I handle sales and marketing at True Torch. We have almost 40 years experience fabricating BMX bikes. We do custom builds and repairs but our overhead is not paid via BMX.
Personally, I'm a total Peddlepower and early Powerlite junkie. Always looking for '83 and older
Check out my Peddlepower 26" tribute frame set.
Looking for:
Peddlepower and Powerlite parts. I need 24" & 26" Powerlite forks.
Single red 20" Snake Belly in very good condition
OG vinyl Powerlite pads
