Crusty Morning find! 1979 PK Ripper

I had a buddy send me a link to this, made the call and snagged it up this morning. 4hr round trip was definitely worth it!

1979 frame (no serial number)
Unstamped Landing Gear fork

Possibly a early repaint....1979 wouldn't have LG forks or these decals but I'm happy to have snagged it before the usual Facebook/Craiglists whores grabbed it up! lol

Bunch of 90s crap parts!

Shit is still out there! Just gotta look for it!

Re: Crusty Morning find! 1979 PK Ripper

Got the cranks out, stem and post are soaking.

This is a weird one. I want to say early repaint The primer in the BB is super flaky, no signs of any color in there whatsoever. 

Let me know what you all think. This was a 2 owner bike and nothing was said about it being redone, just that he remembered cut the decals like that and then he got bigger and moved into a freestyle bike (which in also picked up, 85 GT Performer) Its definitely been restickered for sure.

No cracks in the usual areas, paint shines very nice. I also did find some sort of # stamped on the BB, too short to be a SS or a phone number. 

It's still dope!
