AndyDiamond
Mine are still going - lol
AndyDiamond
can you see the cracks?

rsrichie
Im not a huge Hutch fan but i like that one Andy Very nice mate.
RL20II_too
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!:
Front:


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):
Mr.BMX
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 ;-)
Bradster
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.
Cheers
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!
Kurt.
Had a crack in my brake bridge - but not anymore.

Hutches can be fragile. More like a F1 car, than a tractor!

Kurt.
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.
www.martin-bike.com

Mr.BMX
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....
www.martin-bike.com
Put'em on my other Redline!
Mr.BMX
Doubt it ;-)
www.martin-bike.com
I didn't want them anyway
www.martin-bike.com
You can't go wrong putting them on a Redline if you're building one.
mcam
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.
Mr.BMX
- Put'em on my other Redline!
- I didn't want them anyway [Smile]

Just say NO to drugs .....
ACGTO
Nice Redline Martin! I'm still trying to track down that same sticker set to do my build.
www.martin-bike.com
Thanks!

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.
rsrichie
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.

HEHE i got a Redline here that'd like em too LOL
84profile
Martin, that is sensational as usual. So clean, and as Mike said the colour combo is perfect!
Kurt.
Very impressive Martin. Love to see some colour on a Proline2. Sweet.
velocidad
nice bikes Martin and Kurt. wow that cruiser has come a long way from that beater frame on ebay - great job.
AndyDiamond
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?

like these....



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:
COASTY
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.
Enjoy
AndyDiamond
oh yeah - I need to change the 20" frame decals I have on the forks out for proper fork decals - lol
mcam
Thanks Martin. I look forward to seeing it!
www.martin-bike.com
Thanks guys.

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.
www.martin-bike.com
Some sun shots - I know, one minor decal placement needs fixing. Gorgeous Sydney weather . . .









OZZYBMX
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 ??
AndyDiamond
Very nice Martin.
I'm surprised you don't have a Redline logo Elina seat in your stash though.

[ May 25, 2007, 12:10 AM: Message edited by: AndyDiamond ]
Kurt.
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.
OZZYBMX
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
Kurt.
Hey thanks for the compliment Mark.

You mean this old thing?

BEFORE


AFTER
COASTY
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.
www.martin-bike.com
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.
www.martin-bike.com
LOST & FOUND

Found this trip after having gone missing for over 3 years: original Profile Champ Pro decals.

Still missing:
- gold Dia Compe hinged seat post clamp
- Hutch Mag-Ti hub axles!!!

Any of you guys had things "dissappear"???
Kurt.
Thanks Glenn - You saw it in the flesh at Trevor's place too didn't you?
COASTY
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?
mcam
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.....
Bradster
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......!!
Kurt.
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.
QuicksilverBMX
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
mcam
Send them to Rod Miles... It would be worth it..
Bradster
Now your thinking Reece! I 'had' 2 buy a 2nd Moose as I had a spare decal set sitting around!!!!
COASTY
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.
OZZYBMX
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
mcam
Of course, I was bs'ing about the pedals and bars
