1983 Hutch Pro Racer

Josh's new ride...Dad's old Pre S/N Pro Racer...updated

So I reach up in the high storage of my garage this past summer and grab a hold of my distant past...this Pro Racer f/f that we've had in storage since 1986.  Between my brothers and I, we had 1 Skyway, 2 Hutch's, and a Robinson.  I raced a bit, road 1/2 pipes, and dirt jumped...but then I had to go and grow up (phooey) and we packed up the left overs.  All that remained was this f/f and a few other pieces.  Now I have an 11 year old son, and I've got to bring him up right (old school) so time to bring this bike back to life.  We built it with the theme of "genuine old school characteristics", meaning maybe current production (CP), but at least same old manufacturer/same model.  Josh can't stop grinning....  Specs (Updated Jan '11):
