Out off all my bikes this is my favorite.
Ron Wilkerson has always been one of my favorite riders. I rode a Riot when I was a teenager but did not
have a part list to match as they were impossible to get in Australia, there were not that many fame and fork sets either
and not many now.

Re: 1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

holy abubuca! beautifully done. I purchased a riot frameset in jan 92 built with super pros, dk stem, 401 flights, fusion pegs, and gt 4 piece bars, tech 77, boas, etc, but this one of yours looks better now than what mine did when new! awesome bike. I could never quite handle the left field geometry on the frame, and had to work my way to find a use for it, it ended uo being really nice for long distance dirt jumping, the forks on the other hand, proved to be my favorite forks ever, and I rode those until 2007, the first gens used to crack at the crown,, I broke 3 of those, and then resorted to changing the steerer tube altogether, that worked, and one of those is still riding around somewhere,  a black fork that some dude stole in the bronx from ron himself in 1990, he gave me the broken forks 5 years later, and I fixed them when I came back to the island. the 2nd gens were better, the 1994 models, I ended up buying 3 from danny parks and never broke a single one, ended up selling them here on the museum circa 2008-09, I Should at least kept an NOS one I had, but whatever, the fun is in the hunt, enjoy your gem!!

That right there is the total real life definition of mid school as I see it.  Nice. cool

I'm not a mid0schooler much but anyone can see the rad in that.

Re: 1991 Wilkerson Airlines Riot

another great thing about this bike is that it sports items from other eras, as most real mid school bikes. I ran dx's, gt mallet stems from 85, and 401 flights and power series cranks, kashimax seats etc, well into the 90s
