  1. I've got a couple of orignal SST stickers (race and freestyle era). Looking for one more.
  2. Im not sure if anyone here will have an answer to this question or not. I have an original, Hutch deep H stem that I need to convert to a Potts Mod stem for an early Hutch Trick Star. Due to the short length of the stem's shaft, I know that the following parts won't work because they are too long: ACS Potts Mod bolt and the hollow bolt from a Hutch Western H stem with the longer shaft. If these bolts are trimmed down, there is no thread left for the wedge. How does one perform the Potts Modification to a Hutch deep H stem? I know it was done back in the day, but I'm not sure what type of hollow bolt was used.
  3. That wasn't an SST Command Post. The internal brace looked very Tioga-esque and it had some goofy sticker on it that made no sense at all.
  4. Nice find. Here is a 100% complete, survivor Hutch Judge. The Hutch bars are the same color as your Pro Racer frame/fork. The frame/fork on the Judge is more of a translucent red.
  5. Cool bike, Tom! A local collector has that same frame in black and I'm sure that you know who I am talking about.
  6. has not set their status

  7. Those look fake as sh**. The teeth are not correct and they look like they had the sh** polished out of them. Who did you buy them from?
  8. This thread keeps getting stranger and stranger. Duke, do you have experience with beating up boys? Not sure why you resort to violence now. First, you made goof ball threats, and now you want to beat me up? I think you have a problem with PayPal, not me. Seven words from you would have rectified the situation from the get go. They are as follows: “Send the hub back, I'll fix it”. Excuses from you wouldn't fix the hub and I had to protect my interests by filing a dispute with PayPal. I never asked them to freeze your account and I never asked them for anything that was not reasonable. You really believe that I extorted you for $100.00? That covered my Suntour hub, tools, grease, and time. Extortion would have been asking for $500.00 or $750.00 back because those amounts are obviously unreasonable. By the way, I didn't even see your response to PayPal, but I imagine it went something along the lines of “PayPal, I'm the wrong guy to mess with”, or “PayPal, I'm driving by your office this week and I'm going to give you a manly ass kicking”. I dunno what else to say. Its a nice hub and I'm happy with it. With regards to my business dealings, Duke, I'd love for you to email me in private with the three people who made that claim. If you are so well endowed, post their names and or deals here. I've been described as picky, particular, difficult, a purist, opinionated, a dick, etc., -but- I don't scam people or refuse to send items that are paid for. I have a feeling that you are fabricating that claim as well. I also do not have a big ego and I'm not enjoying this thread (that was started to show some crazy rare hubs). I never swore at you and I never made any threats to you. You went off of the deep end and showed your true colors on this website. I received and saved your voice mail messages, but if you were in my shoes, would you return the calls? You can call me to discuss if you promise that you are not going to yell at me or talk about the difference between a boy's versus a man's ass kicking. I also don't care if you are handicapped and/or well endowed. You know my number: (404) 556-####. There is no reason to think that I work for a lighting company (???). That would be quite a coincidence, wouldn't it? Cough..*bullshit*..cough. Look in your cell phone under 'received' or 'missed' calls...my number and/or name are there. I must warn you though...I already spent the $100.00 on parts and my own labor, so there is no money in your future. The sad part is that I would still buy another one of these hubs off of you for more money because they are that damn rare! I need help.
  9. Colloquialisms and bullshit. Is that what you do best, Duke? What is the phone number that is one digit off from mine? **crickets** Let me guess on the mystery person who turned you onto this website. Do the initials start with J.J.? Maybe things would be better under different circumstances, but why would an adult (most likely older than myself) make 3rd grade playground threats and outright lie about coming to visit me, my phone number, etc.?
  10. The whole handicapped thing disturbed me as well. I doubt that Duke is aware that there are at least two handicapped members on this website, and because they get through life without the 'victim mentality', their handicap has never been an issue with any members here, nor has it ever been brought up. Duke, I spent $43.00 (plus shipping) for an NOS Suntour hub, $29.00 for a brand new Spin Doctor cone wrench set, and $8.00 for synthetic grease. I did the work myself because a certain member here (you know who) walked me through the disassembly process without damaging it. You offered no solution except to broker a re-sell of the hub for me. You infuriated me when claimed that all I needed was a $2.00 Suntour part. Please show me (and other members) where I can find a $2.00 Suntour bearing cover by itself that hasn't been produced for a long time? Bottom line is that you were all talk and were not truly concerned with making me happy after purchasing a $1625.00 hub from you. On top of all of this, you made child like threats and lied to me about two things: A) you were coming to Georgia to visit me. B) you claimed that my cell phone number was one number off from a lighting company that your construction company uses. To prove that you are not a liar, what is the name of the lighting company and/or what is their phone number? I will confirm whether or not you are full of it. I did not lie to you and told you exactly what I would do. I now have a nice, working hub and you received a good chunk of change and a positive feedback. If you have a problem with Paypal and their dispute resolution process, then perhaps you should carefully construct your argument next time (you had your chance) or cease using PayPal to eliminate the chance of becoming a 'victim'.
  11. Read your auction description and please thoroughly read my posts on this topic. I know that the hub was used (as previously stated in my first response to you). I don't talk with a lisp or have any other speech impediment. You've resorted to making fun of peoples' avatars now? You're really reaching with that. I have a feeling that you will be a great asset to this website.
  12. No, my description is pretty much how it went down. Not advertised as NOS? Read your description. "brand new condition, never used" http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150412037487&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT No reason to talk to nut jobs. Anyone know how to download voice mail messages to audio files? In your voice mail messages to me, you acted like I shot your sizzler off. You called me like five times in a row talking about being disabled, taking away food from your kids, etc. This was after you agreed to a partial refund (???). If someone was not happy with an item that they bought from me, I would ask for the item to be sent back for a full refund.
  13. Below is the dialog from eBay where Duke agrees to a partial refund: From: 13duke13 To: 401flightcranks Subject: Re: 401flightcranks has sent a question about item #150412037487, ending on Feb-13-10 17:09:22 PST - Vintage bmx SST freestyler footbrake hub Woody Itson Sent Date: Feb-22-10 10:56:44 PST Dear 401flightcranks, PLEASE Mark, Call me, or take $100 from paypal to untie my funds.

