Hutch XL24 project
« on: January 11, 2019, 11:15 PM »
As soon as I'd finished my Pro Racer build I was planning this build (probably mid build tbh),  nearly a year since the F&F came my way and now the parts have slowly come together to warrant the thread.

Progress pics to follow

Cheers

Decided to go chrome & Blue on this build.
A few bits that will end up on the finished bike

MCS made hutch forks - been told they're quite rare, they did come with the frame which has a double stamped bridge.
Some Campagnolo sheriff's - I know it's not in keeping but I just love them.
Hutch flyte pad set
Oakley B1B's

Will be visiting the chrome finishers soon to pick up some bits

I managed to find a NOS Tange MX3 headset but had the gold colour rim around it

So I manged to find the perfect solution - Company called "great planes" A model manufacture make coloured metallic tape - and 3mm wide - perfect!

PS if anyone needs some of that tape to do the same then I've got a roll of it, I am well pleased with the results :)

Still got the OG gold tape if anyone needs

Next resto will be a redline chainwheel - so that it has the OG brushed finish and not polished.

cheers

Right I've been a bit lapse on the updates but finally I can now build this bitch, visited the chromers today to pick up some bits -now there is light at the end of tunnel.

NOS raised edge HUTCH bar decal added

And the mint B1B's added too

Question for you all to ponder on, I have black & Blue tyres - Mid 80's Comp 3's (greedy but couldn't afford to miss out on rarity of them coming up - Sods law they were 1 week apart) 
Which do you think would go better on the final build baring in mind this is a chrome and blue build.

Cheers All

Yeah I know,  it just came up at the right time. I've got a Kashimax Aero to try which may suit it better
