Your authorative resource for BMX, Old school to New
Jason was a fast dude and when this bike was featured in Bicycle Motocross Action I think he became that much more faster due to this bike. Jason was winning everything in sight then and to have this custom mini designed for him made the Torker/Jensen combination unstoppable.
Being a Torker rider I was thrilled to see the cover in the Torker colors and amazed at how aesthetically awesome the black and copper combination worked out for the bike. This is one solid and light BMX machine and can see why Jason won many races with it.
The mini wasn't promoted heavily by Torker and with the limited production this has become a rare frame and fork.
To my surprise at the Vintage BMX 2006 gathering that this bike won first place for best 80's BMX?
A year after I presented the bike at various gatherings I received an E-mail from Jason himself. He thinks the bike is perfect and would like to see it personally as many of his items were misplaced when moving.
It's been great sharing the Torker bicycle and rider history with others. So many kids and parents ask where do I get this bike and I tell them it's a "one of a kind." Here it is for your online pleasure and thanks for the positive feedback on this unique racing machine.
