Spare time fun!
Back in the day, I used to be into BMX and would do a little racing here and there. I had a blast and spent most of my Summers riding 20 inch BMX bikes.
Recently I have gotten into collecting and restoring them from the late 70's to the mid 80's...for fun and for my 12 year old son.
Here is mine that I just finished...its a 24 inch...this one is newer, but Skyway only made 600 frames,forks and bars. All Chromemoly with graphite wheels.
This is my boys new favorite! 1984 Hutch pro Racer.
Heres a few others:
1981 Predator Cromo
1978 Ross apollo
1984 Diamondback Pacer

i had an apollo 5 speed. my favorite bike of all time. looks just like that one but it was black, had a big stick shift and a reflector on the back of the seat. i loved that biken and was just thinking of it yesterday. i was the king of the block on that bad boy. yes sit, the mac daddy. i used baseball cards or baloons clipped to the forks and rubbing the spokes for that cool motorcycle sound!IV IV IX

Those are very nice. How is it possible for all of the white parts on the Hutch to look so clean? Did you replace those parts, or was the bike in that good of condition when you found it?
Were all of those bikes Made in the USA?
