Early Hutch

So in an attempt to reduce clutter I found my old BMX bike (and skateboards) from the early 80s and I am torn to restore or sell it. It is a pre s/n Hutch. I am guessing that I bought it back in 1980 or so. I did replace some items about 12 years ago to try to race it so not everything is era correct, the 1 1/8 wheels were swapped out to newer wider non era correct wheels to support my adult weight, the pedals were replaced and the the UNI snapped so it has some other metal post and seat. Otherwise it has era correct 401 cranks, DK stem, bullseye hubs, I think CW bars with newer non era correct grips, hutch seat clamp. No number plate. It has its wear as it was used a lot. I drilled the forks back when front brakes were coming into style with the freestyle era but they are the original non drilled fork just with a hole that I had drilled. I was wondering what a price range might be for such a bike. I am trying to decide to keep it and restore it to era correct just as it was when I used to ride it as a young boy or sell it as it has not been used for years nor do I see it being used for function in the future. Also are there any vintage BMX bike shops or members in the Central Florida area?

Thank you for your input

Eric

The Hutch BMX race bikes from the early 80's where really nice. I would guess it's worth at least a couple hundred some pics and size info would help greatly on pricing.
