1984 Hutch Pro Raider

My Childhood Bike

This is my Hutch 1984 Pro Raider.  The frame is the only thing left from the original bike.  Back in 86, I wanted to start racing and my friend down the street wanted a freestyle bike.  So, He and I switched frames.  I gave him my 85 chrome Hutch Windstyler and in return, got the Pro Raider.   
I have managed to hold onto it for the past 25 years.  Several months ago, my son saw the frame in the attic and we decided that the bike needed to be put back together. I love this bike and have never been ashamed that it was a Pro Raider and not a Pro Racer.  I guess that is why I have taken care of it since day 1.  This is the original chrome, just did an OA bath and used some chrome polish.  When I got the bike back together, I went for a ride and felt like a kid again.  I got that instant sense of freedom.  My Sons love it, my 6 year old will be riding it soon.
06/19/15- Made some changes, Hutch seat and GT seat post.
03/27/16- My "6" year old son mentioned above is now 11.  He loves riding this bike.

Just your typical Aggie Hutch owner. Gig'em.

You have to feel good about having it back out of the attic and built again.

Thanks Mike and yes, it feels great.  I didn't realize how much I missed it until I was actually able to ride it again.

Sweet Raider. It's great you were able to hold on to it and rebuild it. I'm sure there's more than a few of us (myself included) who regret not keeping our bikes from when we were young. Hoping your youngster enjoyed it as much as you did. smile


We're all gonna be three little Fonzies here and what's Fonzie like?
Come on Yolanda! What's Fonzie like?
Cool?
Correct-a-mundo! And that's what we're gonna be, cool.

Thanks, I definitely fell blessed that I was able to keep it after all these years.  My oldest son, who is now 11, loves riding this bike.  The feeling I get from that is hard for me to put into words.  Being calmly ecstatic when I see him ride this bike is as close as I can get.

One of the best compliments I have ever received.
