I've got a frame that I need some help to ID, it was sold to me as an early Torker/Haro and although it looks very much like a Haro Gen1 I'm 100% sure it isn't and was fairly content with it being a good copy that I could paint up and ride at the track. When I bought it I was told there was no serial and it wasn't until very recently that I even bothered to really scrutinise the frame. I found a very faint serial that I couldn't determine by eye so I took a rubbing. Even with the rubbing it was hard to make out but it appears to be T519O692. (the O is an upper case O not a zero) There is also what 'could' be half an 'M' at the front (making it MT 519 O 692) but it's so faint it could just be a scratch.
I know there are some good Haro Gen1 copies so if anybody has one that tallies up with this serial then please let me know so I can put this one to bed.
I've had a look at both the Haro Gen1 and Torker serial number guides and it 'could' be an 81 Torker but it's almost exactly a Haro Gen1 framest.
Similarities with Haro/Torker
Gusset at head tube has welds at front and back with a gap in the middle
Twin top tubes with frame brace and seat gusset.
Chainstays join BB at the bottom (not higher like some copies)
I've drawn the dimensions in the pics so have a look and let me know what you think the manufacturer might be.
The top tube was measured from pipe to pie rather than centre of heat tube to centre of seat tube so the proper length is 19".
