Mine are still going - lol
May 24 2007, 12:45 AM
can you see the cracks?
May 24 2007, 01:02 AM
Im not a huge Hutch fan but i like that one Andy Very nice mate.
May 24 2007, 03:07 AM
Invada Micro plate used by me back in the day found by me today(WOOT!), The Missing Link Trick Team was me and 2 other guys Dodney and Billy, we had a ball...we sukked....but we did it anyway!:
Back (hope the language does'nt offend but it sorta tells you what my attitude was like back then...i'm alot nicer now LOL):
May 24 2007, 03:21 AM
You're absolutely right, they dont crack, they 'pop apart'
My FAVOURITE HUTCH pic of all time.....
I posted this in the OLD Aus-thread, but here it is for the new faces ;-)
May 24 2007, 03:41 AM
Hey Kurt-yeah mate I want a Hutch XL24 badly! I'll keep looking, one will pop up one day(??)I hope...
The Moose's are a sweet rider, obviously they feel rather short in length & tall in height to ride, but yeah a few rides uder your belt and you'll be hooked!! Will this be your first one ?
While I'm here-anyone have a pair of goose forks they care to part with?, I'm looking for a set to Moosiefy! Not concerned with the steerer tube as I think I have a correct length one sussed, so a fork with damaged headset threads is ok.
Andy-sweeeeeeeet Hutch, got a pic of your 24 handy??
Wow-that Hutch looks to have snapped the tubing clean off, not at the welds!
May 24 2007, 03:43 AM
Had a crack in my brake bridge - but not anymore.
Hutches can be fragile. More like a F1 car, than a tractor!
May 24 2007, 03:48 AM
I've got a set of chrome plated Motomag style pinched end forks Brad - or are you looking for the Team style forks to Moosify? Never ridden a Moose before mate - but looking forward to it. Going (mainly) the whole Goose suite - gold stem, S/S bars etc on this.
May 24 2007, 05:29 AM
I had to submit a not delivered request to eBay for my XL24 yesterday
Playing with this tonight. Still have a lot of loose ends to tie up and take better photos of course.
May 24 2007, 05:31 AM

Does anyone know which bike/company had "Suntour Superbe Pro" (large flange) Hubs on their bikes?
I have a NOS set, dunno what to put them on yet....
May 24 2007, 05:40 AM
Put'em on my other Redline!
May 24 2007, 05:44 AM
Doubt it ;-)
May 24 2007, 05:47 AM
I didn't want them anyway
May 24 2007, 05:48 AM
You can't go wrong putting them on a Redline if you're building one.
May 24 2007, 05:50 AM
Looks great Martin. The Red looks nice with the chrome. My brother raced a Pro Line after he broke his Black Shadow. I could never get used to the Pro Line, it had too laid back geometry for me.
But they are fantastic bikes for big (Stu size) riders.
May 24 2007, 05:51 AM
- Put'em on my other Redline!
- I didn't want them anyway [Smile]
Just say NO to drugs .....
May 24 2007, 05:53 AM
Nice Redline Martin! I'm still trying to track down that same sticker set to do my build.
May 24 2007, 05:56 AM
So am I. I've contacted the guy several times but he keeps saying he'll get around to making some more. I need a few sets myself. As soon as he comes through, I'll post on here and let you know.

Mike, your Uni turbo should arrive early next week.
May 24 2007, 06:35 AM
MrBMX as far as i can recall the supurbe pro was only ever standard on a road bike and usually a fairly high end one as the supurbe pro was suntour's top of the line. I could be wrong, just sharing what i can remember.
May 24 2007, 07:17 AM
quote:HEHE i got a Redline here that'd like em too LOL
Put'em on my other Redline!
May 24 2007, 08:17 AM
Martin, that is sensational as usual. So clean, and as Mike said the colour combo is perfect!
May 24 2007, 04:39 PM
Very impressive Martin. Love to see some colour on a Proline2. Sweet.
May 24 2007, 04:43 PM
nice bikes Martin and Kurt. wow that cruiser has come a long way from that beater frame on ebay - great job.
May 24 2007, 05:18 PM
I hope that guy Stu with the cracked Hutch survived the breakage moment OK - looks pretty gnarly!
Martin - the Proline is looking awesome.
I love those SunTour pedals but you gotta run KKTs I think this on a Stu Proline
Or is this your Grubby bike?
Here is a pic of another Stu Replica - I think this is Tony's (Motomag) build:
Here's the Hutch Xl24 in it's first incarnation.
I had gold and silver parts laying around at the time so I built it with those.
You don't see many Hutch builds with gold stuff but it looked quite good.
My wheels were pretty tweaked though.
I've just picked up a set of silver 7Xs laced to Campy hubs which I'm going to put on as well as a black Kashimax MX and silver Tech III lever. All the gold stuff will be swapped out for silver.
PS: I have a set of SunTour Superbe LF hubs laced to Pro Class rims:
May 24 2007, 05:28 PM
man I love ProLines. What an awsome bike they are. A friend of mine had one bitd done up for freestyle as he was a big lad. Perfect sized frames for an old bloke.
Nice bikes everyone. They all look great.
Now today is a holiday here in Qland so I'm going for a ride and play bikes for while.
May 24 2007, 06:06 PM
oh yeah - I need to change the 20" frame decals I have on the forks out for proper fork decals - lol
May 24 2007, 06:34 PM
Thanks Martin. I look forward to seeing it!
May 24 2007, 06:39 PM
Andy, my Redline is not a replica - it was born out of a list I first prepared at the back of a classroom in high school about 25 years ago.
May 24 2007, 07:45 PM
May 24 2007, 09:01 PM
ok guys , i got the rims for my repco MX back from the powdercoaters , its going to take a few days to lace them with the old original fat spokes , so i decided to try out the suspension ... i threw a set of wheels on the bike and had a go ....the handlebars moved so i grabbed a 12 inch shifter and started to tighten the clamps ...BANG the clamp cracked across the top .
Glenn i know you had a problem with these , did you ever get any or did you get them made up ??
May 24 2007, 09:47 PM
Very nice Martin.
I'm surprised you don't have a Redline logo Elina seat in your stash though.

