Don't know if this has been asked before or not???
Here we go. If you could go back in time and bring back one brand new Stock bike what would it be and the year? As for me it will have to be 1988 and a Haro team Master in that mint color.

Give me a New in the box Hutch Pro Racer with aerospeeds. I'd throw it on ebay and buy one of each of the 1987 Team Model bikes with the profit!

This has come up, but it's fun...

I'm with Pauly on that one, LOL! I mean, knowing what we know now, I guess that's a no brainer. Think that would be a Pro Star.

Although if it could be a bike that was BUILT as a complete (rather than a factory-offered) make mine a Trick Star, same stuff on it. Hutch never sold them complete like that.

Freestyle - GT Pro World Tour (whatever the first year was) - Fiola style all white with black Tuffs. I always like the "single-bend" downtubes better than the s-shaped.

Being more of a racing guy:
Racing - Hmmm, I can't decide - DB Leary Turbo or GT Nora Cup Pro...

Honestly though, I never had a factory spec bike BITD. My plans are now to build them as I did then -- put 'em together with what I have til I find a part I like better, then replace said part... at some point you end up replacing a frame. Then you look at your left-over stash of parts and a frame, build up another bike and start all over again!!

i've never seen a complete bike in a bike store that had all the right parts. seems like they always pick at least an item or 2 to skimp on.

any of the higher end GT's or General's were probably as close to perfect off the floor as I can think of.

i'd have to go clear back to a gear shift Stingray to find a showroom bike that was utter perfection in the parts selection.

Hmmm... the first freestyle bike that blew me away were those 1985-1986 green Haro Masters. So I'd have to say I'd take one of those. Second choice would be the red RL 20II that was featured in Freestylin. I remember that was a really high end bike at the time.
