1983 Hutch Pro Racer

A pre serial Hutch Pro Racer.

I bought the frame from Richie in the US. Its been one of my dream bikes (the other being a Skyway TA), so its been a very exciting project. My aim was to try and capture the soul of a Pro Star feel with the build. Original Hutch parts were use where ever possible. Or I chose the best, alternative options that I could find or bid on. Like the repop ESP stem was a great substitution for a Hutch stem. I was so happy to be able to get one of those, which in my opinion, is the only stem (other than a chromed Tuf Neck) that could substitute for a Hutch H stem and still ooze that Hutch Pro Star quality. Thanks Greg for the ESP. The silver Cal Lite pads may not be original Hutch ones, but the bar pad is signed by the greatest Hutch Trick rider ever and is the cherry on the top for this built. 
I will try to find a matching rear magnesium Hutch hub to match my front one, which will eventually replace the Suzue hubs. After that, my bike will be considered complete.
Also a huge thanks to: Michael6290, CJ Trickstar, 1little-e, bmxsis86, floridamar, and Rusty8857 and Devil Frankie. And a huge thanks to Jimmy for the bars. Woody Itson, you are and will always be a true BMX legend. I'm honoured to have your signature on the bar pad of my bike. I may have missed some. But I hope all the ones mentioned get to see where their parts went. Like so many builds on this site, it's a real international project.

Re: 1983 Hutch Pro Racer

Thanks Cython. Ja, shipping can really be a killer to even a bargain price. So we never really get bargains. Its a bit harder for us. But I'm really excited at how it's turning out. Its even better now, but I'll post when complete. Thanks for doing the first comment, My Hutch was starting to feel un-noticed.

Nice build, I like it the way you have it now. BITD many Hutch bikes were built buy starting with a F/F combination and adding the parts you wanted to race with. We had a Pro Racer back then with PowerCranks like you used in your build.

Re: 1983 Hutch Pro Racer

Thanks Mike. So does that mean, like the Skyway TA, which was available as only a F/F, it gives us more freedom to use any era correct parts. I just love the Prostar look and want to get as close as possible with a more realistic budget. I just can't believe what Hutch cranks go for. But I like the unusual aspect of the PC cranks. I don't see a lot of bikes with them. I have got more Hutch parts, so I will update the pics soon. Thanks so much for the comments.
