Tore-down and cleaned up my 1998 GT Pro Performer this weekend . It's nothing special , but it is the bike I ride at Ray's MTB . It's amazing that aluminum foil & white vinegar can clean up 12 years of rust & neglect . :cool:

One of "wired" bikes for the museum - the $5 I paid seems even more worth it now

TRON LEGACY

 

FLYNN's SON WHEN HE WAS YOUNG ROCKS A PK-RIPPER !!!!!!

LOOKED TO BE SILVER WITH WHITE STICKERS/CHROME LANDING GEAR

 

DAMNIT, I DIDN'T SQUINT MY EYES TO SEE IF IT WAS A LOOP-TAIL OR NOT.

 

THE REAL WEIRD THING WAS HOW OBVIOUS THE CAMERA SHOT OF WHAT KIND OF BIKE IT WAS., LIKE THE CAMERA GUY WAS LIKE, =

YOUR NOT GOING TO MISS THIS!.

 

*EDIT- JUST FOUND IT-

 

1982 SE Racing P.K. Ripper

 

1982 SE Racing P.K. Ripper (Featured in movie "Tron 2")

I bought this PK from a private collector and local BMX retailer. He rented this PK to the movie "Tron 2" (they wanted a vintage BMX for the movie). The PK : 82 PK Ripper looptail, SE Bronco Landing Gear forks, Pro Neck, Uni seat, Araya Rims (middle pic). The only thing I replaced so far are the Black Tuff II mags. It is impossible to buy Skyway mags in Canada, I had to ordered them from US. I can't wait till Tron 2 comes out, so I can see what they did with the PK in the movie. (Hopefully some crazy ass stunts).

Almost down to bare metal here.

Primered it white with spray paint...

...Then decided to take the cheap route and blast it with Montana Shock Pink.

Realized that was a dumb idea and sandblasted it back to bare metal.

Decals are here from Ultrahive.com and I'm waiting for the bike to come back from powdercoating.

(Going with the original white.)

...More to come!
