1985 Hutch Trick Star

A replica/recreation of my bike from the 80's

This project was a replica build of the bike I rode in the 80's which I regretfully sold. Somehow by shear crazy luck I actually found my original Sturmey Archer drum brake equipped wheels on this site! This is what started me on the build. Originally I wanted to build it with survivor condition parts but after a time I realized this could take a very long time so I had to get parts as they came around. So the bike is a mix of original survivor parts, restored parts and a couple new production parts.
The build can be followed here http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=497930&p=1

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

Last weekend by some crazy chance timing I ran into a couple local guys as they were riding past my place. Got to take the bike for a spin for the first time since building it.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

A couple months ago I decided to tone the 80's down a little and picked up some decent original chrome Araya 7L's (like the pink ones are) found a set of NOS sturmey archers and laced up the new wheels with stainless spokes and purple ano nipples and wrapped in the new panaracer tires.
This will be the "rider". If I ever hang the bike up and no longer ride it ill put it all back like it was when I was a kid. Hopefully that will be a long ways away. 
Thanks all for the kind comments. I'm loving riding this thing again!

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

Can you post a pic of the other side of the front wheel please...
Want to see how you secured the arm on the front hub to the fork...
Thanks

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

This is a bracket I found on the interwebs. I think it was a "universal sand rail bracket" or some sort of universal mounting bracket. It is 1" ID and already had 2 threaded holes on the one side of which I used to mount the home made bracket that secures the brake arm. I would have liked to make something similar in a lighter and more compact design but just haven't got around to it. This one is a little heavier aluminum than I hoped but that arm isn't moving anywhere! On my original bike back in the day I used a "U" bracket with a block of wood. It was primitive and not very secure. The front brake as I recall was a little squishy From movement. I noticed you ask about another member bike on their installment. At closer look that bike is only using 2 zip ties. I'd guess those front brakes likely don't work for squat and possibly snap the ties off in quick time. I could be wrong though.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

I picked up some of the new blue Panaracer tires (also got whites but haven't tried them yet) and made a few changes once again. I put a set of Araya 7L's in blue ano as well as a Hutch power disc. I'm thinking maybe a blue seat might balance things out a bit better. But that's it.
Now it's time to enjoy riding this thing for the spring/summer.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

Thanks. I'm pretty happy with it now. A bit flashy for most folks but I like it.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

Very cool.  Would love to see it with the white tires.  I guess the problem is, after a bit of riding, the whites don't look too awesome.  haha.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

Yeh, I was trying to visualize the white tires. Maybe over the winter I will mess with it and mount them. The dirty thing is a problem but I dont recall it stopping me back when I was a kid. I will post pics if I do change the look again.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

Aaand finished!
I made some changes as if I might have finished the bike. A little more balance to the colors. Keeping all of the "original look" parts for when/if I ever retire the bike.

Re: 1985 Hutch Trick Star

Thanks radovr, much appreciated.
The pegs are Odyssey MPegs and they go onto the axle and the nuts goes on to tighten things up. They are opened up for 14mm axles but also come with a spacer to take up the gap and use on 3/8 axles.
That said, I don't really care for them. While they may be fine for someone who does grinds and all that, my original bike had a similar chrome peg back in the 80s and at the time this was the only "off shelf" peg I could find that looked the closest.
I'm pretty sure my old ones were a thinner gauge, smaller diameter and shorter in length. These MPegs are HEAVY and very long. Just last week I finally got to cutting about 1.5 inches off each peg for now.
In the future I may just order another pair of "PUNK pegs" like I use on my 24" and possibly machine the surface smooth and polish to mimic my original pegs.
The PUNK pegs are real nice, super light aluminum but I also felt the need to trim the ends about an inch or so as they are kinda long. The unfortunate part on the PUNK pegs is they are a little expensive.
