Re: 1979 Torker L.P.

Cool frame. I always wanted a white Torker.

What you have there is an L.P. (Low Profile--the standard Torker frame late-1978-1981.) in mild steel. The LM at the end of the SN means L.P. Mild steel.

Where is the SN? On the BB shell or the drop out? Lemme know and I'll tell you the year. It's either 1979 or 1980.

The stickers on it when you bought it are all wrong. Those are 1983 stickers.

SN is on the bb. It was blue originally, but I did it in white 'cause the parts I have for it would have looked terrible on blue...

It's a 1979.

I have that same SN in my "collection" from some where else. Maybe it as on ebay? Not many notes next to it, though, so I had little info.

Anyway, it's a 1979 mild steel L.P..

Saw this bike today (12-17-2011) and it is beautiful! We meet today thru a mutual friend, I was riding my newest project, the 1990 Auburn with blue tires. Its posted on this site with my other bikes. It was also nice to meet a local collector hear in Vegas.

Great bike.  Awesome colors!


Never liked Starsky and HUTCH.  Not a big Maverick and GOOSE fan.  I always like MAGNUM.  He drove a sweet Ferrari and picked up hot chicks with ease.  THATS WHY I'M AN MCS GUY!
