Homemade Trick Star tribute

My buddy got board and decided to make his own TS. He has a mini machine shop at home and does a lot of custom car fab work, he liked my ts and decided to build one for himself. This is two evenings work.

Re: Homemade Trick Star tribute

1" on this but we've talked about doin a 1-1/8" integrated, mid BB, and bigger seat post on the next. He's not really into bikes but appreciates the old school stuff.

Re: Homemade Trick Star tribute

Very neat..bending the 5/8th for looptails is tricky..
Looks awesome so far..I suggest making top tube longer!

Re: Homemade Trick Star tribute

Love to do something like that in my garage, it looks really cool.  So the parts where the bolts are on the headtube, are "perforated" so they get cut off later?  Also, the wall thickness looks huge - should be strong and heavy.


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.

No, it has adjustable lock collars to hold it to the jig at the headtube.  It's just bolted to the jig at the bb and headtube shells.

BMXKID4EVER, here's what's under the cover, he's building this now, he's building the ts so he can procrastinate  on the '67 lol
