Can you id this BMX bike?

Can anyone ID this bike? Just bought it for $5.

Interesting points-

170 mm shimano 600 crank, rear brake only, brake cable release in the headtube gusset. Molded plastic race number plate says "Haro"

From the front-- no nameplate

That frame looks a lot like an old school Torker. Go to BMX Museum and look at a few. I think the brake release was an add on by someone that used some road parts to make a BMX bike. I used an old Weinmann brake and quick release when I built the Redline Micro Mini for my sons.

Yes toker makes sense to me. I did go to the bmx museum site. I too thought that the brake release was an add on, but it fits really well. Toker was a precursor to haro. The only bad thing that I found is the crank. Just a bit of play on the left side arm. The self extracting design was cool, but not so effective.

Get the play out or it will eat itself up. Riding a loose square taper crank arm is not good.

Um, Torkers had twin top tubes.
This bike has one.
Thus, not a Torker.

Clearly, this was Roger Craig's bike from his short-lived race career.

Looks like the old Kabuki my brother had in the early 80's.
