I don't know what I enjoyed more? The pictures or no pictures of Hutches. (IMG:http://oldschoolbmx.com/community/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Actually the downhill berm looks really sweet. Please post more.


Ben,

How long do you think a Hutch would have lasted jumping with Motomags like that???? ROTFLMAO!!! Also, a Hutch would have made our Pinto race team travel cars look TERRIBLE! All that chrome would totally clash with the rust/paint combo...

Awesome stuff guys. The formula back then was more substance than style. Keep it "real" as the kids say today.

See all those rocks and the dust....THAT was BMX. All these high dollar frames and parts that everybody's paying silly money for probably wouldn't have lasted more than a couple races at Yarnell, Saddleback, Rancho or Merritt........light ain't ALWAYS right...

I raced in the 70's and early 80's, as well as today. I don't remember the tracks in the 80's being much smoother than the 70's. Spike, dude, lighten up "kiddies". Granted tracks have progressed into finely groomed works of art, and I for one would love to see a couple of good ol flat turns and clips outlawed, but change will happen like it or not. I still enjoy being on the track just as much now as I did then, maybe more because I'm still doing it at 44. Speaking of Moto mags I didn't see any on your Champ, there ya go evolution BMX style. Racers quit using Moto mags because they were heavy, they were guaranteed to crack any frame, and freewheels took over. I remember fully decked out FMF's or Race Inc's with Phil, Campy or similar high end parts going for 500 to 600 bucks. At 70's prices that would even things out for what racers pay today. Have you seen the Olympic track? Smooth as glass or not, that thing certainly has the capability to crack a frame.

No...actually YOU should lighten up, I'm only messin' around, YOU took it personally, nobody else did. For the record, the only thing on my Champ as pictured above that is aluminum is the rims and front hub, everything else is steel, never had Campy, Phil or any of those high end parts, couldn't afford them and I NEVER used a freewheel or hand brakes. Also, I ended up ruining the rear Motomag I had.
