    Square tube BMX frame

    About 15 years ago one of my best friends got an aluminum BMX frame that had square tubing. Well, square cross section, the tubing was rectangular. Anyway, it had PK Ripper stickers on it, but every pk ripper i've seen has floval tubing. Anyone know of a late 80s bmx frame made from rectangular tubing? It was bright purple if that helps at all.

    If you don't know what to look for, how are we supposed to know what to look for?

    I think the guy was more interested in finding somebody who already knew something about what he was describing rather than as someone to google a picture for him....

    90% of the poeple in this forum are 17 and under. no ones gonna know anything about a late 80's bmx based on the fact that it was aluminum (as were all frames at that time...i think), and it has square tubing.

    Bulldogs frame has a squareish rear triagnle tubing thing going on , but thats a newer frame.
    And speaking of odd tubing on frames, did anyone see the Sunday frames with the riged or whatever downtubes?

    Yeah, everything has to break under a specific amount of stress... but it'll just probably be very hard to dent. I want to see one in person though.

    Most frames were still steel in the late 80's.

    Maybe if he described in detail which tube were rectangle, that would help. Many race bikes today have boxed rear triangles.
