SKYWAY SCORE.... FINALLY!!!

Hello my brothers... To me, the most iconic, and my favorite bike, of all time is the 1980 Championship Skyway bike. Now of course at that time all Skyway had available was the Tuff Wheel and the Tuff Fork... no frame until 1983. Until then they used the Baby Blue Ripper Frame with the White Tuff Fork and First Gen Graphite Tuffs. I have always wanted to build this bike but never even wanted to start until I had the forks. There was no point. But all of that has changed now... I got them. I have finally found and obtained the ever elusive Skyway Tuff Fork. So happy, still can't believe it. Thought I'd share them with ya'll... https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/264015/63440798015--de388fb6-e785-4c81-a8cc-05b0f15613125653603b0c5384.jpg

Re: SKYWAY SCORE.... FINALLY!!!

Wow!


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.
