Re: Gt jr Performer is it a 87 or 88

Actually it's July of '88.


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: Gt jr Performer is it a 87 or 88

I’ve sent this picture to a few people and it seems like half day 88 and some say 87. I’d have to say it’s an 88 myself but not 100


Looking for...   *89 GT PP or PFT Survivor *1989 GT Aggressor *1990 Dyno Pro Compe *Dinky Dyno 1990 OG *AME 80’s Flangeless Tri Black Grips
