Mike Miranda was the second Hutch factory rider who got his own Hutch signature frame & fork set,called the Hollywood.Later there were other Hollywood parts made like pedals and handlebar.
Mike rode a pink Hollywood bike. Hollywoods frames came in pink, baby blue and lavender. Mike  Hollywood  Miranda raced for a long time in a pink uniform! This made pink a common color in the mid-'80s.
Mike rode almost 3 years for Hutch as a full factory rider (started after the NBL Grands in 1984) and later a short time as a Hutch co-sponsored rider. If I'm correct,Mike rode still his signature Hutch set as a co-sponsor deal and received a percentage of every sold Hutch Hollywood set. Mike was a real entertainer or sometimes a clown and the favourite of the public.Therefore he won the Nora Cup (from BMX Action magazine) in 1986.

(photo left). One of the last things I know about Mike's BMX career was that he broke his back in a freak accident at the ABA's Orlando,Florida,race (that was probably the end of his BMX career). In 1992 Mike was inducted in the ABA Hall of fame. Today,I've read that Mike is a golf pro in Southern California and goes by his real father's name; Mike Feltey.
