1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

http://bmxmuseum.com/image/wp_000319.jpg http://bmxmuseum.com/image/smmedlgscale.jpg http://bmxmuseum.com/image/xl22pedal.jpg http://bmxmuseum.com/image/wp_000320.jpg

1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

10% larger Trick Star rider on 22's (mods keep editing this and changing it to 24... it is an XL 22 damnit!)

This custom build started with a US made Trick Star frame and fork, custom stretched/modified by Tim (Theframedoc) to accomodate a set of Faction BMX 22" wheels and tires.  This bike is about the same length as my XL-24, but the standover height is lower, and top tube is longer. 
Has Redline mid-school 180mm flights, HUTCH (JDB) Beartrap pedals with modified cages, Western H stem, Hutch layback post, Hi-Caliber brakes.  This thing rides GREAT -- already my favorite bike for cruising around.  Hutch Baby Blue powder coat by Chip @C4.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

Wow, killer project.  So what has been changed on the frame?  Longer seat/chain stays, top tube/downtube stretch, longer forks?  The result looks really nice.  I had know idea about the existence of 22" rims until now.  That is really sweet.  I wish that Knight or Kappa would make a run of these in 24".  Of coarse, I would probably find out to late like I did with the Proformer.


Cool, a new bike.  Wait a minute.......where am I going to hide this one.  She's going to catch me...

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

Technically yes... But it would have a really long rear triangle, and a rear brake caliper wouldn't reach the rim so it would have to use a coaster brake if it had a rear brake...

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

Yes, yes, yes, yes smile  All those tubes, plus the seat tube is stretched a little taller as well. 

Chip @ C4labs and Tim @theframedoc can both do custom 24" Trick Stars; there are a couple of them on here in the Museum.  I wanted to do something that was more like an extra large Trick Star, less like a Trick Star "styled" XL-24... So far I really like the feel/size of it.  Much different than my XL-24 (which I also love to ride!)

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

so you are like 6'5"?  Pretty sweet I must say.  I always see the cut down or chopped (pit bikes) but I rarely get to see the opposite.  I would love to take this for a test ride.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

No, not 6-5 I am under 6 feet tall -- I still ride my 20" Trick Star too, but wanted to build an oversized one for cruising around but still be able to pull a show off move here of there on demand for kids  lol

I love riding my XL-24, but I am a freestyler at heart... basically, I had to have a big Trick Star, but smaller than a 24" smile

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

I just took this out for its first official ride -- LOVE IT.  Currently it is geared a little high, but I may keep it that way for a while, for cruising around on it.  Super comfortable bike to ride, the TT length and standover height both feel really great... pretty soon I will be breaking it down and sending it out to Chip for powder.  big_smile

**Update 5/20/2011** Tore it down and sent it out to Chip for powder... Pic posted, it is being shipped back my way today!! cool

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

Added new pic that compares it in size to my 20" Trick Star and my 24" XL24 -- riding it daily now, but it still needs some finishing touches.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star XL 22

Who else is going to step up and bring an 80's frame up to 22"s?  Maybe a Redline RL20ii22" ? cool


20", 22", 24", and 26" !
