MISC:   Get Off Romero's Back! posted by: The Fabricator!! on 2/7/2001 at 2:35:37 AM
Look, anyone who cares, Romero woke up & smelled the rust O.K. The dude did a bad thing & I'm sure he knows that, it's not the end of the world! He went out & got another bike & put this mess behind him, all critics of his judgement NEED to do the same. Score one for him if you ask me, I know some guys with vintage bikes that were never even assembled, those are the real deals. That bike had already been amtrak raped & abused like a Japanese schoolgirl. You guys know how a train is, IF YOU'RE NOT FIRST, YOU GET LEFTOVERS & NOBODY LIKES LEFTOVERS! Also, Romero, you probably shouldn't inform anyone again whenever a bike is on ebay because PEOPLE ON HERE SURE AS HELL DON'T APPRECIATE IT FOR SOME REASON!

The only old school I gots is an old GT thats in decent shape but I am in the market for a complete Hutch Judge. Mike Miranda was my favorite Bmx'er but I can't see myself on a Hot Pink Hutch Hollywood so the Judge is the next best thing. Can't spend too much money on it though cause my Honda Accord's been bitchin lately that I don't drive her as much as I use to since I've started riding again. Some of that Slick 50 stuff should calm her down.

AGE / VALUE:   HUTCH ALERT!! posted by: Romero on 2/6/2001 at 2:04:03 PM
There's a vintage Hutch bike on ebay. I don't know what it's called but it looks like a motorcycle. It was on the cover of a late 80's BMX Plus Mag as the worlds fastest Bmx bike. I can't recall ever seeing it in any bike shops so it's gotta be a rare model. All Hutch fans THIS MAY BE ONE TO LOOK AT!
Romero


    HUTCH ALERT!!-TRICKSTARS TOO!!!! posted by Rob on 2/6/2001 at 2:52:29 PM
hey Romero,look closer....that same guy is selling NOS MINT NEVER BUILT Trickstars!!!!!!...still in the factory boxes!!........wow!!! what a deal!!....the only parts not included are the wheels.....i Wish i had some loot!!!.......cheers,Redline Rob

   Take a cold shower guys! posted by Tom on 2/6/2001 at 3:52:31 PM
That Hutch stuff on e-Bay is all overseas made JUNK. The dude who is selling has a lot of money in the JUNK. Go take a cold shower or something! Relax!

Tom

   dont you EVER shut up!!!?? posted by Rob on 2/6/2001 at 4:59:58 PM
hmmmm,lets see...the last Nice hutch trickstar went for 660 plus on e-bay,and this guy is selling them complete-NEW/NOS for 500 apiece..in the FACTORY BOX...so,thats cheap AND a deal.....why dont you take a shower yourself there Tom,and make some decent posts,instead of trashing everybody.......and..dont go away mad,just go away.

   RE:dont you EVER shut up!!!?? posted by Stephen on 2/6/2001 at 6:34:43 PM
Hmmm...Rob, before you post, get your facts straight. Just so you don't look stupid, that last Hutch complete chrome bike as well as NOS white frame and fork set both dropped in the last couple days of their e-Bay auctions. People withdrew their bids because it was discovered that both Hutch items were madse overseas. U.S. made Hutch items are more rare. CHECK COMPLETED AUCTIONS, ACE! If you are such a big shot, than perhaps you should bid on that e-Bay Hutch HPV bike. You seem to be fairly knowkedgable about current e-Bay prices...LOL,

Stephen

actually,im a mere mortal,sorry,and i Was referring to the trickstars.....now,of course i didnt know about the overseas hutch made bikes....i wouldnt have said what i did...(Sorry Tom,my bad)..and never claimed to be an expert,there ACE...when i sold mine for 250 used,and i see the same bike? for 500 new in a box,i naturally thought it was a good buy....not great but good......SORRY!!..LOL...i didnt know,dont have a fit.....Thanx for explaining tho.......and buy the parking lot hutch??....then what,ride around in circles??

