Welcome to the board.
If you have a question about Hutch or old school BMX,
feel free to post them here!
I can no longer ride, so with a heavy heart, I'd like to sell my very rare and fabulous Hutch Trailstar BMX bike. I bought it about 1979. It is in good condition with light rust-speckle and has original parts and stickers except for seat, chain, and tires. Last one I saw online sold for around $1200, so I'm looking for a comparable offer. Is Ebay a good place to start? Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.

"The ad you show in your pictures is from 1985.
The trailstar must be from that time.
Date code in serial i don't know.
But maybe you can find a date code in one of the parts.
Shimano has a date code in there parts."
Thanks! I don't think it can be 1985, but I suppose it is possible. I got the ad poster from the internet last year and although it says all-new, I don't see a date on it? Around 1979 I also bought 2 new road bikes, which were stolen the first day we got them (we suspected the bike shop), and then bought 2 more with the insurance money-- so maybe I'm getting the dates confused. Too many bikes to keep track of. :-) I'll look at Shimano. But if anyone can tell the date from the serial number, I'd appreciate it.
