1983 Hutch Pro Star survivor
One of two (that I'm aware of) original 1983 Hutch Pro Star Survivor. Not a lot that I can say about this bike, other than it's the coolest thing I've owned by quite a distance. All the components are stamped the same month and year, and while I've got chrome pads on it in this pic, it actually shipped with a black set. It matches the Pro Star test bike note for note, and to me represents what might have been in my childhood had my family had any money at all (I'm sure that's a universal story for a lot of us). I want to give a shoutout and special thanks to the guy who made it possible for me to own this, he's as solid a citizen as anyone in the hobby, and someone I regard as a real friend, even though I've only ever known him via email and phone.
