I Just Lost My Brother

My oldest brother, Paul, passed away a little less than half an hour ago.  He had been in declining health for a number of years, and he was admitted into hospice care yesterday.  While my family and I knew the end was approaching for some time, this is just...weird.  Please keep me and my family in your thoughts and meditations.  We will need whatever positive energy you can spare.  I dedicated this song to him while driving home from Critical Mass last night, and I'll also add one of his very favorite songs.  Thanks.

Re: I Just Lost My Brother

Sorry to hear it Ant.  May you somehow find peace in this time.


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.

Sorry to hear man.

Would love to find my old Dirt Bike.  It was stolen in Pompano Beach, Florida in about 1996.  It's a '92 with the block graphics on a Green frame.  Pitchforks, Slam bars, King Headset, GT (DK-style) stem and GT/Profile cranks.  Superlace hubs.  Would really love to put this back in my collection.
