1981 Torker MX
Old School Survivor
This is an original Old School Survivor. I recently dug this out of my parent's basement. Brings back great memories.
My first BMX bike was a Schwinn Scrambler with yellow Tuffs, back in 5/6th grade.
Come 7th grade I knew that I had to upgrade to keep up with the older kids in the neighborhood who rode Redlines, Hutch and PK Rippers.
So I saved up all of my Paper Route money and ordered a Torker FF set from my LBS. Stuck the yellow Tuffs on them and then added new parts as I could afford to as a 12/13yr old kid.
Always wanted a set of 3 piece cranks...but could never afford them as a kid
Update:...added some Shimano 600's...and replaced the Uni seat with a NOS Cinelli