I explained my case in a reasonable manner and requested a $100.00 refund or send the hub back for a full refund. You should be able to properly respond to the dispute. Note that it is a NOT a full blown PayPal complaint and PayPal will give you time to respond with your side of the dispute. I believe that I am being reasonable with my request, as YES, the bearing cover is bent on one side. This is why the old, black grease came out from inside the hub. I believe that the cover is thin guage steel, so its not a matter of bending it back in place (as if it were aluminum for example). If I were to attempt to bend it back in place, it would require a rubber mallett and another blunt tool which may make it worse. - 401flightcranks -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: 13duke13 To: 401flightcranks Subject: Re: 401flightcranks has sent a question about item #150412037487, ending on Feb-13-10 17:09:22 PST - Vintage bmx SST freestyler footbrake hub Woody Itson Sent Date: Feb-22-10 10:21:17 PST Dear 401flightcranks, that claim ties up $1600 i don't have it will cause an overdraw. please allow me to pay you the 100 ,i will do so as soon as you free my account - 13duke13 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: 401flightcranks To: 13duke13 Subject: Re: 401flightcranks has sent a question about item #150412037487, ending on Feb-13-10 17:09:22 PST - Vintage bmx SST freestyler footbrake hub Woody Itson Sent Date: Feb-22-10 10:14:38 PST Dear 13duke13, I already contacted Paypal. PayPal protects both of us, correct? I'm not creating chaos either. You don't seem to eager to help me. Search on eBay for 'Suntour coaster brake hub'. I found an appropriate donor for $40.00 or $50.00 if no one else bids it up.I sent Woody a message this morning and advised him that my hub spins and sounds like there is sand in the bearings. - 401flightcranks -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: 13duke13 To: 401flightcranks Subject: Re: 401flightcranks has sent a question about item #150412037487, ending on Feb-13-10 17:09:22 PST - Vintage bmx SST freestyler footbrake hub Woody Itson Sent Date: Feb-22-10 10:07:51 PST Dear 401flightcranks, I will come to resolution with you. You don't need to harrass pay pal as I have removed funds from account. I don't mind working with you. Do not create unnecasary chaos. As I stated I will resolve with you.

  14. Dear 401flightcranks, Go away, find someone else to rob. - 13duke13 Did this answer your question?

I'm confused. You said in your first voice mail message (yesterday) something about your commercial/residential construction company never doing business with our company again.

