1984 Hutch Trick Star

All original owned from new since 1984 chrome trickstar.

So back in 1984 I was a bit of a local BMX hero…in my area of North East London, England and a leader of the local BMX crew as I campaigned for somewhere dedicated to ride for us and ended up on the front page of our local newspaper with a picture of me on our home made quarter bike… I was in good company as I lived only 3 miles from the great English racer Andy Ruffle.  I also lived pretty  close to the Rom skatepark where I spent much of my teenage years tearing up the bowls…having started out  with a Mongoose I then owned a Diamond Back Harry Leary Turbo, a Redline MX 2/3 then a Race inc and finally landed my dream Trickstar in 1984.  So pretty much everything on this Trickstar is original as it has always been in my possession. When I stopped riding it was stored in a garage and not really touched until around 3 years ago.  I think when I turned 50 I decided that was the moment to restore it. Unfortunately it had deteriorated during the 30 years in storage so began the strip down and rebuild. Having to work and manage life I restored everything slowly, where I could at weekends so it’s taken me a good while. The  non original parts, my A’me unitrons had perished so these are replaced with new A’me grips and the tyres are new whitewall street tyres. Everything else is as it was in 1984. Throughout the strip down and rebuild I have pictured everything I can so I now have around 300 images down to the Tange seikei headset bearings!
