1997 Torker Pro ST

1997 Torker Pro ST frame with YESS forks

Got this frame from SBS (Redline and Torker's parent company) to test when I worked for a magazine. Marketing guy knew I was a big fan of Torkers since buying my first in 1979. Frame came with cranks but sans fork. The YESS fork came from YESS to test. I liked it so I kept it on.

Re: 1997 Torker Pro ST

Dang man!!! Great to see this ride, I grew up in northern michigan, super eager to see torker up in the window at the local shop, I ran in an picked one up. After a practice in Grand Rapids a friend and I where in Kalamazoo in at Mc'ee D's for some fries. by the time we grabbed the fries a laddie in the store asked if we rode in on bikes? Saying yes we ran out the door to catch up with two older guys that had just jacked our bikes. We searched the city for 1.5 hours on foot an never found our rides again. Made a report to the police but no word. I was a younger guy then so no car to help the pursuit. Is there any chance for sale?

I love these mid school Torkers.  I hope to find an affordable one someday.
