Classic PK Ripper XL

pkxl3We get SE fans from around the world sending in photos all the time. Once in a while something makes your jaw hit the floor. This bike is the one that got away for many of us. Luckily, Mike Barrett in the UK didn’t miss it. It took a while for him to get it but he did and he’s stoked!

“Hi Guys,
I wanted to share some photos of my pride and joy, a PK Ripper XL. As a teen in the
early 80s Rippers were the bikes to have, but I couldn’t afford one. So now in my forties
I have one! Apart from the new school Skyways and Tuf Neck crank the Ripper has been completed
with NOS parts and I have ridden her extensively over the last year. As much as I appreciate the beauty of the Show Bike scene, there’s plenty of us OG BMXers who still like to ride their OG bikes as well as drool over them at home!
Anyway, I hope this message makes your blog… would be great for bragging rights!
Best wishes to all the SE family Worldwide,
Mike Barrett”

Don’t think we have forgotten about you long legged racers. New for 2009 is the PK Ripper Team XXL frameset. With a 21.75″ top tube, the tallest guys can now race in class and cruiser. MSRP $400 gets you the frame, fork, headset and seat clamp.
