Re: NOS 85 PK RIPPER

Sal's distant cousin - Zhang Wei - is now making these frames (and other fabulous SE products.)  wink


Carpet queens are silly. It's a bicycle...it's meant to be ridden.

I wish Sal would drop dead.

If this Sal guy keeps pumping out the fake stuff, why has someone not paid him a visit? I am sure there are guys that want to break his hands.

I wonder if Sal's body is stronger than the frames he is making??.....
Maybe someone will put that to the test!.....yikeslollollol
See what dents 1st.

Even though we know whenever there's collector's there's people who take advantage to make a buck, it still makes me sick to hear stories like this.  Reminds me of that feeling when you find your bike was stolen...

At least he's got some nice frames out of it.
But still, not knowing the whole truth up front is whack!

I read op plan to finish one black with gold parts. Will still be rad to see that. smile

Here is the gold one

Those are stunning builds! They are actually rarer than a true 85, only 5 known to exist...facts! I think this thread may have made the bikes infamous and may incite demand...especially if sals hands do get broke.
You never know

lollollol

So no serial 85's = pretty much fake?  If "Sal" is such a skilled fabricator, why didn't he stamp these with fake serial as well? I mean, if you're gonna go all out to fake something, why leave out the most important part? So in a way, it's still easy to identify fakes since they have no serial.

True. Had Sal Put Serial #'s on them the Forgery Woulda been Complete. Maybe A Little Morality on Sal's Part? Had I Wanted a Mint PK-I'd Would've Got Decent(Rider) Ones, Had the Flaws Fixed and Refinish Them As OG(As Close as Possible).

Protection against litigation?
