    ...

    OMG. That's the *EXACT* bike I started on. I've wanted one of those ever since I was dumb enough to get rid of mine. Like... it nearly brings a tear to my eye.

    Man, if you ever want to sell or trade that... PLEASE look me up first.

    Thanks, that link is great.

    When I raced back in the day I raced for Competition Plus, a bike store in Whittier CA. Comp Plus was owned by George "Mac" McDougall, father of Kelly McDougall who raced for Factory Torker. Kelly's mentioned on that page.

    ha! I had that exact torker frame, I sold it on ebat few years back, think it fetched close to 500.

    my bike was full of rare stuff.

    LRP pedal cages
    first run flitecranks,
    torker stem
    mongoose stainless bars.
    z rims

    when the day was done and all of it was parted up and sold off on ebay I was 1500 bucks richer.

    then I went and bought the bike of my dreams and still have a thousand left over
    -early 80's Puch mistral Ultima with full campy bits, weight is just over 9 kilos.

    come to think of it, i used to live in baltimore, and I remember mr hutch was talking with me on buying one of their frames, I remember the rear brake mount with the H U T C H , the T was slotted for the brake, his chrome was pretty crummy in the beginning....boy what that bike would be worth today!
    they were just starting into the frame business then, Still heavy into mail order.

    I find it rather funny that a Hutch would be so sought after. I recall seeing quite a few of those snap off at the headset. The only other bike I can recall seeing break was a Diamondback, and they were about half the price of the Hutch.
