I have a mid 80's GT Pro Performer F+F originally chrome but later sanded and painted, then sanded again. Needs to be rechromed or powder coated. no dents or bends. unsure of year, but it has a brake bridge on the chain stays and the seat stays.

AGE / VALUE:   NOS Hutch posted by: Gerren Babin on 11/6/2002 at 1:59:03 AM
Can anyone explain to me what exactly NOS hutch is? I'm just getting back into BMX and I had a mini hutch about 13 years ago. I'm trying to find another Hutch and I often come across NOS Hutch. Is that an original Hutch and is it's quality as good as the old. Any info would be helpful. Thanks,

Gerren Babin

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   NOS Hutch posted by mike on 11/6/2002 at 8:15:05 AM
for those of you that dont know:

NOS stands for New Old Stock. as in; brand new, never used, oldschool equipment. an nos bike is one thats never been ridden. and, some believe, never assembled.
i had an NOS '76 R&R screamer, that was never assembled. i've also had an NOS '87 haro master that was an assembled floor model.
NOS is ideally any oldschool equipment that is in brand new condition. as to what degree greatly depends on the buyer/seller/collector.
i hope this helps!

you are looking for what is called a hutch "mini holeshot". You just missed two of them that I can think of in the past couple of months but they sure are a cool little setup. Keep your eyes open and one will pop up soon

FOR SALE:   box bars posted by: mike on 11/2/2002 at 8:15:55 AM
would anyone be interested in some oldschool box-style bars? i have found a bunch of NOS bars in both yellow and red. these have no decals, but would be perfect for a scrambler or early motomag, etc. early to mid 70's era. flat-end crossbar would easily accomidate ashtabula type stems, and these are flared at the knurling so a shim would not be needed.
if i sold these for $8 each +shipping, would anyone out there be interested? i am asking first before i make a commitment to buy them. email me or post here! thanks!


   RE:FOR SALE:   box bars, additional info: posted by mike on 11/3/2002 at 7:51:54 AM
i just picked up two bars today and found out that they are original DORCY box bars. red and yellow are the only available colors. i can get LOTS of these. i can also discount quantity orders of 5 or more. if $8 is too much then make an offer on/of any amount. thanks.
