Here is a look at the bikes I've been building up over the past couple of years. I started out restoring my 85' Hutch Trickstar, and ended up owning four other bikes that I always wanted. I don't build bikes to stock specifications, but rather how I would've modified them from thier original state. All of these bikes are ridden, by myself and some lucky friends. It's good to know that technology from the "Old School" can still take a beating! The 84' Sport is a project bike that I bought for Mark to replace the one he used to own that "went missing" sometime in the early 90's. The 86' Hutch Trickstar is Marks new bike that he's built up to ride, and will replace a couple of parts to make it his perfect setup later.
1988 Hutch Trickstyler Limited Edition

The Trickstyler is fun to ride. Although it's built on the Trickstar geometery, it's a totally different bike. It shares the stable feel of a flatland machine, but is much heavier than the Trickstar due to all the extra tubing. I built this bike up from a F/F and slowly found the parts for it. It's got some parts on it that I would've changed from the original equipment like the Z-48's, the Jive Handles, and the ACS levers. The other parts are not stock specs because of avalibility/price issues. I'm not putting Hutch freestyle pedals with gold plated cages on here and a gold plated Hutch Pro stem is just a bit ridiculously priced these days, and forget about finding some Hutch freestyle tires in black for under 150 bucks.

1985 Hutch Trickstar

This has been in my possesion since late 86' when I bought it from my friend Mark. I broke my 86' Purple Reign frame/fork and wanted another Trickstar so I got this beauty which was made here locally in Pasadena, Maryland. When I restored this bike and sat on it for the first ride, it was like being reunited with an old friend. I'm so comfortable on this set up it's just wrong. I'm more comfortable riding this than I am walking...! I've always ran this basic set up although the original build had the ACS RL Edge rims, an ACS Rotor 45 stem, white CW freestyle tires, Jive Handles grips and a Peregrine disk.

1987 Hutch Windstyler

This is the newest addition to my Hutch collection and completes the Freestyle trilogy of bikes made by Hutch that I wanted. I picked this up for cheap and already had the blue Woody bars to go along with it. The rest of the parts were in my shed just waiting for a bike like this. It's fun to ride and is actually kinda close in feel to the Trickstar. My only gripe is the rear standing loops are a bit too far forward and my heels hit them when I pedal. Other than that it's a welcome addition and will get lots of use. I'm looking for a Hutch spider and chainring for this.

Hutch Pro Racer

Ok, I bought this frame/fork on Ebay for 75.00 if you can believe it. I wasn't sure if it was really a Pro Racer but took the sellers description to be true. When I received it the first thing I did was measure the top tube of course. It's 19.5 inches from the center of the headtube to the center of the seat tube and the wheel base is 36 1/4- 37 3/4 inches long, plus it has the slack headtube angle. It's pre-serial number and pre-Nora Cup stickers so who knows what year it really is. It's built to go fast regardless of the year or model it is. I would love to get a set of 85' GT Pro bars to replace the no-name ones. This is a fun bike to ride and is so ridiculously light and fast.

1986 Haro Sport

My trusty 86' Haro Sport has been built up to be a replica of the stock specifications that were offered when new. I've upgraded a few things to make it my ultimate build and changed the color on a couple of parts as well to suit my taste. The finished result is my new favorite bike to ride and look at.

85' Skyway Streetbeat

I picked this F/F up recently when all those "raw" unfinished F/F sets were going cheap. I hadn't ever ridden one so I figured I make some good use of a set of black Tuff 2's I had laying around and build a bike around them using this F/F set. I spray painted the F/F and clear coated it myself. I only had to purchase a couple of items to complete this bike since I had tons of stuff laying around in my stash. It's fun to ride and SUPER light. I have to run Haro Multi-surface 3's on the Tuff Wheels just so I can run 50 - 60 PSI in the tires and have them stay on the mags.

82' Redline MX-II

I picked this F/F up off of the DC Craigslist for super cheap and sold off the parts that came on it to get this for free. It's a perfect starter bike for when my son is big enough to ride a 20 incher. Lot's of parts were donated to the cause and I'll be sure that my son knows who gave what. It's a small frame and the bars were cut so it's a perfect fit for a little guy. Can't wait until he can ride it.

Hoffman Big Daddy

This is the newest addition to my collection thanks to Brett Downs. I Traded my 87' Master F/F for the Big Daddy F/F and transfered most of the parts over to it. It is built up as my daily rider. The parts came from all over the place and most were given to me free. Much thanks to all who donated parts to make this bike happen!

1986 Hutch Trickstar

This is the Trickstar I got for Mark by selling his Redline RL-20 II frame/fork. I was gonna keep this frame/fork and build it up but wanted him to have it instead. I donated the seat, stem, and disk from my chrome Trickstar since I had bought all those new parts for it. This bike will soon have KHE Stimulatorz pedals (MKS Graphite X copies) and a black/silver Hutch sypder with a black Takagi 42 tooth sprocket. It's a super nice Trickstar and I'm glad it's in the family.

1984 Haro Sport

I bought this bike part by part for Mark to replace the one he owned that was "lost" sometime in the early 90's. I found this frame/fork on Ebay and got it for I think 125.00 from a shop in West Virginia who had it since 84'. They had built it up and it didn't sell so they took it apart that fall and put the frame/fork back in the box and down into the basement it went until 2002 when I bought it. I sent it to his shop where he worked and it blew his mind. I had him make up a wish list of what the setup would be and started sending parts his way. He built this up as a replica to the one Rich Sigur rode around the 84'-85' years.It still needs a chain, but this isn't going to be a rider so it's probably best that doesn't have a functioning drivetrain. He has a blue Haro Flo panel and blue Skyway FS Tuff pads to put on still.

1974 Libertas

1974 Libertas Roadbike Mini with 14" X 1 3/8" (350 X 32) wheels! I restored this bike for my sister-in-law who has owned it since she was a child. It is the only one I've ever seen and let me tell you it wasn't easy finding Michelin Tires in 14" X 1 3/8" sizing. The original Pnuematici Clements were dry as a bone and practically cracked off the rim. This is my favourite project bike so far as it was the most challenging to find parts for. I used Cinelli cork tape to wrap the handlebars and rebuilt the hubs and the Weinmann brakes back to working order. I taped off the stickers and repainted the frame/fork since I couldn't get another sticker set.
