1983 Hutch Pro Racer

Josh's new ride...Dad's old Pre S/N Pro Racer...updated

So I reach up in the high storage of my garage this past summer and grab a hold of my distant past...this Pro Racer f/f that we've had in storage since 1986.  Between my brothers and I, we had 1 Skyway, 2 Hutch's, and a Robinson.  I raced a bit, road 1/2 pipes, and dirt jumped...but then I had to go and grow up (phooey) and we packed up the left overs.  All that remained was this f/f and a few other pieces.  Now I have an 11 year old son, and I've got to bring him up right (old school) so time to bring this bike back to life.  We built it with the theme of "genuine old school characteristics", meaning maybe current production (CP), but at least same old manufacturer/same model.  Josh can't stop grinning....  Specs (Updated Jan '11):

-'83 Hutch Pre S/N Pro Racer F/F, non-drilled forks (fork dropouts rewelded by Framedoc @ Jan '11 update, always had classic Hutch dropout split issue)
-CP A'me Tri grips
~'83 GT Pro Bars (replaced '94 GT Pro Bars @ Jan '11 update)
~'85 SR MS 422 stem (replaced '92 dk stem @ Jan '11 update)
-CP Tioga MX-2 headset
-CP Skyway Tuff II mags
-CP CST "Comp III style" skinwall tires, 1.75"
-'10 Shimano SF MX330 chrome freewheel (replaced '83 Shimano 333 chrome freewheel @ Jan '11 update)
-'83 Z chain
-CP Redline Flight Cranks (175 mm, 44 tooth)
-'83 Suntour 1st gen XC II pedals (resto'd by me) with homemade cages (original cages replaced by homemade cages @ Jan '11 update)
-'83 NOS BMX Aero seat
~'82 Strong fluted seatpost (resto'd by me)
~'80 Cycle Pro seat clamp (polished by me)
-'Dia Compe MX 1000 brakes + Dia Compe Tech 3 lever
-'10 Cuckoo dropout savers (added at Jan '11 update)

Re: 1983 Hutch Pro Racer

Why must you torment me so.  My Pro Racer is still in pieces, begging to be built...... 

Pssst, Yea you.  Get away from that computer.  Come over here for a minute.  Wanna piss of the wife and stay up all night building me up?  Come on, you know you want to.

AGGHHH!


Cool, a new bike.  Wait a minute.......where am I going to hide this one.  She's going to catch me...

Wanted: 90 Holmes f/f decals, Odyssey parts in vapor blue

Re: 1983 Hutch Pro Racer

Made a couple of upgrades 2/2/2011:
-Fork dropouts repaired by frame doc.  They had the classic dropout split problem.
-Replaced '90's GT bars with '83 GT Pro Bars
-Replaced '90's dk stem with '85 SR MS422 stem.
-Added dropout savers.
-Replaced original Suntour pedal cages with cages that I made.
-Replaced Shimano 333 freewheel with new Shimano SF-MX330.  (it was just too worn out).
