Re: Crusty Morning find! 1979 PK Ripper

Sweet! Keep hoping something like this pops up locally, but I’d have to see it 1/10th of a second after it was posted to have a chance at it. tongue

Nice find.The white flake in the bb shell could possibly be the primer?

Re: Crusty Morning find! 1979 PK Ripper

All the colored SE bikes I own have color inside the BB.  If it is indeed a repaint, it was done well and done early in its life.  Plenty of chips and marks from being in a bike rack on the back of a car/truck and no sign of it being any other color. 

It's still cool as shit.

Re: Crusty Morning find! 1979 PK Ripper

Just needs era correct parts on it and it would be a great bike to ride and show off.  The color red reminds me of a Chevrolet color called Rio Red.

Very cool brother.
That paint looks great and well done.  I'm thinking that it might just be OG colors. 

Awesome


If winning isn't everything then why do they keep score?

If I hear the words "RARE", "GRAIL", or "SCORE" one more time, I'm gonna f'n puke. ALSO, NOS is NOT a condition description. Being NOS has NOTHING to do with the actual condition of the part.

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

Nice grab! It did look funny with the 90's parts on it, looks awesome now since you broke it down and cleaned up the frame and fork.
