1982 Torker L.P. Eddie Fiola

The Torker frame was soon modified shortly after this to become the HARO Freestyler made by Torker

Eddie Fiola was sponsored by Bob Haro and the Torker low profile frame was a popular frame to use for flatland and ramp riding.  This was an incredible day at the Skate City bowls as Eddie debuted the opposite one hander one footer and lookback one hander aerials!
The winning bike looking simple featured some rare components:
* Bottema Skate park reinforced forks
* Redline non-pinch flight cranks
* Skyway Graphite Tuff II's with Campagnolo first generation hubs
* Mitsuboshi Competition III Yellow label tires
* MAX seat cover
* Bob Hadley sealed bottom bracket in Gold
Eddie left HARO soon after this to start MORALES/FIOLA (MF) and the Torker was redesigned into the HARO Freestyler late 1982.

Re: 1982 Torker L.P. Eddie Fiola

It was such a blast to surprise Eddie with the bike in California.  I think that is the last time we ship seven bikes, unbox, setup for three hours, tear the bikes down, then box them up again...but it was worth having the Torker riders and Johnson's enjoy all the bikes!

This is one rad replica!  The issue with the cover image of Eddie doing the opposite one-hander, one-footer was one of my first BMXA magazines ever - so classic!  Awesome job!!

Wow another awesome Torker build and exact according to Eddie Fiola too cool!  Eddie was such a great Freestyler and remember being so blown away by this cover.  Great to see a build of his before his famous GT days.

See i don't want to hear from people that tell me success is easy, i want to hear from the people who fought it out, who went all twelve rounds with life and got to the other side.
