Noooicce!


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.

IMO, Schwinn "Sky Blue" is the best "blue" for a bike ...
Awesome pick-up.

Re: Look at the 1980 Schwinn Sting I just picked up!

I can't ever remember seeing a sky blue competition. Throw on some oury grips $15, fork decals $25, a new seat and maybe some skin walls (my personal preferance) and you are good to go. The headbadges are easy to find on ebay. Let me know if you need 2 headbadge screws. Ill shoot them over to you for free.

Congrats!

Good score! yikes
Are those Mongoose label tires? I`ve seen them go for big $ on ebay!


Still searching for my missing bikes from BITD. 1979 Blue Max serial: CI9 221346 and 1977 Webco serial: 42667. Both were last seen at Spoke and Sport Bicycles in Spokane, WA around 1984. $600 reward if found!!

WANT TO BUY 26" MYSTERY CRUISER FRAME!!
