1984 Torker Freestyle Prototype #1
Rarest Torker frame I know of and one of the rarest freestyle frames there is.
This is the first Torker freestyle frame built under the Torker brand name. This frame was designed and ridden by early freestyle pioneer, Martin Aparijo. This is the only Torker FS frame made with a 4 inch head tube. This bike also features the only set of Torker Freestyle handlebars ever made. It was refinished in it’s original factory white color and built to the same exact specs Martin rode it back in 1984. He originally rode this bike with red MX 1000’s and a blue/red Max seat cover due to his Vans Trick Team sponsorship, but I wanted to build it in true Torker colors using as many of his original parts as I could. Not to mention, I couldn’t find his one off color combo SST Gen 1 hubs.
