Torker MX meets Motomag 1’s

Recommended Posts

So after looking at the MX and seeing some others out there I dropped the rear brake & swapped out the spokes to a og set of Moto 1’s I have. And man I tell ya I really like it. You know simple is sometimes better as some have said about this frame the coaster was meant for it. Any rate I dig the look and can’t wait to ride it. Going to pop a blue chain rating on it and call it done.

I quite like the Dura-Ace cranks on it but it would sure be interesting to see it built with OPCs.

Coaster and three piece crank is like a Yugo on Cragars, unless it a freestyle bike.

Thanks man. This is the 1st “simple roots”  build I’ve done . And never even seen it looking like this when I got the F/F and seat clamp. I think I was over thinking a bike lol. But I am digging this rig. I can’t wait for it to be 45-50 tomorrow I might just take her for a spin around the hood.

MM1’s set it off for sure... Always loved those frames, welds look beautiful. Love this bike.

Well, I stand corrected. The OPCs feel much better. Done!
