Re: gt cranks question

Re: gt cranks question

Is your question did GT make a 3 piece before 86?  I know there was not in '84, I'm 90% sure there was not in '85, but in any case, you're question is not real clear.


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.

Re: gt cranks question

GT came out with the power series in 86'. before that if u wanted 3pc u would have went with some flights or maxy cross something of that nature. there were plenty of 3pc's but not a actuall GT brand crank. that im aware of anyways. SR made those for GT in 86' so u may want to go with something like that. u can never go wrong with a first gen. power series cranks. pricey $$ though..
