1978 Torker MX

I rode her daily and raced her hard back in the day!!

I got this frame and fork in 1978 from the shop I was sponsored by. It was by far my favorite of all the bikes I rode and raced. I won the '79 NBA Schwinn U.S. National in Colorado  in my class on it. After I quit racing it sat around for years. I let a nephew of mine use it for awhile...When I asked for it back, all I got was the frame forks and Phil Wood hubs.I was way bummed. There were some awesome old components on that bike. So I've slowly built it back to how it was set up back in the day. I've tried to keep it as era correct as possible.
  Thanks to my Nephew( not the one that tore it up ) Matt ( Fulthotle73) and my buddy Rich (Richh66) for helping me along the way!!
