One of the last Torker MX built and I now out it.

12 April 2019 - 03:17 AM

So recently this F/F came up built some rear faded parts. So in order to buy this “grail” of mine I sold my 83 VDC Changa. Now I was told this frame set could be one of the last MX frames made. Oct 78 TF533. Now again I will build this boy with OG finish parts with in a year of frame. Diggin the seat clamp and the undrilled forks. Will post pics soon

Any idea on age of this set of CBR cranks ?

Pay attention kids. No need to replace the decals when you only need to clean t. Mongoo...

So a few months ago I picked 2-79-80 Mongoose Motomags. One was black and the other is nickle I sold the black one at the Midwest show and kept the nickle one for the wife but it was in need of a good cleaning s the nickle was green. So I took it apart and sprayed all the parts down with pb blaster and put them in a box for a few weeks to soak. Well a week or so ago I got to it. Using one pack of OOOO steel wool and some mother’s mag Polish and a razor(rust on forks) and well I ditched the CNC spokes and tossed on a set of motos I had and here she is. And the wife loves it.

Prototype 1st JAD F/F made won on Facebook

06 January 2019 - 07:11 PM

Ok so I’m more of a pre 83 and older Bmx guy with that said there is a page over on FB that gives people the opportunity to put up some cool stuff for raffle at x amount a spot for x amounting spots. Any way this frame was put up before new years and the story is it was found in the crawl space of Mike DeMartino the founder of JAD as used at interbike show. Where he had 50lb weights hanging off of race crank, one on the head tube and one on seat post and showed people how much abuse it could take with out snapping on a Machine that beat the bell out of it. I payed for a spot and wound up winning it and man I tell ya I’m kind of geeked after all this is the 1st Jad frame and fork made in 1991 3 years before the company started production on the frames, forks and all the other things they made.i have decided to build it with late 80’s parts the fit the over all condition of the frame set. Top end stuff but beat up 🤕. Any way if you have any ideas on a good parts list to help me out I would appreciate it lol so far I have a old Shimano 600 head set with ceramic races a 89-90 S&M redneck stem, a larger seat post and a shorter bb.

A good friend had them Sunday Blues. Brought this to my door

09 December 2018 - 10:43 PM

So a very good friend of mine got in to a bit of trouble two weeks ago and now is in need of some lawyer money (DUI) and has had this bike since new in 79 and I have been after for quite a wile. Well needless to say he called me out of the blue the week and we made a deal over the phone and he had a hard time leaving the house today. Any rate I now own this bad boy 1979 Blue Motomag. He changed a few things over the years but most of all every thing is OG. Are the bars Tuf neck?
