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 not everyone had the privilege of owning a Redline if you know what I mean. 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 this one. This build is my 35 year vision of how much better a Huffy could be if given the money and resources, it has been restored better than it ever was new and the end result is like no other....
