Finally, I have enough to build it....

I have been searching for parts for days for this build and finally have enough to put it together.  I'm running 1pc cranks for now and will switch to 3pc later.  I still need 1/2" gold KKT lightening pedals to finish it off but I have some cheap riders I'll throw on for now.  Here's the parts and parts list:  MINT og chrome and decal Profile Champ frame & fork, GT Epoch headset (og to the bike from bitd), super clean silver Pro Neck, 2nd gen Hutch Pro bars, Oakley b1b grips, Haro series one plate, NOS right side tech 3 lever, mint silver DC mx 900, NOS gold Suntour seat clamp and NOS 44t Suntour sprocket, Takagi 1pc cranks, Hutch lay back seat post, Shotgun II seat, shiny side Araya 7x's w/Suzue sealed hubs, NOS rainbow label comp 3's, and some cheap pedals for now.

Re: Finally, I have enough to build it....

Not as much progress as I wanted, the bearings on the rear hub are shot.  Anyone know where to get bearings for Suzue hubs?  I think I saw some on feebay, I'll have to look.  Here's a couple progress pics....

Re: Finally, I have enough to build it....

Should look nice.

Get the Suzue bearings from Philwood.


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.

Yes, it took quite a while to find some of the parts.  Gold hoops don't pop up all the time and aren't that cheap when they do, frame & fork setups this nice are hard to come by, the only 1st gen sealed Suzue hubs I've been able to find are NOS ones from whatshisnuts in the UK for $250 and I'm not spending that on Suzue hubs, a clean Shotgun II seat is hard to find, the series one plates don't come up that often, and the brake isn't in the wrong spot, like I mentioned, I'm using front and rear brakes. big_smile

Have you been inside the bearings? Are they all rusty or are the balls worn? The reason that I ask is those bearings can be cleaned and re-greased.

If the Suzue hubs are sealed cartridge bearing then yes, Phil Wood or your local bearing supply should have them also. Just give the number on the bearing dust sheild.

You can also rebuild the originals, just be careful when removing the dust sheild.

The bearings are trashed, the centers wobble all over the place.

That sucks. I would bring them into the local bearing shop, most large cities have them, and see if they can match them. Or give Phil Wood a call see if they have anything that would work for ya.

You are off to a great start on your build. cool

Phil Wood is actually only about 2 hours from me, I'll have to give them a call cause these bearings are so trashed that I couldn't even true the wheel perfectly.
