My insane Hutch Trick Star from BITD

I thought these pics were gone forever, then a box from my mom shows up in the mail yesterday. I'm thinking this was around 85-86. It was before 48 spoke wheels I know that.

I've always been a big guy and graceful as an ox. 36 hole wheels would bend and mags were too flexy. So I did what any bike shop tech nerd would do..I drilled a hole between every hole on my wheels and made some 72 spoke monsters!

  Also check out the low mounted centerpull brake. This was before 990's. I remember I used two aluminum tops from a Greenfeild kickstand sandwiched together as a brake bridge. I drilled a hole in the BB and ran a barrel adjuster there..The front drum brake was mushy, but would lock up like crazy.

  I'm pretty sure I know where these wheels are..maybe I need to build this one again. tongue   Enjoy!

those wheels are insane.


LOL Pathetic is having to get a new account because you are afraid of your wife...  Your turn kitten balls ????

If you are OK with your actions why the concerted effort to hide what happened?

Don't screw over those you tell your secrets...its not talkin shit if it's TRUE.

Re: My insane Hutch Trick Star from BITD

COOL!   There was a guy used to ride a 24" in the skate pools (like Pipeline) with laced wheels like that in the early '80's!
