1996 SE Racing Floval Flyer 24

Ride #6, Electric Blue - finally a cruiser for dad

So after building a few bikes for the kids, I realized our old 20" bikes are a little on the small side for me, and I wanted a decent cruiser.  Finally, this frame and fork popped up locally, and I jumped on it.  It's either a '95 or '96 US made Floval Flyer, and what is pretty unique is that it is anodized blue (vs. powder coated).  It's really luminescent, and rides great!  Specs ("CP" = (Current Production)).
2016 Rebuild:

~'96 SE Floval Flyer F/F, (Landing Gear threadless forks), frame is anodized blue
-CP A'me Tri grips
-2015 Gary Turner Tall Cruiser bars
-CP ESP "13" stem
~2009 unidentified headset
~'96 Sun Rhyno Lite Rims, DT Swiss spokes, ~'96 Suzue Sealed Hubs
-CP DURO Comp III style tires, 1.75"
~'96 Shimano SF MX30 chrome freewheel (17 tooth)
-CP Izumi 3/32" chrome chain
-CP Redline Flight cranks (180 mm), CP Porkchop retro spider, CP Porkchop chainwheel (39 tooth)
~'83 Suntour XCII braced pedals, with homemade cages
~'89 Kashimax TM-1 seat
~'96 'Dia Compe 747 V brakes + ~'96 Shimano V Brake Lever

Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.
