Got sent this pic today from my long time home boy and the very man from who I purchased my first PK Ripper.
This is Antony Butt’s bad boy fixed wheel.
I can still remember swapping him a handful of hard saved cash when I was 17, for a shiny polished Aluminium Ripper complete with landing gear forks… sweet!
I almost wet myself… It was finally mine.
Then like an idiot I went and sold it about a year later through fear of snapping it on my local trails – Ashworth in Great Barr.
Antony or ‘Butty’ has been riding bikes ever since I have known him, he has raced countless times in BMX including the Worlds, yes the Worlds!
He has competed against most, if not all of of my old BMX heroes and always, always on an S.E.
I can only imagine what trinkets this guy has in his garage.
When I first found out about the 700c Ripper I emailed him to see if he had any info on it, price, release date etc.
Not only did he have info, he already had the bike, in his possession and had been shredding it for for a while. Damn!
I am a big fan of this and I still want one so Antony if your reading this, nudge nudge, wink wink!
