Hutch TrickStar fork variants

I was wondering how many variants of "pegged" Trickstar forks Hutch made?  I am not talking about the forks found on the later bikes like the Windstyler or the first gen of forks that had no pegs.

I know they made a short peg and a long peg, but did they make one in the middle too?  Or was it just the fact there were so many inconsistencies with manufacturing that you just got what you got?  Maybe its just my eyes playing tricks on me?

Re: Hutch TrickStar fork variants

Resurrected!  lol

I have found myself lucky enough to be the proud owner of a second Trickstar smile and I can see a definite difference in the length of these two fork pegs.  Just wondering if anyone knows what the deal is here or if its just variations in the manufacturing process.

Bike #1 (long pegs) are  1-15/16" long
Bike #2 (shorter pegs) are 1-7/16" long

See pics....

Re: Hutch TrickStar fork variants

I’m interested. What’s the difference in forks other than the measure?  Are they us or overseas?

Re: Hutch TrickStar fork variants

I like to show off my minty 87 wind styler fork while still in almost NOS condition. https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/220163/e8d55c01-e165-439d-bf9a-7c4df389ae045cebd2c8e6.jpeg

Re: Hutch TrickStar fork variants

Word is If your Trick Star forks have slightly longer pegs then it's likely made in Taiwan

Re: Hutch TrickStar fork variants

Every 84 I have owned had short pegs. I have owned a US made 85 with long pegs as does a buddy of mine. I’ve only owned one Japan made TS and I’m pretty sure it was a short peg but didn’t measure to see if it was the same length as the US made...

That Windstyler fork pictured above is also slightly different from the ones I have.

What years are the framesets you guys are picturing?

I have yet to come across a Taiwan made TS but I don’t think they came out until late 86 or early 87 and I believe they have a cable guide welded on. No US fork I’ve ever seen had a cable guide welded on it.

Re: Hutch TrickStar fork variants

One for certain is USA, no baseball.  The other I'm pretty sure is USA but I don't have all the powder coat cleared away to see the whole number yet.

Re: Hutch TrickStar fork variants

US and Japan standing platforms are a little different so you might be able to determine what you have that way cool
