1983 Sling Shot

I saw one of these as a kid and was always waiting for it to break in half during a race.

Nicely done, don't see these too often!

Re: 1983 Sling Shot

Love it.  What an honor to have my caps on it.


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.

Re: 1983 Sling Shot

Thank you everyone for the awesome comments.  Iโ€™m not the greatest builder, this one took me a long time, but I enjoyed the process and appreciate the feedback.
