Re: 1981 Torker MX

Nice!!  Brings back a ton of memories! That's pretty much the bike I had as a kid.  But, everything that's gold was black, the cranks were Redline and the Bars were Race Inc.

Re: 1981 Torker MX

HOLY CRAP!  I was just stumblin thru the museum and saw this!  You know the Briefcase in PULP FICTION that you never get to see whats inside, but when john travolta opens it, theres like a gold glow coming out and his jaw hits the floor?  I think I just figured out what was inside that briefcase......
Sweetest build I've seen on here yet Chromey!  Nice work!

I still like my "satellite controlled tractor-beam receptors in the grip ends" description though.
