My old Hutch Trick Star

Hi everyone, Im a new member here but I have been browsing in and out for the past couple of years. I know there are set rules here and I understand why but in my searching could never find an answer to whether or where it is acceptable to post about searching for an old bike from the past. It is likely a lost cause more than a lost bike.

Like many other 'older' guys, I have missed my old bikes pretty much as soon as they were let go. The one I miss most was the one I tended to dump the most $$$ into which also was the last freestyle bike I owned.
In the mid 90s I decided to leave southern NH to spend time in FL. In attempt to lighten my load I was getting rid of anything I figured I wouldnt ever use again. Getting rid of my Hutch was a bummer but I just couldnt see myself riding it much anymore due to me being taller and it was awkward to ride.

So I put it into a local Bike shop as consignment who I often dealt with and at the time,freestyle was dieing quickly, I was lucky to get $180 yikes for it and it took a while to get that.

Ive put off being a member here in effort to refrain from spending money on something I probably shouldnt get. But in the back of my mind Im always thinking it would be cool to have my old bike back...or even try to replicate it to some degree.

anyway, my plea is, has anyone ever seen this bike in the NH area? Its probably fairly likely its been parted out,hopefully not scrapped.
I think it was a 85 or 86 model, look closely you will notice the Sturmey Archer brakes which I think is a bit of a unique feature to stand out among other details of the bike.
I only have these 2 crappy photos.

Welcome to the Museum or shall I call it "The Money Pit" lol

Caleb.......that extra lever is for rolling bar rides. You put the back of your foot on the bars and your toes or front of your foot rest on the levers wink If you look close you can see one on the other side too tongue

Re: My old Hutch Trick Star

Thanks for the welcome folks. I know I just need to suck it up and start a parts pile going and replicate the bike. I suppose this way I can get the color coordination a bit more matching. Some of the non matching parts are parts of older bikes when I couldn't afford to buy something new. I figured maybe it was worth a shot of finding the original bike. It happens with old cars sometimes.

Actually, that side brake was used as a "locker". On some tricks(I forget which ones) I could lock the front brake going into whatever trick it was.

Re: My old Hutch Trick Star

Welcome...and good luck with the Trickstar!


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.

good luck finding it (or something similar) wink

i know just where your coming from... i too sold my trick star, the last bike i had and the most expensive when i was getting out of riding. unfortunately i dont have any pics of mine but im almost done replicating it as close as possible to how i remember it. get ready for a heart attack when you see how much its going to cost you to build it again... you thought it was expensive when you were a kid! yikesmadlol

yeh, I know! The new prices of today are what Ive been trying to steer clear of but it looks like if I want to have a little toy, gotta pay out. Thats the part that kills me so much, not that I could make a ton of cash selling it if I still had it, but the fact I could barely give it away back then and now may have to pay 20 times over!!. I really should have just kept it..live and learn I guess.

Hi, Im basically near the historic area,downtown. close to 'The Antique Depot' area. we will see if I can make any decisions on a bike. sounds fun though.

no, that is factory. weird isnt it? Ive often wondered about that area after seeing other bikes. I thought maybe it was a 85 thing but after cruising through photos after you mentioning it, I see there really is no rhyme or reason from year to year. looks like maybe they just had scraps of different size tube when building the frames and set them to wherever they fit best before welding? In the gallery I see several different years with the same spacing but it seems most of them overhang.

Re: My old Hutch Trick Star

I suppose while im here I will post my other bikes from the past.
My first Trick Star(maybe 84?) was this white one, built from random parts as most of my bikes were done. later when I bought my new baby blue frame I then painted this one gloss black and built a new ride with Vector bars, 48s when they first came out I think and this was for my then girlfriend to play around on. actually got her to do some basic tricks on it.

Then for the non Hutch content, I had 2 Haros from maybe 83-84? The white one is a Sport(edit-turns out to be a FST and looks to be the earliest ones with tapered chainstays and later decals), the green one is a Master which started as chrome but I painted it the green as they started coming out with the green frames. rather than buying a new one I tried to make my own version.
Thats about all I have for photos other than a few crappy action shots from the days.

Good eye!wink...It shouldn't be TOO $$$ to replicate it,look at it this way,atleast it didn't have some Aerospeeds...or some SST hubs!Then you'd be spending some change!

Welcome Mark, Sweet bike you had. However, rebuilding it will probably cut into the barndoor budget a little more then anticipated. wink

There was a custom 22" that popped up yesterday, it might fit a little better then the OG.

So you're over near McGill Street. I'm over on South Union. You should catch our NC Riders thread in the events section.

Here's my Trick Star and Master for inspiration. big_smile

Welcome and you are so SCREWED!!! big_smile
First, I thought you had one Trickstar (awesome pics by the way) to rebuild and that wasn't gonna be so bad.
Then I see pics of your other TS and 2 Haro's. 
GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN!! tongue lol big_smile

When the BMX bug bit me, I got one bike at first.
Well, it manifested to over 50 quickly and took me a while to get to a more sustainable number. lol

Enjoy your stay. Good luck hunting, building and re-living your BMX youth.
Our heart and passion is there. The body takes a wee-bit longer to heal. wink

Busted!! big_smile
you are correct, thats partly what holds me back from spending on a bike. maybe if I spread it a little all around....
you also brought up a good point that I meant to post about and spaced it, I was debating on going the 24" route but I can find too much info regarding such a mod. I found this the other day which I find very appealing.
http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=440032
Im afraid that 22" might be too small still. hard to say. I have definitely considered it. although the other problem is that its already painted. If Im spending the money, I really want the baby blue. for some reason that color option always appealed to me over the rest.
I guess this all leads me to the fact that maybe i need to locate a crapped out frame and fork to modify and paint baby blue and then locate all the parts from there.
