1981 Torker L.P. Long

1981 Torker L.P. Long

Torker LPX = Low Profile eXtended (long) frame that replaced the Torker MX

With the success of the Low Profile frame in 1978 and the Torker MX discontinued in 1979 Torker decided to eXtend the top tube by one inch to give the larger riders a frame to get rad on.  The normal LP frames were 18 1/4" and the LPX is 19 1/4" long.  I switched from a LP to LPX in 1980 and the bike handled even better with a longer top tube.
Another top quality product from the Johnson family!
