virgin territory for me. Sweet bike man.

Re: 1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

Thanks fellas! 

J, the bike isn't as heavy, however I think it's just because I don't have the bashguard for it.  But is way heavier than my 85 sport lol. 

Marcus, I was sheltered as a kid... Livin in a rural area we didn't see any shows or got bmx magazines.. Midschool is still pretty new to me, but as far as wilkerson airlines, it is probably one of those ground breaking midschool co.'s ya know.  Wilkerson is one of the firsts to start rider owned companies and ride the wave of street bmx.  With that and me being a big fan of 80's Haro's...it.only seemed fitting to build this.
Everyday I still learn and appreciate all aspects of bmx. smile. Enjoy fellas... And stay tuned... This riot has a darkside twin. tongue

Re: 1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

Love those Wilkerson Riot, I have one that needs to be rebuilt.  Regarding the bash guard, you can contact Ron over at 2hip, he might have a few bashguards left.  I got one about 6 months ago for my frameset.  Good luck!

Re: 1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

That is/was one of the classics of the "dark ages" of freestyle. Your bike is a stunner.
Great trip down memory lane fo sho.
Wonder what the front pegs were like. That bottema-esque fork is lowwww.
