Shimano Tourney. Similar to DC890s.

+1 and Shimano DX 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.

If you're looking for mx900/1000 type brakes, Changstar, Formos , Proclass. Some are better than others. If you want Dc type 1020/890, try ebay U.K. Raleigh put them on their Burner range.

Re: Non Dia-Compe Lever/caliper

i've only seen dc bicycle builds, maybe time for something different no matter how much i dont want to change over. its an 83 or 84 123 serial hutch

also alot of the companies mentioned parts look close on comparison to the dc part.
