Hi there.

Ok the hutch you are speaking of sounds more like a Thruster TRI-POWER. Hutch bicycles were made for a while by SPEED Unlimited out of Wayne New Jersey back in the early 80's. If ya have any pics I will be ahappy to see if I coud identify it for you. I also have a pair of Hutch Bars with the double cross bar. Intersted? E-mail me.

Thanks and Good Luck

MISC:Build-up advice posted by: Walter on 12/9/2001 at 8:20:43 PM
Been a roadie since I got off my Cheater Slick in the mid-70s but my kid likes BMX style bikes. Figured I'd build one up for her. Scored a frame off eBay for a nice price and need advice about the rest. It's going to be 20" wheels with a frewheel. Frame's BB is ashtabula size but I plan to convert to 3 piece. What's the typical crank arm length? She'll be riding on the street, if she gets into racing I'll get her a better frame in all liklihood. What size chain/freewheels do you guys recommend? What's the good stuff with BMX calipers? It takes a 1" headset. Can I assume that's pretty similar to what a roadbike uses? The frame has been in storage for at least 10 years so this'll be sort of a "old school" project, though I won't tell her that. :-)

One thing I've noticed is that hunting around eBay is that alot of the vintage BMX still sells for reasonable $ something I couldn't say when I was putting together my "old school" roadie. She's probably a little young for a 20" bike right now so my timeframe is pretty long. I'll welcome any advice on what to keep an eye out for.
