This is a 1976 FMF JW replica mild steel frame. I got it complete from another collector. I then made very few changes to it to make it more to my mind’s eye. The understanding is that JW stands for Jeff Ward. I’ll go with that.
Frame: FMF JW Replica. Serial # FJC0**. (Repainted)
Tires: Ching Shin C-183 20x2.125 front 20x1.75 rear.
Extras and incidentals: Sewn on, snap type cross bar pad. Preston Petty oval number plate. Reproduction frame stickers. Reproduction FMF BMX sticker on the number plate. All other stickers vintage originals.
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??
Yea "we don't have those around here". And I don't if they are made less than 10 miles away!
