1984 Torker Torklite Mini


This bike contains no refinished components.  Goal: use as many Torker items as can be had (save for hubs which barely exist).  Frame was built in the US a few months before the bankruptcy and end of an era.

I have this same rare frameset that had been repaired and powdered white.  I am done with refinished parts, and told myself if I saw one available in original chrome, I would jump on it, so here it is!

Tried to go black parts, some yellow.  I am one of the few people that dislikes bmx gold, especially as a metal expression of yellow.

Anyway, love this bike, hope you like it.

Frame: 1984 Torker Torklite micro mini, serial TCC0180N, August 1984, original condition, downtube decal original, headtube decal NOS.  Integral seatpost clamp, orginal to frameset.
Fork: Torker Mini (80-84), NOS with factory chrome defect, NOS decals.
Headset: Stronglight C11 plastic, with needle bearings, NOS.
Stem: Torker Ultra-4 Mini, original condition, original hardware.
Handlebars: Torker Mini T-bars, original condition, original large decal, NOS 4130 decal (may be only known pair, sourced from factory rider).

Lever: Dia-Compe Tech 3 RH, original condition with rubber sleeve.
