    Very cool! That's what I love about RatRodBikes.... the diversity. Old School BMX, vintage British style path racers, super rats, full customs, and everything else that is cool. I'll be following this one to see the progression. Cool project, Tyler!

    This is really a clean bike in person, takes me back..... :roll:

    BTW, after knowing what you have to pay for the vintage BMX stuff, if you EVER hear me saying "Maybe I'll build a little puddle jumper", please shoot me (before my wife does!) :mrgreen:

    Cool thing is, I can always come over and ride yours! Thanks pal! :mrgreen:

    Just in case you worried about getting your $$$ back some day.

    Actually not even close. I took everything apart. Switch out the 82 frame with a 84 frame, Powder coated the frame fork and bars white, ordered chrome decals and re chromes a few parts. Gunna look sick 8)

    Re: ★★★Hutch Pro Racer Project ★★★(Some Fresh Chrome!)

    Don’t make fun...I had my Hutch complete until I found a guy that does powder coating for a killer price. So I took everything off, and let him powder the frame forks and bars gloss white. In the process I found a company that chrome plates in my town. I never knew it was there. Took him the seat post to get re-chrome and had it back by the next day.

    If I’m going spend this much on a bike I might as well have it perfect. But don’t worry, I’m not Upside down…Yet :roll:

    I hate to say it, but that might be as clean as one of Steve's, maybe :roll:

    Gotta get the numbers of the coater and chromer from you.

    Re: ★★★Hutch Pro Racer Project ★★★(WHITE WHITE WHITE)

    The powder caoting was done at South East Custom Chopper Shop in Dallas, And the chrome was done at Dallas Plating. The owner over at the chopper shop told me to tell the guy at the desk at dallas plating to put the chrome work I needed on his(the chopper owner's) tab!!! So I came out paying $0.00 for my new chrome seat post 8)
