This is a very rare Wheels N Things frame and fork built by Torker for Sandy Finkleman. This is number 0004.
I bought this frame and fork from William Larock, who bought it NOS from Adam Cox. Adam bought it from Sandy. I've been pretty stoked and honored to have it. But, it's now time for me to let this go.
These were sold in 1980. Very few were made. It's basically a Torker with a single top tube. Sandy sold the frames with Torker forks stickered Wheels N Things. This early fork is a true Wheels N Things forks from Sandy, but is basically an early Torker mini fork. (Later Torker mini forks were shorter and didn't fit larger tires.) The Wheels N Things fork is made with 7/8" tubing, but standard fork height and geometry. If you prefer, I have a nice, chrome, standard Torker fork, as well.
I'm selling the frame and fork only, but may consider selling the bike as shown here, minus the pedals, grips, saddle and number plates, all of which are on other bikes now. It currently has KKT Lightning pedals, NOS Grab On 2 grips and a blue Kashimax MX saddle.
Trades I would consider include 1979/1980 painted (closed dropout) JMC fork, OG white preferred, but refinished considered, OG finish gold Araya 7bs, nickel-finish pro-size Redline V-bars, Redline double-clamp stem.
