Nice!  I have the same bike sitting in storage waiting to be restored. A buddy of mine has owned it since new, so when it gets finished it will be going right back to him.

Re: 1986 Torker 2 540 Air

O.K, couple of points

(I love this bike by the way smile )

It is at least a 1987 model, not 86 (different frame and fork all together..)

Forks on these are TANGE 'MX' forks (stamped on drop outs) the 86 had 'Spinner' branded forks.

Well I need to add a couple more things to point out.....

FRESSTYLE FREEKS 540 Air should be a 1987 because the cross hatch paint scheme had been from that year (1987). 

And I have a 1986 Torker 2 540 Air Frame and fork that was NOS and taken apart from a bike kit and parted out..The forks are stamped Tange
The Frame/Fork was parted out from Earl's Stuff and it is Hawaiian Blue and White two tone without the cross hatch paint scheme(86).
I bought the bars also and they are Tioga Air Step bars with the thicker cross bar that I believe was made by Tioga just for Torker 2 bikes but there is no documentation on this.

By the way......  NICE bike FRESSTYLE FREEK!

Here are a couple photo's of mine to show difference in the paint jobs between '86 and '87.  Also the cross bar on the Air Step bars.

Sorry.....I have no pic to show Tange stamp on forks but trust me they are stamped Tange.

I took the mags off for the better riding pergrine sealed wheels. built it to look like a kid saved his lawn moe money. ditched the stock cost cuter parts and slowly fix up his sweet ride!
