1977 Torker MX

My childhood bike.

I’m finally finished with my Torker! I got this in ’80 from Kar City Big Wheels in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Nothing has been refinished. It originally had a Mesinger seat with cheapo clamp and post. It also had Tange 1200s initially.

Around ’82 or so, I switched from the Motomags to some Araya wheels, along with the seat and forks pictured.

Aside from new grips (with the same rubber bar end mod I did back then), stickers, tires, and seating, all of the parts are the ones I bought with it, give or take a couple of years.

The number plate is a true, old ABA general issue, but I wanted a really 70’s looking jobby, so I made the number and stickers.

Big props to Tim the Frame Doctor for removing the longest seatpost ever made! He said it was almost down to the BB shell!
