In Topic: SoCal movie trailer “Age Of Summer”

Here's a question: Back in the day, we always referred to the PK Ripper as a PK. In this trailer, the kid refers to it as a Ripper.

What did you all call it?

We called it Ripper mostly but PK was standard too.


On a related note, the movie is set in SoCal in 1986, right? Dude at the beach that thought Minnesota was a city said something like "Ripper. We dont have those around here" while stroking the down tube. Uhhhh ok, the birth place of BMX, California, didnt have PK Rippers?? :ROTFLMAO:



Yea "we don't have those around here". And I don't if they are made less than 10 miles away! :oof:
