Hutch True Temper Bottom Bracket Decal
Even though Hutch frames used true temper tubing as early as '83, i've only seen this decal used on 84-85's. Words by mr coasterbrake from VBMX.
Hutch Pro Star decal evolution
In 1983 Hutch build there first Pro Star (see bike tests). The first Pro Star had a standart Pro Racer decal set with on the down tube a rub on PRO STAR decal next to the usual HUTCH decal. Don't know if there were ever sold Pro Stars with such rub on decal? (I've heard that Toby Henderson had such rub on decal on his bike in 1982) Later in 1983 Hutch made the first real Pro Star down tube decal and in 1984 the design changed a bit to the decal most people will remember.

When the movie RAD came out (some Hutch factory riders played in that movie), Hutch added to there frames a extra decal on the top tube (under the round world champions product decal) with the text « as seen in the movie RAD ». Left pic is from a pink Trick Star. Right pic is from a orginal red Judge frame (thx to the owner Troy Little). All decals on both pics are orginal!
