1985 Hutch Judge

1985 Hutch Judge

I tried to make this one unique.......

I started out collecting parts to make this a "replica" of the white Judge in the famous Hutch ad that Timmy Judge is kneeling next to. I had a few anodized blue parts laying around, and a sweet wheelset with blue Suntour sealed hubs. I mocked up the bike one night when I was bored, and it changed my direction on how I wanted this bike to be built.
I'm sure alot of you will agree, trying to match up blue anodized parts from different companies can be a real pain! Alot of the parts I bought for this build I didn't end up using, because the blues didn't match at all. Anodized blue Hutch components from back in the day are really hard to find now in any condition, and they all seemed to be more of an aqua color.
Anyways, here's the breakdown.......
 
Frame & Fork - 1985 Hutch Judge (powdered white)
Headset - Tange 125 (original chrome)
Stem - Hutch Deep H (blue)
Bars - Hutch 2nd Generation Pro bars (powdered white)
Numberplate - Hutch (black/white)
Grips - Original NOS Oakley B1-B's (blue/white)
Lever - NOS Dia-Compe Tech 3 (blue)
Seatclamp - NOS Hutch doughnut (blue)
Seatpost - Hutch straight (powdered white)
Seat - New Kashimax Aero w/Hutch logo (blue)
Brakes - NOS Dia-Compe MX1000's (blue)
Cranks - Original Hutch Aerospeeds 180mm (re-chromed)
Disc - New Hutch Aerospeed disc (blue)
Pedals - Original Hutch w/new blue cages
Chain - NOS Izumi (chrome)
Freewheel - Shimano 333 (chrome)
Rims - NOS Sun 20x1.75 (chrome)
Hubs - NOS Suntour sealed (blue)
Tires - Tioga Comp III's yellow label re-make 20x1.75 f&r
Caps - NOS Blue ABA Rad Kaps
Pads - New Hutch (blue)

Re: 1985 Hutch Judge

I like the color scheme Bob. It looks great. Do you know that a replica from the Judge add would have to be a Pro Racer?  If you go back and look the add closely the white bike TJ is kneeling next to is a Pro Racer, because at the time of the shoot they didn't have a frame completed yet. The pictures of the red and blue frames were added in the art department before printing.

Yep, I had heard that. I always loved that bike in the ad back in the day, but never realized it wasn't a Judge until a few years ago. It wouldn't be hard to change my bike to look like that one......but I think I will keep it as it is.
Thanks for the compliments!

Re: 1985 Hutch Judge

I agree, you built a work of art!  Very nice, and different from the norm.  You should post the ad in your pics.:)


Cool, a new bike.  Wait a minute.......where am I going to hide this one.  She's going to catch me...

Re: 1985 Hutch Judge

An absolutely killer build. It is just ice cold. One of my favorite bikes on this site. Blue really pops on the white. Great job!
