Do all these 'limited' 2019 PK's got issues, or just a certain batches/bikes?

Any how many produced?

Re: 2019 Perry Kramer P.K. Ripper Looptail Frame Pictures

The fact is Se Racing has been pumping out Aluminium frames for over 40 years .  They know what these frames need as far as hardware to keep damage from happening .  If they can't keep the little china men in line then it's time for a change.  Like made in the USA.  Those factory's over seas suck and don't care.   It's time to bring production back home.   It can be done .  It takes balls and a real company owner to get it done.   Hey Todd Lyons what's it gonna be serious quality and made in the USA or damaged goods and out of control city rides.  I collect SE Racing but I'm not impressed by your new street Image.  Your far from your roots.  What's it gonna be SE ? What's it gonna be ?

Re: 2019 Perry Kramer P.K. Ripper Looptail Frame Pictures

I was going to buy one of these rippers, but when I found out the wheels weren’t Graphs I got my deposit back.  Now after seeing the issues they have, I’m even happier I passed on it. 

BTW, all aluminum SE’s have that issue with the rear dropouts.  I know my local bike shop adds some washers to try & protect them from getting any worse.  It’s a problem from both the metal being too soft and Ideal (the manufacter) not adjusting the guns the use to tighten them up with.

Re: 2019 Perry Kramer P.K. Ripper Looptail Frame Pictures

Two of my favorite brands SE Racing and Skyway . Now it's clear I can't take a chance of buying either brand. I have 12 SE bikes from 1981 - 2014 and I'm not planning on spending one more dime.

SE sucks and I wish they didn't even use the name SE anymore cause its nothing to do with the real SE anymore .Its just bashing one  of the coolest brands in bmx history's name .There like Ford Pintos with a Lamborghini body kit .

Those rivets are unacceptable even for show. That's Skyways new ownership and quality control. As for SE Todd is only a manager out of courtesy and his buy out. I wouldn't expect much from him.

What About the White Mike Buff Pk, Did It Have Problems Also.   I’ve Never Owned a Se Bike Till Recently.  My Daughter Has The Lil Quad.  Her Bike is perfect, I took it completely apart and Looked at Everthing.  It Turned Out To Be a Nice Piece Of Kit.  Only thing I did Notice was the Crank Bolts was way way to Tight , Other Than That It was Perfect. no markings on the Dropouts of any kind, No Flaws

On the new Skyways those flanges are just for show.

Sure? Can see the axle through the slots...what im trying to say, is that unlike unflanged skyways, where you have a lot more material around the center of the wheel, providing some support to the bearings, axles...these flanges 'appear' to be intended to support the axles/bearings.

Yes, these flanges are certainly meant to keep everything together and support the whole wheel! I don't know what's going to happen if the axle is going to be the main support for these flanges instead of axle and rivets together. I can imagine when you go rad on these, first play wil occur and then fatigue and then error/damage/accidents.

These are actually stiffer wheels then old school graphite's with campy hubs, I compared them.

I tell you on some of my bikes I had to use an automotive breakerbar to loosen the rearaxle, that says it all.

I already removed the axle to check for play, but if you look closely you see the holes of these flanges are tapered, so when the rivets are pressed they expand a bit into that taper, that's what's holding them for now instead of the mushroom cap.

Yes, have a look at my Mike Buff. It took months and a lot of pressure to get the issues solved.
Yes you can have a good example, I had a flawless OM Flyer delivered to me from abroad so they do exist. lol

I would say they are fine for show, because you have to look close to see the bad rivets, I didn't notice them while unpacking the bike.

Re: 2019 Perry Kramer P.K. Ripper Looptail Frame Pictures

When I bought my red and white PK Ripper back in 2009 it arrived with the red pedals looking like they were used and all chipped up,the rest of the bike was ok but "Colored Tuff's" did absolutely nothing about it and never got back to me about the problem. Horrible customer service and I will never deal with them again.

Re: 2019 Perry Kramer P.K. Ripper Looptail Frame Pictures

DutchRipper,
FYI the gold SKYWAY logo on the new tuffs are just a gold decal.

I have a SKYWAY rivet machine in my workshop and I am happy to re-rivet your tuffs at NO CHARGE. If you pay for the Shipping
I am NOT endorsed or related to skyway, but i have repaired and re-riveted hundreds and hundreds of them over the years.

How kind and AWESOME it is, that there is an enthusiastic person like you around with a SKYWAY rivet machine in his workshop, that offers me help to transform my show wheels into wheels that can be used. big_smile
