1984 Torker 280X

SOLD

TRADED I got this bike along with a hutch pro racer got them together for $175 it had some ugly kos kruiser copy bars but with the power curve like the power light bars then I bought another bike with the original torker bars a year before I got this so of course I switched out the bars then discover a brake lever that was stamped skyway I didn't know skyway made brakes. Know I'm starting to ride the bike more. If u have any Idea what kind of torker this is please pm me.

Cool Finds! looks like a 1986 280X. I had one & it got ripped off back in 87. Could be my old bike, i'm from Minnesota!

Re: 1984 Torker 280X

It's definitely a later one. Not sure if it's a 280x or not, but you should be able to tell by the serial number. Torker serial numbers are well documented on here and other places:
http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/info/197/

Skyway didn't make brakes per se, but they did make brake levers.

...and brake pads.
Tuff Pads ... http://bmxmuseum.com/reference/2955
Pro Pads .... http://bmxmuseum.com/reference/2954
