These will become a very big hit once they are available.

Re: Wilkinson Airlines Instagram page

I asked Ron Wilkerson if he was bringing WAL in 1999 when he called the shop I worked at trying to sell 2 hip stuff. He said he was bringing it back... I guess it was a 20 year plan... lol

I'd seriously consider one of these if it ever happens, just because!

Lol really? 20 year plan! Look at it this way,Ron will sell every single one he can make.His WAL stuff is highly desireable,even if it comes back as a retro inspired line.

Re: Wilkinson Airlines Instagram page

It must be a freestyle thing.  I'm not sure his bikes would sell to anyone under the age of forty.  It's always been a pet peeve of mine, Wilkenson Airlines abbreviated is WA, not WAL.  You can't just breakdown a word to suit your abbreviation needs Ron.  Check out S&M's Instrgram page.

Lets just say Ron gets 50 F&F sets made,he will sell everyone of them! All of them going to people roughly in their late 30's to 50's.I also read somewhere that he cannot use WAL due to his divorce from his wife,being the reason she owns half the company and he gets whatever profits from it even to this day.

Re: Wilkinson Airlines Instagram page

If he's doing it, it's strictly for money and to cash in on the midschool nostalgia buzz. 2Hip died a sad death a few years ago. The exact reasons unknown. Ran it's course I guess.

If you look at the wording on some of the IG posts, is it Ron talking in the 3rd person, someone bought the rights to the name......or just a chancer creating a bullshit account? Time will tell either way.


Nothing to see here. Move along.

Everything is a cash grab in this hobby/lifestyle known as bmx! Nobody does things for free.I am just glad there might be a chance for a WAL retro frame and fork.

Re: Wilkinson Airlines Instagram page

It would be awesome, but Ron isn’t known for getting things done super fast. Even when it was still running, the 2-hip site was updated semi-annually at best.  I think he mostly runs his restaurant now.
