1999 Torker Plague

The Torker Plague was a mid-upper freestyle BMX offered in 1999 and was closely based on the frame designs of the legendary Torker 280, and the Australian Rok-on and Bragg models of the 1980's

This is my 1999 Torker Plague which I scored in a bulk buy lot off eBay and it was a run down survivor so I spent a bit of time and elbow grease tidying it up to a clean presentable standard.
I polished the frame, stem and seat post clamp using Autosol, and resprayed the forks, seat post and handlebars.
I left the original decals on it as I haven't sourced any NOS.
Original Specs* Bicycle Type: Freestyle/jumping
* Colors: Chrome-Plated, Sun Burn'd
* Frame Construction: Pulse-welded
* Frame Tubing Material: Chromoly/ hi-tensile steel
* Fork Brand & Material: Torker Chromoly, unicrown crown
* Brakeset:Tektro U-brake rear brakes, Tektro Sidepull Front, Tektro alloy levers
* Crankset: Torker 44T
* Pedals: Wellgo Platform

* Rear Cog:16T
* Chain: KMC, 1/2 x 1/8"
* Seatpost: Chromoly layback micro-adjust, 25.4mm diameter
* Saddle:Torker

My model is pretty close to original, the only differences being upgrades to GT Platform Pedals, AME Grips and new tyres.
THIS IS HAS BEEN SOLD

Re: 1999 Torker Plague

Just bought one almost complete from a dump.
It'll be semi-restored one day but for now it's a fill-in for my son while his in pieces for painting, so it's got his Haro 3-piece cranks with tiny Stolen sprocket, Redline handlebars, and Salt sealed wheels with 9tooth drive, so it's a bit weird but we have all the original stuff except grips, gyro, seat and tyres.


Would love to own a black and yellow, late 80s Cyclops Arrow, a chrome 1993 DiamondBack Viper & a 1993 DiamondBack Turbo
