freestyler
by the looks of that frame luis it will be the best $20 that you will ever spend bud to much work
sand blasted it ?
KOSY-MOTO
Yeah I know freestyler.. but I dont have a sand blaster close by.. I dont mind paying the 40-80bucks.. but looks like thats the way to go!!..
COASTY
Our guy up here charges $20, thats his minimum price. He coats it with nickel primer as well for that price.
COASTY
Ask a fencing place or similar. They always get stuff blasted. Tell them to throw it in with a batch of fencing.
KOSY-MOTO
good idea Coasta!! thanks buddy..
COASTY
I've been looking for ways to clean up tuff wheels. I think I may have stumbled across a solution. Dry Ice Blasting! Check it out and tell me what you think.

AjayVBMX
What frame is that Luis? A Torker?
KOSY-MOTO
No bro.. its an Aussie Malvern Star FreeStyler.. mid 80's. I Wanted to get it finished by Australia day but it looks like it ain't gonna happen.. Oh well maybe next year!
crossriderozzy
I wana be a star!he he .nice find osama,dont think Ive ever seen one before.
HowardinOz
Looks like it may be worth looking into Coast.
Someone, maybe Marty told me of a place down here that will do Tuffs for $30.00 a set. Apparently they come up like new.
Plastic bead blasting I believe.

Pete Porker
Hey guys, here's my P.K. -

Oh yeah, and some guy called Stu Thomsen wrote his name on the handlebar pad !
KOSY-MOTO
Oh Pete.. WOOOOOOOOOOW.. WE should hook up and have a race on track, two PK Rippers to bring back alot of racing memories.. All welcome..
crossriderozzy
sweet ,I love that naked look! still havin those beers for ya luis!
HowardinOz
Oh Man, those graffitiing kids must be pretty bad up there Pete!
Hey Luis, here's my first Malvern Star!

Well, not my original bike...unfortunately, but I intend to restore it.
A Malvern Star Flying Wedge from about 74 I think.
Complete with rear disc brake.
Howard
HowardinOz
I had one as my first bike but who knows what became of it???
COASTY
Nice PK Pete. Bringin' back the memories for me!
KOSY-MOTO
Thanks crossriderOz.. I'm intch'n for a beer buddy.. but things here are abit on the go at the moment with my father no 100% the last thing I want is to rush him back into Hospital with afew beers on me.. DAMN!! Merry Christmas buddy...
COASTY
My best mate bitd (early 70's) had one of those malvern stars. Looks like a Raliegh Chopper.
HowardinOz
Yeah, it was a cool bike!
Convinced my folks to BMXify it when they became the craze.
Wish I still had it. I remember finding a frame at the tip which I cut the top tubes out of because I wanted a couple of small pieces of tubing for something or other. Things are as rare as rockinghorse **** now!
OHHHHH The things we've done in the past!
KOSY-MOTO
Oh Howie.. what a great shot!! looks amazing.. Those St Kilda EAST SIDE Bike club boys would really appreciate that Original bike!!.. Have you ever had the chance tp checkout their swap meet?
COASTY
My mates bike had all the lights too! It was pretty much identical to that one! Very cool. Now I know where torker got there twin top tubes idea!
KOSY-MOTO
DID someone say torker? hehehe

Sorry I just had to re-post my honeyBlonde -Torker F+F again!! hehehe..
HowardinOz
Nice Luis!
Yeah, very similar top tube configuration huh?!
Only difference really is that the Wedge weighs about as much as my truck!!!
KOSY-MOTO
MrBMX?? You around homie??

This ones for you buddy.. remember this??
Mr.BMX
hehehe, yeh i remember it ;-)
It's somewhere in the Netherlands now though.

