1986 Hutch Trick Star

1986 Hutch Trick Star

Custom painted by me as a replica of one I had painted when I was a lot younger.

In about 2004 I was buying up some different colored CW freestyle bars just to make a display on a wall in my house, just because I have always liked them. I bought a set of black ones and the guy I bought them from, Lou, had the rest of the bike to sell me if I wanted it (and I did!) and he introduced me to vintagebmx.com. After seeing some of the bikes and stuff on there, the first thing I wanted to do was re-make my old Trick Star that I had as a young teen. That was the bike I first had a set of the CW bars on, orange ones just like these. I had this orange set already, so that was the start. My original TS was an american f/f in white with green and orange parts on it that I got in '85. In '86 I had some friends of my dad that owned a garage paint the f/f for me. I wanted it a Haro green but they did in in this candy green, which was a surprise to see it, but fine with me. I still had my old seat post from my original bike that I had painted green too, the broken brake levers a pedal. I ended up not putting those parts on this bike right away, but they're on there now. So I started from there. I had the bars and started looking for the rest. Some of the first parts I found were the rear NOS coaster brake orange Tuff II, the green Hutch tires, the ACS Mini-MTN levers, the orange Tuff Neck chainring and the Mushroom II grips. I ended up buying a set of the new orange Tuff II's just to get the front mag, which matched perfectly to the 20-something year old back one. I eventually had most of the parts before I even had a frame. I knew I was going to re-paint whatever one I got this green so I wasn't looking for anything nice, and would have really liked using an american frame, but I came across a really beat up chrome japanese one for a good price and it was the way to go. I stripped down some super crusty old white forks and painted the F/F myself with these House of Kolor rattle cans. I first tested it on the forks to see if it looked any good, and I was happy with it so I bought some more and did the frame too.

Long story short.  Great Bike and nice color combo.  Orange and Green look too sweet together.

If Michaelangelo from ninja turtles had a signature model...it'd look something damn close to this.  This bike rules!!

Re: 1986 Hutch Trick Star

i was looking it over again that 86 pic is awesome.. just wondering why you did not build it exactly the same? the parts that are different dont apear to be ones that would be hard to get..

Re: 1986 Hutch Trick Star

Thanks for the comments!

"just wondering why you did not build it exactly the same?"

I still will probably switch out a couple things. I do have an orange drainpipe post on it now, like I one I had on it back then, so the fluted post is gone. I also have a set of 1-piece cranks and I got some orange paint for them to match the ones I rode back then too. If I put those on, I also have one of my original Hutch hi-cal pedals that were on the bike when I picked it up from the shop in Nov '85, that and the other one that I have since picked up will go on it too. I just always wanted Redline flights, I had them at the time I finished it, so I put them on. I'm thinking of putting those black Flights on another rider though, so I most likely will switch them out this summer.


"Loving this bmx dude, nice chain on it."

Thanks! That chain was a pain to put together, thanks for noticing it!

Re: 1986 Hutch Trick Star

Thanx! Yeah that shop was awesome. A guy, Chris, that worked there posts on vintage, goes by "RIDE A BIKE".

The bike's got another slight change and another coming soon. I ended up putting my original seatpost from it on there, I had in in a milk crate all these years. It was a Hutch layback, white originally, but super bent. I had it painted the candy green way back when I had my original TS painted. I read a post about straightening seat posts by getting a long lag bolt and pounding it in there, then sawing off the head of the bolt. It worked! Makes it heavy, but super strong. It's a bit chipped up but so cool to have on there. I'm also working on geting a set of 1-piece Takagi cranks made orange like my originals, then putting my Hutch hi-cal pedals on it. One of those is my original one too you can see in that old pic, I picked up a match on ebay some time ago. I'll get new pix up as soon as it's all done.
