Hi I am new here. I found my old gt and would like to find out more info about it. When I received it when I was a kid it was only a bare frame and had no stickers on it. Any info would be appreciated. The serial number is:

G5H04062

The serial would make it a 1985. Need to see a picture to determine the model.

It isn’t pretty but would like to restore it. Also thank you for the info and let me know if you need better pics

I would guess it's a Mach one or a pro.

Re: GT Serial Number Info

Thank you. Is there any markings on the frame to look for to identify as either?

Re: GT Serial Number Info

It looks fine.  There's nothing on that frame to tell if it is Pro or Mach One, but that year, the Mach One and Pro were the exact same frame....different parts.


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.

Thank you. Looks like I will be shopping for parts and sending it to a good powdercoater if I can find one. I really appreciate it.

Personally I wouldn't do anything if you're sending it to him.

Re: GT Serial Number Info

That's a bit of an oddity, but 2364 (4) is likely an early (February) 1983 Pro (18.5" TT).

Do you know what it looked like before it was refinished?  Sometimes old decals may help with dating...

I'm no expert on the subject, so, expect others to either confirm or dispute my opinion.

Re: GT Serial Number Info

I found an old frame with some gt decals on it. Serial number is 1766158. Any idea what year it is. Looks like a 26" cruiser to me.

Re: GT Serial Number Info

Hey all, I have been reading through posts trying to figure numbers out in my own although I'm getting back and forth a bit on the circled 4. Is it a line the frame was produced on or what? Thanks for the help! https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/270071/20201021_1916565f90f6473e.jpg

Sorry, but you can't upload straight from your computer like that.  Can you email me the pictures?
