Thank you. I got these back in 97-98 because they were different than the normal ones as I like to be different then the normal.

Does anybody happen to know if and when the 85 pk rippers were purple and anodized.

I've never heard of an 85 with that finish... but it does look pretty close to the finish on Sean's 97 alloy quad 24" proto

Anodize doesn't chip. Looks painted from this monitor. That would be cool if that was an OG color.

This is my 1996-ish Floval. I built this up when I wanted a bike to ride back in the late '90s. I didn't like mountain bikes and I didn't want a 20-inch. I almost got a boring black and chrome stock GT 24, but I ordered this frame and fork from SE direct and built it up with parts I found at various bike shops. This was before I got into collecting--I didn't know people did that!
The mix of years on the parts is because I was trying to build an '80s style bike with some color in it! All parts are NOS like the 7C hoops I got from a closing Schwinn store off the 55 freeway and the Suzue hubs I found at a bike shop right by my condo in Corona. DK stem, Tioga Comp III tires, GT cruiser bars (swapped for the tall GT Pro bars) DK seat came form Dan's Comp. I found the single pinch Redline flight cranks at a BS in Riverside near the old Sears.

Thank you Spur. I didn't think it was anodized either but the purple is throwing me off though. Upon me looking in the headtube and bottom bracket it is paint. I'm looking for 2 sets of 85-97 pk ripper decals if anybody has or knows where I can get them would be greatly appreciated.
