1984 Torker Pro-X

Tommy Brackens actual bike he won numerous races with!

Been known for my replica builds but this is the real deal, Tommy Brackens actual 1984 Torker Pro-X survivor that he won numerous races on right up to the November 1984 bankruptcy of Torker.

Frame - Torker Pro-X factory decals
Fork - Torker Pro-X factory decals
Bars - Powerlite
Grips - A'ME
Brakes - Dia-Compe MX-1000 with Dia-Compe large brake lever
Stem - ProNeck
Headset - TANGE with SST Dirt Skirt
Rims - Ambrosio
Hubs - B.P.P. Italy (Bicycle Parts Pacific)
Tires - Mitsuboshi Competition III
Cranks - Profile
Pedals - Suntour XC-II, sharpened into the Jaws of Death "Stuart looked at 'em and said that he hopes he never falls in front of me"
Chain - Sedis 3/32
Bottom Bracket - Ultralite, "It's the only one that I've found that will hold up to me"
Seat - Italia Turbo
Seat Post - Scura Speed Technology (SST) Command Post
Seat Post Clamp - Hutch
Pad set - Torker

If you never met Tommy Brackens you need to. Tommy is so funny and the stories are just too gnarly the way he communicates them. The Human Dragster is so fitting as Tommy was so fast on the straights and a 1987 NORA cup winner!

After the Torker bankruptcy Tommy went on to develop Brackens Racing Products in 1986!

Stunning Torker!

Never seen a white Torker frame before, and it being the BMX racing legend Tommy Brackens bike to boot, Wow!

Kid in my hood BITD had a Torker 280X, was such a bad ass BMX bike.

Congrats!

1984 Steve Johnson was really pushing the new Torker graphics including the White bikes.  Actually Tommy Brackens preferred chrome over painted as he disliked having/seeing paint chips or cracks on his bike.  He felt chrome was stiffer but you have to do what the boss wants you to.  Also paint is cheaper than chrome so with some possible financial cutbacks the promotion of white was a choice but a tad too late as the bankruptcy soon happened.

The 280's were so popular and sold a ton of them, great bike and low cost.
