Re: R.I.P. Jim Melton

Didn't know JMC too well BITD, and never met Jim, but all indications were top notch product from a top notch guy!  Sorry to hear it.  Rest in peace!


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.

Very sad to hear.  Aside from making some killer bikes, he was a super nice guy.  Prayers go out to his family.
