Thanks. These older people were throwing it away. It was bought for his kid in the late 70's early 80's he said. I took it for the rims. Thanks Brian

Kinda had me on Torker???
Looks like it had a badge on HT.
Torker was a decal? At least what I've seen.
We didn't have internet back then.

Torker's had double top tubes.

This is a dept. store type bike.

True. VERY close to a Webco though. Similar to Raleigh Rampars too. But not close enough.

That BB gusset is the hard part to find.

What's a BB gusset? Lol I can't find any identifying marks on the frame to help. But thanks for helping

Totally forgot about webco.
Torker did have two tubes for TT

It's the flat piece of metal welded to the tube that the seatpost goes into and the tube that goes from the cranks to the forks. It's to add strength to that joint/make it harder to break.

Only a couple brands rocked those, Race INC being one of them. But this doesn't look like a race inc.

Can you grab other photos of it, all around the frame, underneath it, more closeups on the flat metal gussets and where the rear axle is?

Sure. I took the tires and rims off. I figured the rims was the only thing worth saving. But I couldn't dump rest of it. For some reason I couldn't part with it. lol

Holy crap, I remember those seats, and those GRIPS!!!

That is definitely NOT a PK Ripper. Might be a Raleigh.
