Hutch produced complete bikes from 1980 to 1991 and is considered one of the most collectible and sought after BMX brands of all time. These years are heralded by many as the golden years for BMX. In this spirit, PorkchopBMX.com
, Hutch BMX, and VintageBMX.com
are sponsoring a build off to celebrate those years - the golden years. Now is your chance to take one more trip back to the eighties and relive those times by building a bike in celebration.Rules
This build off will run from June 20th to mid-September (see timeline and dates below) and consist of three forum posts. This announcement and comments thread, a submission thread (open for two weeks) and the voting thread (open for one week). This is a drama free build off. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif

PorkchopBMX.com and Hutch BMX have teamed up to build a gorgeous early 80's Hutch Pro Racer complete with only the highest quality parts, including many of the new Hutch parts such as Aerospeed cranks and powerdisc, deep H stem, donut seat clamp, Hutch Kashimax Aero seat as well as Porkchop items as such as their shinyside rims, Dia-Compe brakes, etc. Thousands of dollars have been invested in this bike and it can be yours just for participating in this build off!
Each completed non-Hutch bike entered will be assigned one number or you can double your chances to win by entering a Hutch (each Hutch bike entered will be assigned two numbers). Once judging of the build off has ended and winners are announced, within 24 hours, Porkchop BMX will use Random.org to choose a number randomly from all completed entries to award the Hutch Pro Racer. The drawing will be videoed and promptly posted on YouTube. The winner will be shipped, at Porkchop BMX's expense, the Hutch Pro Racer via USPS to their address (anywhere in the world).
