1982 Hutch XL-24

1982 Hutch XL-24

Early cruiser (see bend in fork at head tube - perhaps among the first 15 MCS-made), stamped brake bridge

Well, it's been leading up to this bike! Transparent/candy red (over chrome) Hutch XL-24 cruiser. She's in amazing shape! I decided to go chrome/black with the parts, as my 24" Z-Rims were destined for this bike. Tange headset holds a Tuff Neck 2000 stem in chrome, then chrome Hutch cruiser bars and OGK Cobra grips. The seatpost is being upgraded to a Hutch straight post, after my having ridden this layback a while. A black Kashi MX with added Hutch logo is held still by a black Hutch donut clamp. A set of Redline 400s are in place, waiting for a set of Aerospeeds to replace them. They drive a Sugino chainwheel and Izumi black/nickel chain to the Z rims wearing Cheng Shin Comp IIIs in fat/skinny, and black MX-1000s stop her when she's a-rollin'. "New" Hutch pedals in candy red/chrome and Hutch padset makes her complete.

Nice!

Aren't those grips mounted upside down?

Don't think so! BUT, maybe - ??? References an OS photo of them for mounting, and of course they feel right as-illustrated...

Looking good, the black/chrome on red was a good choice.
