Man!!.. whats going on with PM's... ??
Dec 19 2006, 03:35 AM
Is it my eyes?
Or is RL sporting centreline style Landing Gear forks on his PK? Something I have noticed before.
Dec 19 2006, 04:07 AM
looks like it??????????
Dec 19 2006, 04:17 AM
Bugger me. Your right. Thats gotta be a rare item. 1 of 1 I would imagine. I thought Buff rode a PK. I don't remember ever seeing RL on a PK.
Dec 19 2006, 04:32 AM
Yes, they are definitely centreline style Landing Gears.
I recall that photo, and yes, at one stage, I'm sure RL rode a PK (RL rode a lot of different bikes)
Damn, looking at those photos takes me back
Dec 19 2006, 04:34 AM
AND while we are on the subject on Redlines.. is this my favourite.. gotta love those red tyres
Dec 19 2006, 03:33 PM
I guess I should post this again:
Dec 19 2006, 03:41 PM
Ozzy - that GT appears to be early 90s.
Dec 19 2006, 03:49 PM
Luis and his red tyre fetish LOL.
nice one Andy..................can i have those forks? they're the right colour, but wrong stickers LOL
Dec 19 2006, 03:57 PM
ANDY: I've never seen that White RL before.. WOW.. but it's missing something!! RED TYRES BRO!!
Dec 19 2006, 04:06 PM
Red snakebelllies mate!
yeah - right!
Here's a 'survivor':
Dec 19 2006, 04:08 PM
Luis - you saw that Redline at my house homie!
Proline - the forks are the same as that I have here (and need to damn well photgraph for you).
Dec 19 2006, 04:18 PM
Andy: Did I?... can't recall? did it have the plate at the time? Hmmmm.. That survivor looks hot dude.. BUT red tyres on a chrome Redline don't match.. needs blk tyres.. thats my 5cents
I've yet decided on what bike I will put red tyres!!
Dec 19 2006, 04:27 PM
Didn't have the plate (ex. Martin) at the time.
To be honest the bike looks cool but is a little kid's bike.
I like my bikes pro size!
I don't like coloured tyres much.
Mind you, Prosight would probably put white tyres on it - lol
Dec 19 2006, 05:02 PM
Yeah Im the same coloured aren't my cup of tea.. BUT then again on the Kosy they look a-killer
AND whats wrong with white tyres? huh.. hehehe
Dec 19 2006, 05:07 PM
White tyres are GHEY but that's why you like them!
Dec 19 2006, 05:11 PM
huh??????... here you go Andy..
Dec 19 2006, 05:15 PM
And whats wrong with grey tyres?.. my dad has a set on he's wheelchair / 24's Skyways:
Dec 19 2006, 05:34 PM
Andy that bike's to early for white tyre's but my 1983 JMC go's with 1983/4 white comp 3's..I had to put the white comp 3's on something....lol.....
Dec 19 2006, 05:39 PM
OKAY OKAY.. I need to know what colours came out on GT 24's non-chrome. Need photos... need info on colour specs.
Dec 19 2006, 05:55 PM
They you go - pink and white together - GHEY!!!!
Apologies to all the closet homos on here (all you freestlyers).
Luis what year GT 24"?
Dec 19 2006, 06:44 PM
and what do mean my avitar is GHEY?????
Dec 19 2006, 10:30 PM
In 1981, all GT framesets were available in blue, red or black epoxy, except for the pit. That was only available in chrome
For 1982, they offered the same colours, and as far as I know in late 1982, through 1983, they also offered black chrome.
Dec 19 2006, 11:01 PM
Build's/improvements over christmas....
Dec 20 2006, 12:11 AM

Hey did one the Aussies ask about a Bumble Bee BMX? I wasnt sure if someone was chasing one.
Dec 20 2006, 12:38 AM
Reece. is bumble bee a real bmx?
Dec 20 2006, 12:47 AM
GTs also came out in chrome ;-)
Dec 20 2006, 01:14 AM
LOL Marty. Are you sure? I wouldn't be arguing anything GT related with Mcam
Hey Meatpie - Nice project material there!!!
