1984 Torker Freestylist

One of my top 3 favorite builds I've ever done!

I bought this frame and fork together years ago from another fellow collector. I saw it first when he built it up and fell in love with it.  We chatted back and forth about it for awhile until he finally sold it to me.  I knew this was going to be one of those builds that would take me years to complete.  I wasn't about to just throw any old parts on it and call it good.  It sat idle for the better part of 6 years until I decided to start building it.  After many different mock-ups of builds and numerous versions of color choices, I finally decided this is what it would be.  I built this over 4 years ago and it sits in my bedroom to this very day.  Every day I wake up I get to admire the beauty in this bike.  I hope you enjoy it too.

There are not many of these that have surfaced and only about half a dozen of them still have their original forks with them.  This is one of them. A big shout out and thank you to the man himself who designed this beautiful bike - Martin Aparijo. You designed one of the coolest, most comfortable, early freestyle bikes ever made!!!
