Josh's Ride #2 - '84 Race Machine

After Ride #1 was finished (see Hutch) we thought we needed a new baby, so this was born.  Josh needs to see the full spectrum of 80's BMX.  Because our first bike had no color (black/chrome) we went with something a little different this time.  We try to stay with old school style, so if not vintage, we try to at least use the same manufacturer/same model, and we call this "CP" (Current Production).  Now Josh has to tell me which is better...Hutch or GT?  Specs:
