  1. This timeline was a collaborative effort between Ron Klein (area211) and myself. It is a broad overview of early generation Hutch framesets as we understand them and to the best of our knowledge. Also, thanks to Johan (JJRBMX) for the pictures. Some of which were obtained from his website. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- KEEP IN MIND when using the following information that magazine issues are released well in advance of the publishing month and production artwork is created even earlier. That being said, images and statements in any magazine are likely to be from two months or more prior to the date on the magazine. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HUTCH FRAME / FORK TIMELINE (INCEPTION THROUGH 1984): From inception through early-to-mid 1981 (1st generation frames and forks manufactured by Profile with 1st generation decals) Frames can be ID'd by the drilled-hole "HUTCH" in the brake bridge. Additionally, the dropouts have a 'birdmouth' opening at the entry point for the rear axle. The very first Hutch decals were red lettering on white stickers. Oval head-tube decal. Notice in the ad pictured below that one of the forks only has "HUTCH" and not "Racing"; however, all other pictures I've seen have the full "HUTCH Racing" sticker on the forks. There appears to be no seat-tube nor seat-stay decals on the frames. Notice the forks in the following color racing pic have forward facing decals while all other pics have side-facing decals. Perhaps those could have been a 1980 placement (??). Profile-made Hutch forks were known to exist with in-line axle slots directly under the ends of the fork tubes (see picture of Rich Farside's forks above) as well as with forward-facing axle slots with two holes in the dropouts shown further down in this post. ----------------------------------------------------------------- advertised framesets: X-Long pro model Standard model Junior model Mini model (later listed as "Lil' hole shot" in May 1981 BMXA ad) -------- Early/Mid 1981+ (1st generation frames and forks manufactured by Profile with 2nd generation decals) Drilled brake bridge frames - same as pictured above. There are two versions of the 2nd generation head-tube decals. One with "Hi-PERFORMANCE" the other "HIGH PERFORMANCE." Hutch officially used the tag line "Hi-performance." However, decals known to have come directly from Toby Henderson show both: While not proven, die-cut portions of these appear to be what were used on the original Hutch cranks made by Profile... At least they are what appear to have been used on cranks in ads, test models sent to magazines, as well as those on Tim Judge's cranks. A large black top tube decal read "for competition use only" Notice the seat-tube decal which is different from any of the later styles. It says simply "CHROMOLY". It's probably just the poor advertisement printing, but it appears there are no seat-stay decals except on the second frame from the front. Something else to consider is that perhaps the seat-stay decal is the same as later frames; however, it might have just been applied facing outwards rather than upwards... giving the appearance of a full-wrap around sticker when it actually might not have been. Profile-made Hutch forks were known to exist with forward-facing axle slots with two holes in the dropouts as well as with in-line axle slots directly under the ends of the fork tubes (shown above - Rich Farside picture). ----------------------------------------------------------------- advertised framesets: X-Long Pro Model Standard Model Special K Replica Junior Model "Lil' Hole Shot" -------- Early/Mid 1982 through late 1983 (2nd generation frames and forks manufactured by Thruster, MCS, and finally Hutch with classic 3rd generation head tube decals) Western H stamped brake bridge frames included some oddities/QC issues like 1982's blank bridge frames (pictured) as well as double-stamped brake bridge frames: Classic repeating HUTCH head tube decal. Smaller top tube decal reading "Genuine HUTCH WORLD CHAMPION PRODUCT." The following ad seems to have the later seat-tube decal with hutch below the "Hi-Performance BMX semi-circle." While the following seat tube decal is considered specific to 1982 frames: Thruster-made forks were easily recognizable due to their unique dropouts: MCS-made frames are identified by the 'kickstand slot' found in the brace behind the bottom bracket shell: Also shown below is the more common (well known) Hutch Pro and Mini fork dropout: ----------------------------------------------------------------- advertised framesets: XL24 Frame and Fork (Xtra light 24" frame ... Xtra light 24" forks) Xtra Long Pro Racer Frame Expert Racer Racer Frame and Fork (Standard size frame ... fits 11 to 14 year olds) Junior Size Frame (fits 9 to 11 year olds) Lil' Hole Shot (Mini size frame ... fits 6 to 8 year olds) "Send $3 for brochure and sticker pack!" Late 1983+ (Advertised as "New 1984 models now available! ... Hutch has now added, for your identification and protection against theft, an engraved serial number.") --------------------------------------------------------------- advertised framesets: XL24 Frame and Forks Pro Racer Frame + Pro Forks Expert Racer Frame + Pro Forks Junior Racer Frame + Pro Forks Lil' Hole Shot Mini-frame + Mini Forks For additional consideration and assistance in identification, please see the Hutch fork timeline chart below.

  2. Went out to the track last night and next door is a skate park. I was slipping and sliding all over due to a little drizzle. But it was still nice to get out and knock the dust off this one. This bike plagued my nightmares for a few years. Got it from a buddy as a blank frame and then waited for some clean forks to pop up. Which never really happened. So! I nabbed up another chrome frame set, kept the fork and sold the other frame which wasn’t in as nice condition. And here it is. Kept it pretty simple. OPC. No gyro. Etc. super clean look.
