Re: 1982 Hustler Pro

I tell Ya, finding this website and seeing the photos of the same bike I used to race with,brings back some old memories,the Good old says.hanging out at Ralph's bicycles helping spoke the wheels for my custom hustler,had some nice fillwood hubs,D.K goose neck, power lite handle bars and ofcorse a 3 piece Red line crankest, but I remember the cereal number was either sh 109 or sh 110,can,t be sure cause It was decades ago and my neibor and best friend in BMX gladiators bought his frame just after I bought Mine and we both memorized our cereal numbers.
Wish I still had so I could give it to my daughter.