Don't you hate that Billy - I never use shifters on my bikes. The beauty of fixed spanners is that with their reducing length according to nut size, it's hard to overtighten nuts.
May 24 2007, 11:11 PM
yeah kurt , i was sitting on the bike and the shifter was the closest tool for the job without getting off the bike ...lazyness basically . now i have a 4 hour job with a lathe and a mill to make 2 new clamps
May 25 2007, 12:12 AM
Hey thanks for the compliment Mark.
You mean this old thing?
May 25 2007, 12:42 AM
Thats beautiful Kurt. I love that Hutch.
OZZY, I have the clamps, but they are two top halves. The bars I'm using are normal bars and repco used larger diameter bars so I have another problem now. I might just get something made up.
I should just buy another complete bike because the seat on mine needs some serious work too.
May 25 2007, 01:31 AM
I wish Andy. I have ever only seen one black Redline logo Elina seat on eBay. Jeff Haney won that auction - about 2.5 years ago.
May 25 2007, 01:36 AM
LOST & FOUND
Found this trip after having gone missing for over 3 years: original Profile Champ Pro decals.
- gold Dia Compe hinged seat post clamp
- Hutch Mag-Ti hub axles!!!
Any of you guys had things "dissappear"???
May 25 2007, 01:51 AM
Thanks Glenn - You saw it in the flesh at Trevor's place too didn't you?
May 25 2007, 02:03 AM
Yeah mate. He showed it to me and I thought it had potential. You proved that correct. Nice restore. Did you try to fix the forks or not?
May 25 2007, 02:51 AM
Yes, I have had things go missing...
Somewhere in my garage is a NOS set of Profile horseshoe pedals, and a mint set of early 80's SE cruiser bars.....
May 25 2007, 03:13 AM
Wow-some great bike pics being posted fellas-great to see, Martin-you sure build some clean rides! (*Borat*-Very Nice!*)
Kurt-I remember that Hutch on da bay-great resto, was that the one with the bent forks?? What was you repair soloution??
Quite like the 'tuffs' on that repco......!!
May 25 2007, 03:19 AM
Glenn, Brad - yeah - still have the forks here. Haven't touched them. I was looking to buy another set, but after seeing the price the last set of XL24 forks went for on the Bay, I think a repair is much more sensible!
What I'm looking for is a master welder with a BMX passion to have a go at them! At the moment I have a temporary set of Tange forks on her.
May 25 2007, 03:21 AM
Yeah Martin, somewhere in my shed is a set of Quicksilver decals, the first set I bought that I stored in a "safe" place, I still cant find em'
I'd better buy another Quicksilver frame incase the decals show up
May 25 2007, 03:21 AM
Send them to Rod Miles... It would be worth it..
May 25 2007, 03:28 AM
Now your thinking Reece! I 'had' 2 buy a 2nd Moose as I had a spare decal set sitting around!!!!
May 25 2007, 03:35 AM
I have a BMXA frame pad somewhere but i've no idea where it is. I never would have gotten rid of it. I have the stem pad still on my bike though. Also my yellow Joffa mask. GONE! but where??
Senility is a wonderful thing! I think.
May 25 2007, 03:45 AM
coasty sent you a PM .
yeah as far as old bmx's go they are dirt cheap for the complete bike . i have a hutch, quad, kuwa, goose, and another pk here in the pipeline yet i really wanted to build this first
May 25 2007, 04:16 AM
Of course, I was bs'ing about the pedals and bars
