My new ride!! 26" TORKER CRUISER

Well I purchased this F/F about a year ago .. I got bored last week and decided to put it together with parts I had laying around ..except the 26" Araya's  I got for a cool price off Cowlitzfan..   I think all I need now is a Torker padset .. Pretty cool ride .. Funny my girlfriend said ..What are you building Mountain bikes now!! lol Just thought id share..http://i963.photobucket.com/albums/ae114/6683shawn/bmx%20bikes/035.jpghttp://i963.photobucket.com/albums/ae114/6683shawn/bmx%20bikes/036.jpghttp://i963.photobucket.com/albums/ae114/6683shawn/bmx%20bikes/038-Copy.jpghttp://i963.photobucket.com/albums/ae114/6683shawn/bmx%20bikes/037-Copy-1.jpg

Welcome to the Torker 26" club homie.

I'm liking the GT bars a lot on there and those Flights too.

Dig it!

Re: My new ride!! 26" TORKER CRUISER

The yellow and black is so Torker; looks good man but I think an Aero seat or something sleeker would top it off.

Kashimax Aero was around in 1981 so it would be era correct.

I'm going to be using an Elina lightning bolt on mine now.

Click on the contents link under the picture. The contents should pop up and you can scroll down through the pages. I'm actually getting on that site easliy for once but all I get is the table of contents page and can't see the rest of the pages. Sometimes it takes forever to load also.

Maybe a bug with the site?
