Mike Buff Tribute PK Ripper

Steve Blackey of the Bicycle Source just sent us an update on his Mike Buff Tribute bike. For those of you who don’t know Buff, he was a pioneer of all things radical. He was one of the first freestylers touring the world, as well as being a progressive dirt jumper. He rode for SE for ages and was part of the BMX Action trick team.

Buff had big bunny hops, wasn’t afraid to ride off a roof or jump a lifted 4×4 truck. Amazing rider. Steve put this PK Ripper Looptail retro bike together to mimick one of Buff’s famous rides. The only difference is he used all modern parts that are up to today’s standards. Check the spec:
