1982 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

Childhood Bike Rebuild

If my memory serves me correct, this bike is almost exact to the PK I had as a kid.
* 82 PK Ripper Looptail Frame,
* Landing Gear forks
* Redline 400's
* Sugino 45T Chainwheel
* Pro Neck
* Elina Seat
* Race Inc. Seatpost
* UKAI Speedlines/Sunshine Hubs
* Comp III Style Fat/Skinny Tires
* Dia Compe MX1000/Tech 3 Lever
* Dia Compe MX Hinged Seat Clamp
* Mushroom ODI Grips
* SE Powerwing Expert Bars
* Crupi Pro Rounds
* Hatta Headseat
Thanks to all who have helped me with parts and questions.  I simply love this bike.  Rides like a dream.

Great job! The first PK I ever saw looked exactly like yours. Chrome and blue, just like a PK should look. Your restoration is excellent!

Always looking for Cook Bros. stuff, vintage SE stuff,  MCS 6 bolt Super stems,  and Race Inc. Leading Edge/Cycle Pro/BMX innovations 20" forks.  All NOS or in very nice condition.
