thought Id share a pic or two of my 91 Pk Ripper -
I had this frame from new, it was the polished version, but as I had two of them I decided to replicate the race bike I always lusted after in 1991 - which was the anodised Purple version.
Not everyones cup of tea but I built this as a reflection of what wa going on in racing at the time.
SO, I had the frame anodsied, managed to source some original silver crip decals [not repros]
and fitted the frame out with entirely new old stock parts from that era..
here's the parts list
Se Racing 1991 pk ripper XL frame, 1" headtube
