I've got one. It says Ariake on the rear, Jaguar underneath as well as 1984, and GT BMX on the nose on both sides.
Some one correct me if I'm wrong, but I think mine is the first generation GT seat.


I have a US shipping address.

It's a first gen Andy lol. Jokes aside there should be some molded marks under the seat that might help identify smile

This is my ‘84 GT freestyle version. The race versions that I have seen had a more defined edge across the back and still had Ariake printed on them like the Shotgun II’s. Who knows though for sure though, your’s looks like mine cool

Re: Is this a 1st Gen GT seat?

Are there remnants of "GT BMX" near the nose?


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.
