Craigslist Hutch Judge Score!!! Maybe score of the century?? PIC HEAVY

ok- not THE score of the century...but I think it's a pretty good one. Those "I buy old bmx bikes" wanted ads I post really paid off with this one.

So- I heard from this guy about a week ago. He asked if I would be interested in an all original 1985 Hutch Judge. Ummmm, yeah? Depends on condition and price...same as I tell everyone. Then I don't hear back from him....and 5 days later he drops this bomb of texted pics on me-

GULP.......I waited as long as I could (2 minutes) and texted him back, not trying to sound too excited or anything, and simply asked him if he could pop the black cap off the end of the cranks and snap a pic for me...

Two minutes later, this comes in--

Ok, it's on. This bike is legit. The seller wasn't completely oblivious as to what he had though. A few days of negotiations ensued, a trip across two state lines, and finally I'm back. The first Hutch I've had in my possession since I sold my Pro Racer in 1985 when I quit racing-

It's a restoration, and from what I can tell, a pretty nice one.I've done high end automotive restorations for 25+ years, and can say this was done really well. I believe it's paint, and not powdercoated. Feel free to pipe in (as I'm sure some of you will) tell me I'm wrong, let me know if you spot anything I missed...whatever. But here's what I can tell we have here from my little bit o' old school Hutch knowledge-

1985 Hutch Judge in Baby Blue, with original forks-
What I think are NOS aerospeed cranks (I haven't popped em apart yet to inspect the axle)
Original Date coded Kashimax Aero seat, 7-83, with allen head guts
Original Pedals, painted to match frame (?) - They have the old Japan NR5 bearings
Show chromed Araya 7X rims on what seem to be repop Son Lite hubs (no logo)
Original Comp IIIs
Oakley B2 re-issues
Not sure on the bars, seatpost, clamp and stem...I'll know more when I pull it apart to inspect it.
Pads, original?? They look to be period correct.
Brakeset, maybe newer MX-900s-- again, I'll see if they are date coded when I take it apart.

but here's how she looks in the light of day--

I hear ya-and I totally agree. It wasn't a score based on price, only in that a Hutch Judge fell in my lap, when the usual response to my "bikes wanted" ad is 14 yr olds trying to sell me their trashed verde and kink street bikes--that's all I meant.

Re: Craigslist Hutch Judge Score!!! Maybe score of the century?? PIC HEAVY

hey King Stinger-- here's some pics of the hubs. The flash really lights up the dust!!! Looking at them a little more closely, the bearings looks like they are period- and I've heard the early son lites weren't etched...? Again, I'll take a closer look when I peel the bike apart to inspect all the parts. Right now, I need to go hang with my daughter for a minute. Between racing yesterday, and driving to and from picking this bike up today, I've barely seen her this weekend!!--https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/108873/p1170831573913333d.jpg

Yes, there were either unetched Son-Lites or Pete Locharovich's company or which ever....there were unetched ones.


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.
