That is a treasure trove....I love looking through sheds like that, as you are bound to find cool stuff!!
May 21 2007, 06:11 AM
Stu, looking at your GT, makes me think that the blue rims would be much better than the gold, as I have gold brakes on the PR240.
Where did you get the gold spoke nipples from?

AJAY, i'm from your planet mate, i'm "outta space" hehehe ;-)
May 21 2007, 06:32 AM
Hahahaha, thanx Ajay, nothing more fun than a sheeptrail running thru a shed full of, um, stuff ;-)
Yep, everyday is Xmas in there, i find stuff i forgot i had...surprise !!! ;-)
By the way, that pic was taken tonight, after i spent the past 2-3 weeks having a cleanout, that's why you can actually see some ground. ;-)
May 21 2007, 06:32 AM
Mike, my LBS got them for me, he told me he can get any colour nipple I want (of course I had already paid a bag load to bring some in from O/S)....tell ya what, just sent your rims and hubs to me, I will get it sorted for you..I don't have a 24 (yet) so you are safe

Hey, are all coloured nipples (on bikes) alloy?
May 21 2007, 06:37 AM
Yup alloy...only bikes (I already asked)
May 21 2007, 07:06 AM
Holy crap Marty, I give your shed roof about 5 mins befor it gives way
May 21 2007, 07:17 AM
Oops! I just had one of those long blinks you have at the computer at this time of night....
Yes Marty, your shed would appear to be a treasure trove and probably full of pleasant surprises when you go exploring.... It's a beautiful thing, seeing the fruits of a collecting obsession in it's full glory.
May 21 2007, 07:36 AM
Fruits ready for picking ;-)
I'm about tho gut the roof out, so i can go UP into the roofspace for valuable roomy area that i need....
May 21 2007, 07:47 AM
Marty, my fav line in "JAWS" is when Brody sees the shark for the first time and he calmly states "we need a bigger boat!!!!!!"
You NEED a bigger shed!!!.....LOL
May 21 2007, 07:50 AM
It's almost a sinking ship ;-)
May 21 2007, 08:05 AM
Hey Waza, hope you got my email..the Profile stickers went out express today...
May 21 2007, 08:41 AM
What is it with you Melbourne guys and sheds? Very impressive.
May 21 2007, 08:54 AM
While we're on the topic of colored tires. NOS fat/skinny CompIIs that will be going on a goose . . . not venturing beyond this and the blue Snakebellies.
Most of the recent haul are things to finish off builds. Finally got some mint 7Bs for the original blue 1980 JMC Standard Long . . . [ May 21, 2007, 11:09 AM: Message edited by: www.martin-bike.com ]

Did I mention I love number plates? My latest plate . . .
Not to be confused with . . .
May 21 2007, 01:35 PM
Martin, the end caps on your Grab On MX3's are the wrong way round. The "lip" should be to the top (so the MX3 on the cap reads the right way up )
Stu, I might take you up on that offer
May 21 2007, 03:41 PM
I was lucky enough to get a nice set of 24" silver 7Xs laced to Campy hubs from Mr. J Chopper for a very reasonable price lately.

