2012 True Torch Blue Max 26

My Custom Blue Max at THE ALAMO San Antonio Texas

I simply asked if they True Torch could make a few mods to their current model and without hesitation the answer was YES.
I fondly remember the original Blue Max and in fact I own a 20" and so this replica is a one off creation and totally from my imagination!!
26" True Torch frame and custom made Mongoose style blade fork with Nickel Plate finishSerial Number BM001
BMX Products Blue Max decals and Mongoose gripsTrue Torch bars with square cross barTrue Torch stem, 2 piece seat clamp and straight seat postPork Chop sourced Mongoose chainwheel, TNT hubs, Dia Compe MX1000 brake and sealed headsetKenda Comp III tires mounted to Sun Lite rimsCranks are SE takeoffs and the pedals are Shimano DX

Re: 2012 True Torch Blue Max 26

Holy crap! That could be the coolest cruiser I have ever seen! Are they thinking about making a limited run of these, or is this going to be the only one?
