1985 Hutch Trick Star:

I wanted a Trick Star so bad when they first came out, a friend of mine ended up getting one (crazy story for another day) and I was so jealous of it compared to the bike I had. When I saw this beauty of a Purple Reign survivor pop up I had to have it. Building this bike was a labour of love that took me years to hunt down the parts I wanted, to build a dream of mine from the '80's. Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.

The bad news... this was the only freestyle entry this year.   :nonono:


The good news... this is a sweet OG finish freestyler.   :rockout:



I'm adding this bike to the 20" 80's bikes for voting.  As far as I'm concerned - this is a worthy freestyle winner, I just wish you could have taken the title under better and more competitive circumstances.


So... I'll leave this bike here I guess, but it's description will be placed in what is now essentially the 80's open class ballot, and it will link back to the entry for the Trickstar above.
