It's the Pro racer frame in 19.5 inch.... When this was built the only frames they made were the XL-24, Extra Long Pro Racer, Expert, Junior and Lil Holeshot..... They dropped the "extra long" part after 82 it seemed. It was a marketing ploy I think to announce the frame was long in that most "pro" frames were in the 18.5-19.0 range. (someone else here can maybe explain more??) Of course now-a-days a 19.5 top tube is "low length" or minimum for a pro frame. I see alot of 21 and 22" out there now.

Also note the brake bridge; its a tube type. This frame which I received in Novemebr 1982 brand new was of the Torker style frames as I can recall and it contained the "blank" flat brake bridge. In other words, there were no markings such as "HUTCH" on the bridge, it was just blank and also thin I might add.

Anyway, after a moto at Reid Park in Tucson in January 1983, the bridge cracked in half right down the middle upon locking up in mid air and comming down with the lever still applied. The frame was sent back to Bicycle Harbor in Phoenix where it was apparantly "factory repaired" and came back with the tubular design as you see now. Its weird. New stickers and all, so it was re-chromed after the old one was removed and this one welded on. It looks sweet and looks like it was ment to be there. No signs at all it had a flat bridge. Of course my teenage purist peers back in the day often accused me of rebadging some Huffy into a Hutch, but I'm here to tell you its a 82" Pro Racer. My parents paid $122 from the frame, $66 for the forks.

Thanks for the comments

I could'nt do it dude.... That Tuf Neck is the oldest thing I have BMX. It was bought by my late grandpa in 1980 for me (X-mas maybe??) from Durst Cycle in Champaign Illinios. That baby was orig. black and on my Rampar R-10 before it came over to my new Hutch. I had it chromed sometime in 1983. Anyway, it has alot of sentimental value.

But, if you would like to give me a chrome non-drill "H" stem, I would take it smile ...believe me, I thought about going "all the way" and going Pro Star with hubs, cranks and stem, but this is my bike pretty much as it was when I was young. I have other habits that take up my money besides this thing smile

Not sure about the rust; this bike has no rust what so ever anywhere nor did it when I pulled it out of storage a little over a year ago... It's all been "frame off" rechromed, plus it has been an Arizona bike since 1982. Maybe you see some kind of reflection in the pictures?? We just dont rust down here. If this thing gets any more shine, I will have to wear a welders mask! smile

And I would suspect that a 18.5, if no serial of course, what I would describe as an Expert. Again, the  "extra long" part was just a catch to let all know that "pro" frames were going to be longer since most, at the time, were not that long. Of course (as I said  in another post) a 19.5 by todays standards is a "small pro" frame seeing that Brew and others make like a 22" now.

Re: 1982 Hutch Pro Racer

Just got a hold of the same frame and fork someone drilled the fork for brakes I will find a way to fill or conceal that though. Putting pro-class rims 1.75 front and a rare 1.5  rear with original bullseye hubs bought them new in 1984 with lawn mowing $ cranks will be my original 180 redline flights these were the cranks that every one wanted mine I got half off from the bike shop that sponsored me they are still mint with a 46t redline ring.  SE pro bars re looked like gt only taller.  AME grps is there anything else? mx Brake lever and odyssey pitbull brake.  These came out in 1987 but anyone that had to play with side pulls knows that sometime new can be better.  Pro neck xl stem (the one dk copied.  Fluted aluminum post (bmx products),Kashimax seat.  I have an old mini-UNI seat I used to run but it looks stupid. Hutch dohnut clamp and of course Tioga comp III skinwall tires.  I am not bragging just cool to see someone in the same place as me

OK guys, I just updated the photos from inside to the outside the other day... You can see the bike much better now.

I need Profile stickers for the cranks and I'm done with this restore.

Re: 1982 Hutch Pro Racer

Thanks. It would still require a few things before it could hit pro star status mainly cranks, power disk, hubs, grips and stem. However, the afore mentioned items that Hutch made were not as good as the components that are on it now. For instance the cranks -aerospeeds albeit top $$ now, were and still are crap. They broke. Profile on the other hand -much better. BITD and maybe even today in new school, the best. If Hutch had only stayed with Profile who originally built their first crank sets, they would be much better.

Hubs: Phil Wood. I need say more? They spin forever. Granted, Hutch ti hubs are very nice, but BITD it was "Phil" that was "King"...get it smile

Neck: A western H would be nice, but Tuf Neck is after all the original and king of the aftermarket alloy stem. A Tuf neck is second to none.

And grips; please. The Hutch grip were those hard and uncomfotable platic type Tange grips with stars. Oakley's....my hand still love me today for it.

Re: 1982 Hutch Pro Racer

Just got a hold of a mint set of early second generation profiles 182 the original race size.  Gonna rip those redline 401s off and put those bad boys on.  Just got a profile inferno 46 t sprocket.  This will be one of the sickest Hutches in the museum.  I need about 1 month because I am personally lacing up the pro class II hard add. with original bullseye hubs.  Keep an eye out for the best non-serial shinniest, lightest, most hard-core and original Pro-racer/Pro-Star out there.

Re: 1982 Hutch Pro Racer

Ryan5000, thanks for the comments. Also, thanks to all that have apparently "voted" for it as well.....I'm suprised in that I have not been to this site in a while and just happend to see if anyone has commented on the bike lately.

I'm sorry my friend, it is not for sale. I ride this bike alot, and could never part with it. I wish there were some "old school" shows around here so I can show it. I feel that it could win alot if given a chance. I would like to go to Rockford sometime, but I would need real Comp III's (which I guess I could break down and get into a $300 bidding war for one tire on ebay, which I dont want to really do) and ditch the hop-up kit etc. Also, this bike has  been "hurt" (by a purist standard) due to the fact that some of the parts have been rechromed and repo stickers and such. But I had to since the original was stratched and dull. But I'm glad I kept it after all these years and took care of it so the parts are still good today.

And those 12-15 hour a day bike rides, I do remember them well too!! Man if this bike could talk! smile

See, this is a good reason for you to build one!! Have fun.

Ya what ever. youre looking at it!
this thing is off the hook. i love the little hints of red on the hub washers, chainring and valve caps. true to HUTCH -black chrome and some red. really sets it off with all of that chrome. this is, now, the nicest hutch on here. this bike and a VDC on the other bmx site are 2 bikes i cant stop looking at. take this thing to rockford dude.

super nice bro.

Re: 1982 Hutch Pro Racer

This is still amoungst the sweetest. Off the hook is right. Sick.

I agree -I would have rather had Philwood hubs over Hutch BITD. What is the weight on this?

Still workin' on mine. Hope to get it done soon.

Re: 1982 Hutch Pro Racer

Yes I'm still in Tucson. I live up around Lambert and Shannon area.

The weight on the bike is almost 22 lbs. Somewhere's tween' 21 and 22 based on a few scales I've used to see for myself the weight.

Finally got the crank stickers! 

  ....now if I just had an XL-24 to go with this Pro Racer...