Dec 20 2006, 01:35 AM
Couple of projects on the go myself:
Dec 20 2006, 02:03 AM
Serva, yeah a bumble bee is an 80's bmx, i found one today
Dec 20 2006, 03:11 AM
I thought it rang a bell. I remember gorking at one in a Standish shop in Adelaide as a kid. It was maroon with yellow decals and gum coloured comp III's. Cool looking bike. I also sat on a brand new d/b turbo......should've put that on lay-buy! [ it was $550 ....doh ]
Dec 20 2006, 03:41 AM
I might have a deal comin shortly. If all goes well I'll be riding a very familiar ride once more. Heres hoping!
Nice projects too guys. Should look awsome when finished.
Dec 20 2006, 03:51 AM
Oh yeah, they also came in chrome...LOL
I forgot that bit...LOL
Oh, and if anyone has a pair of 1982/83 GT 24 forks, please let me know. I'd like to find some....
Dec 20 2006, 03:53 AM
Glenn, is a PK getting close? I'm getting closer to finally finishing mine which was very similar to yours.
Dec 20 2006, 04:19 AM
yeah baby. This guy knows his bikes (he's Patterson guy) and he said it has Tuffs on it too.
Dec 20 2006, 04:20 AM
hey check out the robinson crap on ebay.com.auhttp://offer.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...em=110069589286
there was 3 bids cancelled including mine , and 4 bids retracted on the auction !
i bid ONCE was sent a "outbid" notice 3 TIMES over 2 days !!!
.... "you are now the highest bidder" ......"you have been outbid"...... "you are now the highest bidder" ......"you have been outbid" ect ,, i stuck a $77 bid on it to test the high bidder strength ! and its filled my email with junk
well watch out for the seller in the future , obviously someone has offered him some $$$$ off ebay and he has jumped ship .
hope you got a good deal waz
Dec 20 2006, 04:28 AM
That's great news Glenn if you can pull it off. Mine has been 12 months in the making andf after a false start with the frame there is another on the way. Hoping it arrives this week but who knows...
Dec 20 2006, 04:40 AM
See the brake bridge on the diamond back...It's curved and has the little peice for the brakes allready on there. I've got a frame here with the exact same brake bridge but has a different head tube gusset. It has a round hole insted of a diamond. The frames look identical. Anyone know what this thing is?? I'll put up a photo latter.
Dec 20 2006, 04:51 AM
why do us in OZ have so much trouble getting loopy rippers in good condition here ?
if its not ripped off by the seller .... its sent a cracked up piece of junk .
tip: you might already do this - search on ebay.com under "RIPPER" in the "sporting goods" section . the one i eventually got was listed as a "p.k ripper" which doesnt show up by searching for "pk ripper" - just a tip that got me a super condition cheapie , well ...$235us for a original paint job ,non dented, non marked, no cracks, 81 loopy with USlg's. sold by the ex wife of husband who rode it 20 yrs ago and left it in the garage
Dec 20 2006, 05:17 AM
I didn't have a problem with the first frame other than I wasn't able to polish it to my satisfaction and decided to look around for another. The upside, I will get to have a beautiful painted one as well...
Dec 20 2006, 05:47 AM
all good then jarvi , there is a few complaints from aus members that the first go they had at getting loopy pk ended in failure (inc mine) . hey a powdercoated loopy is worth as much as a polished one .... maybe not to you who wants a polished frame . and paint can hide the things we dont want to see !
Dec 20 2006, 04:07 PM
Roy that Diamond back was made at the KOIZUMI factory in Japan. They made other frames and parts as well. It is posiably a Bennet, check the serial number on the rear drop out. KOIZUMI used the baseball stamp on most of there products.
Dec 20 2006, 05:37 PM
Thanks for the GT ad's.. BUT still doesn't tell me what colour CRUISERS they made.. Im a proud owner of a 1981 GT-24 (Chrome).. but wanna paint it red or blue maybe candy? thats why I waan know what year and colours were available?
Dec 20 2006, 10:18 PM
Had to put the GTs on hold so experimenting with a candy apple red PK. This has been powdercoated - different to the Redline.
Still trying to figure out combinations.
Dec 20 2006, 11:42 PM
I love candy red bikes!!!! hey kosy, that redline mxII was my first restoration, it now has black oakley 3s on it. I'm glad you like it.
Dec 20 2006, 11:46 PM
wow martin you've got green grass we haven't seen that in Melbourne for ages.
Dec 21 2006, 12:32 AM
Yeah, it rained in Sydney most of last night.
Dec 21 2006, 12:59 AM
Well that PK's gotta have chrome or gold rims right?
Or black graphite tuffs?
