    This is my 2nd build, & my 2nd Favorite Bike. the bike shop where i bought this bike said it was better than a schwinn. i have a Schwinn Delmar that is yet to be put together. the only difference is that the Torker does have bigger spokes, however the Schwinn Delmar has better fenders, & they are more securely fastened. this bike has the same trailer hitch as my other bike.

    Nice looking ride. Did you make the hitch? Would love to know more about it.

    yes i did, it's very easy, all you need is a peice of 1 inch angle iron about 6-7 inches long, a swivel caster with at least a 1-1/8 inch wheel on it. grind the rivet head off the pin that holds the wheel on the caster, & remove the wheel. I renforced the base of the castor with by welding a peice of 3/32 inch stainless steel the same size to it. then welded the castor to the peice of angle iron. drill a hole to accept the axle. then saw about 1 inch of the angle off the angle iron , on the front so you can put a thick peice of rubber around the chain stay, & secure it with a hose clamp. & its just that easy
