Can anybody tell me if SE made a 24in. PK RIPPER with actual PK RIPPER decals. I know there is a FLOVAL FLYER and a OM FLYER. I am checking this bike out for sale online, it has pk decals, black in color , the seller doesnt know much about it, but says the tires are bigger than a regular 20in. bmx.

Well since nobody had anything to say. I have since found out that there is no 24in PK, except for the possibility of a prototype. The bike I was checking out was a Floval Flyer with PK stickers. I found this out after buying it and having it shipped to me. The guy I bought it from didn't know jack about it and the picture was hard to make out on the ad, but I took a chance and scored an american mid 90's Floval Flyer.

what? you ride a specialized hardrock or something and you think se sucks?
My step brother had two quadangles.. awesome bikes. SE's quality, at least in the 80's was second to none.. even if the pk's broke alot.

SE is pretty much awful, at least since the Jeff Crawn incident. The fact that Ryan Guettler openly stated that he was actually riding a Fit S2i Aitken (and later, a LAF) while he was sponsored by them doesn't say anything positive about their current quality control, either.

Kids were snapping those damn things back in the early 80's, I never understood the appeal.

Well for those of you who like SE, on the vintage bmx site a stumbled across a thread from Todd Lyons asking anybody if they new where to find old drawings and specs of the oldschool PK. It sounds like they might start reproduction. Good or bad thing?
