Re: Just show me your torkers.....

Came across this little survivor a couple of days already posted on CL just a way out of town.  Hard to believe it was not already scooped up.

Belonged to semi-famed Austin musician Cyril Daily.  Dates as a an '86 TorkerII 150x

Here's mine. I built it for this years calendar build off.

It's a September 82 L.P. (TZZ serial) with original chrome and decals, making it among one of the last produced before the model name changed to the 280.

All parts are in their original finish with original decals. It is 99% OG with the exception of the following: The wheels were an original matching set but the spokes were pretty crusty so, I re-laced them with new spokes and nipples, it has a new YST BB, and the tires are new Cheng Shin.

When I first started out with this build, I planned on it including a gold Torker 6 bolt stem. That didn't work out however, I was able to acquire an unmolested silver one with the original decal that is in incredible condition. It has since become one of my favorite parts of this build.

Anyway, I hope you guys like it and if you haven't already done so, please vote.

OK, all 3 of my Torkers are finally finished... big_smilebig_smilebig_smile  I changed a couple of things on the '97 200X, COMPLETELY customized and rebuilt the '86 150X and the '97 TFX... VERY happy with ALL of these bikes...
