1984 Torker Freestylist

1984 Torker Freestylist

One of 100 manufactured.

One of my top 3 favorite builds I've ever done!

I bought this frame and fork together many, many years ago from another fellow collector. I saw it first when he built it up and fell in love with it! I got to see it in-person at a show up and knew then and there I had to have it! We chatted back and forth about it for awhile until he finally sold it to me. I knew this was going to be one of those builds that would take me years to complete. I wasn't about to just throw any old parts on it and call it good. It sat idle for the better part of 5 years until I decided to start building it - all the while, collecting parts for it. After many different mock-ups of builds and numerous versions of color choice, I finally decided this is what it would be. I built this well over 15 years ago now. It sits in my home office with all my other "grail bikes". Every day I get to admire the beauty of this bike.  I hope you enjoy it too.

There are not too many of these that have surfaced or survived (around a dozen or so). A small group of them still have their matching forks with them - this is one of them. A huge shout out to the man himself who helped in designing this beautiful frameset - Martin Aparijo. You designed one of the coolest, most comfortable riding, early freestyle bikes ever made!!!

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness............-Emo Philips