I received your voice mail message and I understand that you will be in the Atlanta area this weekend. If you are serious, that works for me. We can rebuild the hub together. As far as hotels go, there is a nice Marriott at I-85 and Clairmont Rd. This is roughly 3.2 miles from my house. As far as food goes, you name it and you will find it in Atlanta. I know of several authentic Mexican restaurants, Thai Restaurants, Korean, Cuban, etc., etc. Are you coming through this weekend? If you fly, I may be able to pick you up at Hartsfield/Jackson Airport. Just curious...you also mentioned that your construction company does business with our company. Are you sure about that? - 401flightcranks -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: 13duke13 To: 401flightcranks Subject: Re: 13duke13 has sent a question about item #150412037487, that ended on Feb-13-10 17:09:22 PST - Vintage bmx SST freestyler footbrake hub Woody Itson Sent Date: Feb-24-10 07:27:37 PST Dear 401flightcranks, there is no way i'm buying tools for you. send me my change, minus any legit expence. - 13duke13 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: 401flightcranks To: 13duke13 Subject: Re: 13duke13 has sent a question about item #150412037487, that ended on Feb-13-10 17:09:22 PST - Vintage bmx SST freestyler footbrake hub Woody Itson Sent Date: Feb-24-10 07:23:38 PST Dear 13duke13, You've not been extorted. I'm buying a plain jane, NOS chrome Suntour Coaster brake hub for the bent piece (bearing cover) that I need to replace on your hub, grease from the LBS and the one thin wrench that I need to remove the cone under the coaster brake hanger (also getting from my LBS). I have all of the other tools (I think). I sent several PM's to Woody yesterday and he explained the process of disassembling the hub. I'm going to give it a go and if I run into any problems, he advised me that he will help me out. - 401flightcranks -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From: 13duke13 To: 401flightcranks Subject: 13duke13 has sent a question about item #150412037487, that ended on Feb-13-10 17:09:22 PST - Vintage bmx SST freestyler footbrake hub Woody Itson Sent Date: Feb-24-10 06:17:08 PST Dear 401flightcranks, I feel like I have been extorted.

  15. Yes, I bought the hub from Duke. Its not my claim to fame, as I have no claim to fame. The hub was listed as NOS and one of 90 hubs made (???) with 9 of those hubs set aside for Gold Trick Stars (???). However, I had spoke to Duke prior to the auction's end and he advised that it was laced and used at one time. I was fine with that. When I received said hub, I noticed that the bearing cover under the coaster brake hanger was bent inward. The black, ink like substance leaking out was the old grease. The hub spun and sounded like there was sand in the bearings. OK, I knew that the hub needed re-greased and re-built. Not a problem, but I had to buy several items to fix the problem: 1 NOS Suntour coaster brake hub to scavenge the correct bearing cover, one cone wrench (not exactly something that you can buy at Lowe's) and new grease from my LBS. I did the work myself, and the hub spins great now. Its important to note that I did not ask PayPal to freeze Duke's account. I don't have the power to do such a thing because I do not own PayPal. I wanted to send the hub back to Duke for a full refund, but he stated that he would work with me. I asked for a partial refund or full refund (less shipping) and the hub would have been promptly shipped back to Duke. Duke sent a partial refund of $100.00 to me via PayPal (the amount that I requested). Once PayPal closed the dispute, Duke started to leave me strange voice mail messages on my cell phone and sent me messages through eBay. He wanted $100.00 back, then $80.00 and finally, $50.00. The last two voice messages on my cell phone are comic gold! He claimed that his family's construction company does business with my company and further stated that his company would no longer do business with our company. Duke has no idea what I do for a living. In Duke's second voice mail message (last week), he claimed that he was coming through Georgia for work and would visit me. He told me that he was "the wrong person to mess with", etc, etc. I said "OK" in an email to him and recommended a nearby Marriott and a couple of restaurants. I also advised that he could come over and help me re-build the hub if he wanted to. If there was a way to add my voice mail messages from my cell phone to an audio file for this website, you guys would be in tears. In short, I told him exactly what I would do...and I did it.
  16. Not outing the auctions...because they are over. Did anyone notice the four (yes - 4!) SST coaster brake hubs (ie: Woody Itson Freestyler) that sold on eBay in the last 17 days or so? There could not have been too many shipped to the east coast, let alone 10 going to Rhode Island (per the seller). Hot damn! The ultimate freestyle hub in my opinion. Did these go under the radar or did other people see them?
  17. First gen Bullseye cranks. 1983 ish? 180MM and original chrome. Only set I've ever seen with this finish.
  18. Agreed. A LONG GHP frame is not easy to find. 19.5" top tube.
  19. Thank you for the answers folks. Just for clarification, those ACS lever(s) pictured above were sold by me well over a year ago on eBay. However, I now have a chrome 1984 Trick Star to build and I want those levers (again). I have located a set for sale, but I have no clue as to value. Are these high dollar pieces? The seller knows what he has, but wants an offer. He claims that he has been offered $300.00 for his set. Is he BS'ing me? I haven't a clue what to offer him. $100.00? $200.00? BTW - I sold mine on eBay for $20.00. LOL! I thought most ACS stuff was junk.
  20. New territory here. Pictured is an ACS locking lever that looks a lot like a Dia Compe Tech 3 lever. My question: Did Dia Compe also make a version of their Tech 3 lever with a locking button? Thank you.
  21. Wow! Super clean and historically significant build(s) pictured right there!
