Torker 2 rusty old wreck build thread

Thought I’d start a build thread on my new torker 360 she’s sad but I have some talented friends so I’ll post how it turned up and to how it is in a week cheers scotty http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/259981/b729b3e5-e4fc-4f37-945f-2857c6d0b79b5cef1edb35.png

Re: Torker 2 rusty old wreck build thread

I saw a TRM (British upside down Quadangle) frame sell for around £800 last year. This thing looks like a bike you would gap compared to that. It had gaping great holes in it. I mean tbh? all you could have done was replace every tube on the thing making the price seem daft.

Thanks. I love that advice. I will put it on my list of things to learn to do.  In the meanwhile, I have been advised to stop buying stuff that needs welding until I figure out how to weld.

It’s actually pretty solid and I’m building it as a rider I’ll go out on it with my boys check out the recent update it’s now in bare metal (blasted no other holes in it had some pitting underneath pics including of them too

Re: Torker 2 rusty old wreck build thread

Bit of an update on miss piggy we have the rust in the gusset done but I’ll do s bit more of a tidy up on it before it gets powder coated. I’m quite surprised at how solid the frame is as it’s now been blasted and in bare metal there is some pitting I need to weld up on the chain guide that I missed check out the pics I’m really enjoying bringing this back from the dead as everyone had written it of as roached  cheers scotty http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/259981/3a4602d8-efa0-444f-8b21-5de7bd9318a05cf11763b6.jpeg