May 22 2007, 04:58 AM
Does anyone here know this seller? Clicky Clicky
The genuine one in the background was built/owned by Larry Sprandel...
May 22 2007, 05:22 AM
Happy Birthday Jarvi!!!
May 22 2007, 06:23 AM
Out of the dirty 30's and into the naughty 40's....
Happy birthday mate!
May 22 2007, 07:05 AM
Mike, I live on the gold coast, and I have no idea who it is...it is a replica...interesting....
There is another seller on the coast too... Another Gold Coaster
I obviously I haven't been sniffing around my own back yard enough!!
May 22 2007, 07:23 AM
Happy Birthday Jarvi!!!!
May 22 2007, 07:30 AM
Best wishes on your Birthday, Jarvi.
May 22 2007, 03:55 PM
Yes, a replica... Interesting. I'm sure that will stir up a hornets nest.
The black 26 is REAL nice
And I think I might take you up on the rim offer too
May 22 2007, 05:37 PM
Yes, I'm sure it will! The black one is sweet!
Drop me an email anytime, as I would be happy to organise the rim anodising.
May 22 2007, 06:23 PM
I appreciate that Stu. So, you can get the long gold spoke nipples through your local shop?
May 22 2007, 06:36 PM
I'm in at the shop that is doing my wheels in the next few days, I will check the length, they would be the same length as the ones on my rims (p126) I think they are mediums and are 12mm, not the ultra long 16mm that vert-ego (in black only) sells. They look pretty sweet though..
May 22 2007, 07:50 PM
Wholey sh*tballs, check out what this clown wants to ship a frame to Australia...I have had a frame and forks sent usps global express $81.00USD. This sort of price jack for postage drives me up the wall!! Hutch Flying Business Class? [ May 22, 2007, 09:51 PM: Message edited by: 84profile ]
May 22 2007, 10:26 PM
Strewth! thats an awful lot for that!
Thats the one thing i do hate, people hitting for near twice the shipping.
Not so bad if they state theres a packaging and handling fee or something but when they just go bang and hit ya it suks.
May 22 2007, 10:49 PM
You need to realise that the seller absolutely HATES Aussies, and that the ridiculous shipping is there simply as an added shytestir towards us.....
He knows no-one here will buy it at that rate.....
May 22 2007, 10:57 PM
Good point there m8, i sorta noticed a trend like that...hmmm
May 23 2007, 12:04 AM
That's easy - everyone should just report him to eBay for unethical behaviour regarding shipping and handling prices. I understand that eBay takes a dim view of people like him....
May 23 2007, 12:30 AM
It's all good, cause I got my fill of Hutch's already...plus I don't wanna give money to a tool like that anyways!
May 23 2007, 12:45 AM
To be honest i think i only ever saw one hutch in person and that was at Manly beach at a freestyle comp my mate was in many years ago, had a little dark haired guy on it....that guy did some awesome stuff on it, cherrypickers the works, very nice trickstar it was.
Other than that one time, Hutches never came near me and i heard they broke alot so never got one and as such i don't see them in a very high regard other than maybe the trickstars they where a very nice bit of gear....altho the monetary value of the things is thru the roof LOL
May 23 2007, 03:21 AM
I'm a big fan of Hutch, having raced on BITD, can't remember any breakage problems, then again me and most of the other kids would have lucky to crack 60kg!! Super nice welds. nice touches like the stamped brake bridge and some of the best looking forks from the 80's make it a winner to me! Oh for an XL24!!!
Check this out guys.....http://cgi.ebay.com/RARE-BMX-MONGOOSE-MOOS...1QQcmdZViewItem
Only 500 (or so?) made???
May 23 2007, 03:24 AM
Yep, that's right, only 500 were made.......per day ;-)
May 23 2007, 08:53 AM
I have no idea how many Mooses they made, but nowhere near as many as the Motomag frames, which were coming out at 10,000 a month or so at their peak!
I'm interested in the Mooses though - from what I can tell they were only ever available in '80 or 81 - and were never a volume seller. Prodiuction stopped pretty suddenly, so the sales couldn't have been high. I have one on the way from Moosegoose Nick at the moment.
Hey Brad - you have to get yourself an XL24! Light, responsive, sharp, though you are never unaware they are a cruiser. 4 more inches makes a big difference (as the actress said to the Bishop!)
May 23 2007, 04:05 PM
I have a couple of Hutch bikes - a XL24 and Pro Racer - both riders.
The dropouts on both sets forks have been cracked and rewelded and the seatpost on the Pro Racer is cracked.
So, yeah I guess they are junk - lol.
So much for the Hutch 'lifetime guarantee against breakage'.
May 23 2007, 04:37 PM
I would imagine that a Moosegoose frame is about as much use as tits on a bull without the forks...
May 23 2007, 05:03 PM
yep, a very cool bike the mooses; but i'd hate to try and find some forks for it, that would be a big challenge.
