1980 Huffy Pro Thunder Pro 2

My first childhood BMX bike.

This was a $25 craigslist find. When I received this bike it was a rusted out piece of junk.

 

New Prokchop KMC chain

New Porkchop bottom bracket

Repro Silver Rat Trap pedals

New 175mm one piece crank. (Upgraded from the original 165mm crank).

NOS Yellow Cobra Grips (this was a custom change I made back in the day)

NOS Kashimax Aero Seat

New Comp III (20” – 1.75”) Blue Tires

OG Yellow Mag Rims (with a special thanks to giaro29)

 

In 1980 my father bought me this bike brand new from Gold Circle (Now known as Target). I know this was never a popular bike in its day, but having it back after 32 years is very cool. I truly enjoyed this bike and rode the hell out it, but in the end it was donated to the goodwill shortly after I bought my first car at 16. I never thought I would see one of these again, and then out of nowhere I stumble across one.