Nice pics Luis, cool !!!!
HowardinOz
Hi Guys,
my wish list to suit the PK should anyone be able to help me out.
- Lay back seat post...either chrome or anno blue.
- Rear V brake, anno blue or any colour as I can strip and polish it if necessary.
- Blue anno headset.
- SE camo pads..I know, clutching at straws with this one!
- Chrome PK Ripper sticker set...may have to hit ART29 on ebay for these.
- Dark blue grips...AME or similar...old school.
- Frame and fork washers to suit PK...preferably anno blue but silver is fine.
- maybe a blue anno stem of some sort. The one on the bike is a fusion which is OK but there are nicer ones to be had.

I know some of this stuff comes up on the bay but I just thought I'd ask here first.
Thank's
Howard
KOSY-MOTO
Howie.. F+F washers to fit our 90's model won't actually fit.. I've tried hehehe..

- Camo pads.. checkout Alans BMX in the Uk.. is your best bet.
- I may have a set of AME blue grips..

OsamasBMXxX
dugga
hey howard... PM for you
HowardinOz
Hey Luis,
What stops them from fitting? Do they need filing?
Thank's Ian, got the PM.
Howard
KOSY-MOTO
Yeah.. 90's frams are a mill smaller.. or maybe its because heavy pwder coating... you can always try and see for yourself..
COASTY
I wouldnt put a layback post on a PK either. I'm going by the older models but I wouldn't use one.
Mr.BMX
More piccies for everyone,
Some very rare scores ;-)





Enjoy !!!
Mr.BMX
KOSY-MOTO
WOW love your latest score BMXa.. XLnt!
COASTY
good scores Marty. Love those Redline stems. Plate looks like new!
KOSY-MOTO
Project 103: General-Lee NewSkool going to be Orange and White.. white abit of black.. Cronulla redneck style


ENjoy.
HowardinOz
Hi Guys,
I wouldn't have ever put a layback pole in a looptail but I wouldn't think it would be an issue in the later models with the integrated clamp.
What do you guys think?
KOSY-MOTO
Layback or no layback its all good.. I have a layback on my Loopie tail.. am i breaking any laws? hehehe.. in the meantime I'm having troubles trying to find a seat post that will fit my 90's PK Ripper.. not that easy..
COASTY
Layback seatposts put a lot of pressure around the seatube area on any frame. PK's have a reputation for cracking in that spot at the best of times.
Luis, my neighbour rides around the street on a General lee. Good bikes.
HowardinOz
Hi Coast,
been thinking about that. From memory the crack on the looptails starts at the back where the slot is at the botom of the slot. This means the tube is being stressed forward. The opposite direction to the stress being exerted by the lay back pole.???
Howard
COASTY
Yeah I see what you mean. I've seen other cracks in the post area too. Some have broken clean off. I know thats pretty extreme but the newer models look a lot stronger in that area anyway. I rode my looptail a lot and it has been to the skatepark too. I never tempted fate so I was lucky. Thats what the goose is for!
HowardinOz
Luis, don't know if it helps any, I just measured the post that came with the PK and it's 7/8". Robinson CrMo. It's buggered though, it's been cut off at the min insertion line which means it will be way too short!
Howard
KOSY-MOTO
Yeah I have a 7/8 seat post but its awee bit small.. is their an adaptor which slides onto a 7/8post? I think I remember seeing them on the UNI seats as an adaptor.. Hmmm.. Seats!! hehehe.. I might go for another ride this time on my PK..
Mr.BMX
Luis,

The uni-seat plastic adapter allowed the thin 7/8" uni pole to fit into a standrd size (larger) bmx seat-tube.
HowardinOz
Luis, the 7/8" fits in mine like a finger in a bum....apparently ;-)
I've heard that some were more suited to the poofteenth bigger 22mm.
MMmm, not very politically correct huh?!


Oh Well!!!
COASTY
Hey guys this is what my neighbour is riding now. Same colour too! Very cool frames. The geometry and the technique to make them is very cool. He has a sponsorship from them as well as his sister.
Revtec
HowardinOz
Wow!!!
Nice!
Mr.BMX
Speaking of PK's, i got a $35 score in a garage sale
in Kilsyth.



Enjoy!!
Marty.
HowardinOz
I really like the spokeless wheels, and the guy's ability to hover...very cool!
Hee! Hee!
