Re: If you could go Back in Time What bikes would you have bought New ?

Working in a shop I think I owned my fair share of most of bikes I wanted or at least frame and fork sets. So I guess mine would be like a previous post and go back and not have sold a few. My earlier race inc., PK ripper or quad angle

Re: If you could go Back in Time What bikes would you have bought New ?

To answer the question, I would have bought the black PK Ripper looptail hanging in the bikeshop with black and gold parts.  It was one of the most stunning bikes I ever laid eyes on (back to a then 12 year old version of myself).  Granted I didn't have the cash for it, but then again, I didn't even try to shake down my parents for it...maybe it would have worked, who knows? 

Like others, I was always trading up my frames.  I wish I hung on to my silver PK Ripper.  But if I didn't trade it for my 82 Skyway, I wouldn't have traded the Skyway for my 83 Quad that I still have today.  No complaints, but I loved that PK!  But, I love my Quad.  Time for my meds......

Re: If you could go Back in Time What bikes would you have bought New ?

Early 80's Profile Champ Pro. Without a doubt. Decked with Profile parts, stem, hubs, cranks, bars.

I don't remember seeing one of those in all my racing years. Which is kind of strange, Riverside BMX in Roseville was a big track back then. I'm pretty sure its still around even after all these years.

Always loved the Redline RL 20 II in Radberry and Hazard Yellow as well. But that was simply because racers always wanted to be freestyle riders and vice versa I think. cool


Ummmmm..........Yeah.

One of my primary race bikes was the RS1 from 87, red/black/chrome. Decked too, what a bike. The other was the Harry Leary Turbo, pure love right there.

Re: If you could go Back in Time What bikes would you have bought New ?

To be honest it would have to be the same, cos my parents would not be buying any of that "But I have come back in time, and full grown men in the future will be all over these kids bikes and they will be worth a fortune" shit!  big_smile

Bit if I did just answer the question, no matter how it is posted, as a 12 year old kid no one would have swayed me from a PK Ripper, was my favourite then and still is now.

As soon as I read the title this is what came to mind. As far as bicycles go, probably a custom 2000 Standard STA with my own selection of Mid School tank parts. cool