WANTED:   83 or earlier PK Ripper posted by: Jonathan on 2/4/2001 at 2:05:38 PM
I had my PK for 17 years and someone stole it from a storage facility. I don't know why but I am compelled to restore one to the way it was. I know most of you guys are not JUST it in for the money but also because you love the bikes. Any leads or help would be appreciated. I will buy a complete, or just frame and fork, it will be a project. Thanks!


   RE: stolen from storage posted by Rob on 2/5/2001 at 7:45:40 PM
i would just like to point out a Disturbing new trend in thefts nationwide.....thieves are now targeting the storage facilities....broad daylight theft.....they just cut off the locks and steal everything..they will hit several lockers at once...i now rent old barns and garages for storage,after personally losing about 3000 worth of goods and items from one storage area....be warned,storage facilities are not the best place to keep your items Safe..and read the fine print from the storage people...not responsible for basically anything is the fine print i`m referring to....yours,Rob

Two words: THEY SUCK!! Raliegh's are like huffys man, you don't know that. They're worse than huffys, bottom of the barrel, you can't even give it away. One jump is all they can take. If the cops used one in a stakeout to try and catch a bike thief, they would NEVER get him, know what i'm sayin. Throw that thing off a cliff & spend some of your hard earned dollars on a REAL bike!

Now that's what i'm talking about you down syndrome havin double postin morocco mole. Thruster must be a new bike company, that name doesn't sound familiar. The bike I ride is a 2000 model K2 DMC Pro complete with Odyssey Race Fork, Haro Heffer 3 wheelset, Hoffman Skidmark Tires, GT Pro Freestyle bars, Profile 3pc crank with DK Iron Cross 44T chainwheel, Shimano 16T rear spocket, DK Iron Cross pedals, DK Fixed seatpost, KMC chain, Haro Big Block stem, Chris King Headset, Haro grips, Primo Hemmerhoid seat, & rear Dia Compe 990 brake with Tektro two finger lever. My other bike that I have is an 88 GT Pro Freestyle Tour. It's blue & still in great shape. So there ya go. I did actually have a Team Murray one time back in 84-85 time frame, can't remember the name but it was all white & came with a pair of ACS Z Rims. I think it may have been a limited edition or somethin.

   RE:RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:   RALIEGH BMX FRAME posted by The Fabricator!! on 2/6/2001 at 12:08:53 AM
ACS Z-Rims DID COME ON A TEAM MURRAY! You need proof? In 1984, the baseball card company Donruss made a set of BMX cards. One of the cards in the set has this particular Team Murray bike on it with the ACS Z-rims. These cards have been selling on ebay for awhile now. Not the Fagricator: the guy asked what I had & I told him, simple as that.

You know what MADMAN, you're starting to make yourself look very unintelligent. You can't spell & your Tandy computer has down syndrome. Honestly, although this Thruster is some sort of legendary bike, (no disrespect to the company) it is not a household name when you walk into a bike store. You walk in & say Thruster & some old drunk dude starts goin off about how in 1965, he mowed 100 lawns to buy his then the store owner tells you that the only way to get one is to go to this mortuary in Nebraska where they buried the children of the corn. Now in Singapore somewhere, having a Thruster might be like looking into the Arc of the Covenent or owning the very first Haro Master, BUT NOT HERE IN THE U.S. AND EVERY PRO BMX BIKE MADE IN THE 80'S COST IN THE AREA OF $300.00 MOROCCO. A statement such as that inducates that you probably didn't even buy the bike, you swiped it from some kid while he was in the 7 Eleven. Your a FRAUD BMXER MADMAN. KEEP ON POSTING BECAUSE YOU LOOK MORE LIKE A 2ND GRADER EVERY TIME YOU WRITE. MISTA CURIOUS GEORGE! NUFF SAID!!

Actually Raleigh was a British bike made for MANY years. They had some decent models back in the day. I'm actually looking for a Rampar since a buddy of mine had one.

They were not very expensive. They were one step above department store trash. They were the bike we saved up for when we had Huffy's and Columbia's. It was no SE or JMC but it was OK.

Send me a pic, if the frame is decent, I know I can find a home for it where it will be appreciated.
Thanks
