Posted 7 Jul 2010I went to see a friend today who has fallen on some hard times. He has a lot of schwinn stuff. Some real nice, some pretty rough. I took a couple of pictures, but need to get in contact with somebody who knows their schwinn bikes. I am trying to help him sell all of it. He has 3 little kids under the age of 6 and they need the money. If anybody can help me out, I would appreciate it.
There is also a lot of 80's BMX and FS stuff and some early 90's stuff as well. I will be putting that stuff up here soon too. Anyhow, you can email me direct at FSWoody@charter.net. Thanks, Woody.
Here are some pics..

Posted 3 Jun 2010I just wanted to take a minute here and say thank you to Juan Mattos. Over the years and on more than a few occasions, Juan has helped me to find some very HTF parts for some of my old restoration projects. Not only has he helped me, but he has helped Mike D, Ron W, Brian B, and several others I'm sure. Many times, if the parts I needed were for my personal Hutch's, Juan wouldn't take my money. Other times, if it was just something I wanted to build, Juan gave me some great deals on parts I was looking for.
Last year after the OS show, Juan saw some footage of me riding my Diamond Back at the OS event. He asked me why I wasn't riding a Hutch. I told him that it took me a long time to restore my old personal bikes and when I could find the parts I needed, some of them were very expensive in today's market and after all the effort, time, and money I spent on restoring them, I didn't want to thrash them. They had already been ridden quite a bit and that was good enough for me. I told him, if I had an old used TS frame and fork, I would have built it up to ride, no question about it. Not to mention, with all the talk of Hutch redoing a modern day TS frame, I had my hopes up that they would have come out by now, which hasn't happened quite yet.
Anyhow, a couple of months ago Juan and myself got on the subject of me riding a Hutch again. A few days after that conversation, the Trick Star frame, fork, and Hutch FS stem you see below appeared on my door step, free of charge. The only mention of it from Juan was, "quite riding that Diamond Back, you should be riding a Trick Star". So I finally got some parts together to build it up. I'm only missing a rear brake caliper and that's it. I was hoping to have it ready for the Friday night ride down at the Beach before the OS event.
Anyhow, I just wanted the collecting community out there to know the kinds of things Juan has done for so many others in the hobby. Thank you my friend.. Woody
Sorry about the Iphone pic, but you get the idea. When I get it finished, I will post up some riding pics for sure.

Posted 5 Feb 2010Does anyone know how much oil your suppose to use in the monoshock? I recently got an old survivor and I'm giving it a very sound cleaning. The monoshock didn't really shock much-LOL. It's all clean, but I need to know how much oil to add... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, woody.
Posted 12 Jan 2010While looking for some parts over the holidays, I found an old phil wood box full of patches. I must have had this box since around 1980 or so. All the patches were primarily from sponsors a short while after that. The little bag has 4 Hutch Patches in it.
I found these old hats in a box with some of my old uniforms.... These were never used I think, that's why they are still in great shape. I'm not sure who the hat I signed was for, but I guess it never made it to where it was suppose to go. This was from our tour in Japan during the world championships in 84. There are a few pins from other countries on it. Pretty fun to find this kind of stuff, especailly when you have totally forgotten about it.
