: I bought the very first trick star frame and
: fork that my local bike shop ever got in
: columbus ohio. It's white, no fork pegs,
: stickers were hutch only. I believe mine is
: very rare, as they made modifications
: afterwards. I compared to others when
: riding, the rear frame pegs were moved back
: further, mine are 7 inches from the back of
: the bottom bracket. Mine are extremely close
: to my crank and pedals.
: My platform tubes extend 1 1/2 inches past
: the vertical post which interferes with my
: brake adjustment. THE ONE THING THAT STICKS
: OUT IS THE TWO LITTLE POST SUPPORTING THE
: BACK OF THE PLATFORM ON MINE IS THEY ARE
: COMPLETELY VERTICAL. I can not find another
: 84 trickstar like this yet. All the others
: the support tubes are angled back.
: The shop told me they changed the head set
: angle, and possibly the seat post tube angle
: after the very first version. This I do not
: know for sure.My serial # is 04 1844
: I want to find out how many of these were
I bought my Trick Star from Hutch in early '85 and it is supposed to be an '84 model. The S/N is 0743630. I have been told and read in several places that it is very tough to tell what the S/N's really mean. I can tell you that mine has the rear platform standers on the chainstays at 7" from the bottom bracket also. There ar no pegs on the forks, the top tube frame stand "ends" extend only about 1/2" from the supports which are welded at an angle to the seat stays. It sounds like you have one the "work in progress" models of the Trick Star. Can you put up a link to some pics? I am interested in seeing this beast..
