1982 Torker 280 Long
Race Entry in the 2017 Calendar Build-off Competition.
When I saw this frame & fork for sale, I knew I had to have it. One gusset was broken, One gusset was cracked, the chrome was shot. It needed some work but I love saving these old frames. After all, my Torker26 that I built last year needed repairs too. It was time to build a Torker 20" to go with the Torker26.
