    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.
