1981 Torker 24

Bought the F/F from banditofactoryrider a couple months ago.

Just completed this in July of 2008. Frame and fork was purchased from banditofactoryrider, thanks again Giier! The NOS parts on this cruiser are the Araya 7X hoops laced up with Sunshine black and silver sealed hubs(Cook Bros. style) and black anno nipples, Tioga Comp III fatty/skinny tires, black Elina lightning bolt seat with GT seatpost, AME grips, Hatta black anno headset and the black anno Dirtskirt. The rest of the parts have either been rechromed or polished so they look NOS. Rechromed parts are the 175 single pinch, full wrap 401 Flight cranks with dimpled bottom bracket and the Torker cruiser bars. Then there is the silver inverted cruiser Pro neck, silver Tuff Neck seat clamp, Bubble font Redline 41 tooth chainring, Dia Compe 1000 chrome brake and a set of Suntour XC II pedals. This has been one of my favorite builds and will stay in my collection of cruisers for a long time.

Wow... that is built almost exactly like my old bike save the frame being chrome and the neck was not up side down... Awesome!


Seriously considering a torker/redline midlife crisis project ^_^

Wicked cruiser.  No flaws.  Definitely one of my favs if not my most fav right now.

If you ever want to unload it look me up!
