1981 Torker 26

Low serial # replica of the 1981 BMXA Clint Miller Torker

This was one of my grail bikes..I remember seeing this bike in the September 81 Bicycle Motocross Action.. "Clint Miller and the new Torker Cruiser"..When I was a kid,I REALLY dug Torkers(AND still do!)And read that issue until it was falling apart..

Fast foward to 2014 I was feeling the itch to build this replica for a while and finally located a chrome frame(With a LOW serial #!)
Then I slowly and painfuly collected the parts to build the bike,and had to decipher colors from the black and white magazine pictures..there were only a few color ones to go by.The rims,pads,chainwheel,and tires were NOS.
Im pretty happy how it turned out,I wanted to get it as close as possible..(Mr.Miller?would you like to chime in?)..Some parts were hard to find in ANY condition!Hope you guys enjoy!Thanks.Jeff
