1983 GT Expert

Ride #5 - Racing, Dialed In

Okay, I decided to pick up this Expert size racer, either for 'lil Sis to ride with big Bro (on his '84 GT Pro).....or maybe, just maybe...it's a better dialed in racer for big Bro?  He's 11...and I realize now the bikes I've built him so far are the size I was riding @ 15.  Okay for every day riding, but too big for the track.  Took him to the track yesterday on this Expert....wow...what a difference.  He'll be going at it on this Expert this year.  Specs ("CP" = (Current Production)):
 
-'83 GT Expert F/F, non-drilled forks (but...unfortunately...home drilled), "Nora Cup" winner
-CP A'me Tri grips
~'83 Hutch Expert bars
~'92 DK stem
-CP Tioga Beartrap 2 headset
~'83 Ukai 1-3/8" rims, CP DT Swiss SS spokes, CP spoke nipples, ~'83 Suzue Sealed Bearing hubs
~'85(?) Tioga Comp III, rainbow label, skinwall tires, 1-3/8"
-'10 Shimano SF MX330 chrome freewheel (17 tooth)
-CP KMC Z710SL chain
-'84 Sugino one piece cranks (165 mm), ~'83 Sugino spider, ~'83 Tuf Neck chainwheel (43 tooth)
~'83 Tange 28 TPI BB
-'84 Victor 1st gen "XC II style" pedals with homemade cages
~'84 Uni seat
-CP Porkchop seat post clamp ("Dia Compe style)
-'10 'Dia Compe 730 brakes + ~'82 Dia Compe Tech 2 lever

I'm not going to be able to ship until about Friday this week.....Friday the 13th....oh no!

Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

It's worth as much as you're willing to pay #truth

I really was serious with my answer. It's related to how much you want something. But in general, according to what they have sold for previously, you should check the For Sale section. If none are currently being sold, check the box "Only Show Sold" & click Search. Check ebay's completed listings & sold listings too.
