1975 Huffy Mono-Shock

1975 Huffy Mono-Shock

Note: These were not made in 73.  Is that the entire serial number?

Huffy Monoshock 6073# serial

1975-ish Huffy Monoshock.  If anyone knows different or can confirm, please do.
When we got it, it was caked with greasy mud. Someone had kept it good and oiled up. The grease helped preserve it, one heck of a cleaning though.
It is all original, the only things that aren't OG on it are the handlebars and the tires. The tires that were on it were worn down to the inside, someone got a lot of use out of it, and kept it good an oiled all the time. The bars on it weren't original, so we stuck this pair on.

Re: 1975 Huffy Mono-Shock

This bike looks in pretty good shape and pretty much original. Just missing the brkt for the front reflector and missing the rear regflector and grips. If the handle bar has a bar across the center (can't see it in the photo) it may be the original type handlebar. The seat looks original also, most people replaced it with a sadle type.
The MonoShock was Designed and developed in 1974-1975, released in 1975.
I have one of the first ones off the line (Black Metalflake) since I was one of the two guys who developed it.
It was produced at the Azusa Plant before it shut down. We also built a bmx test track for testing it. I hired 14 boys to come in after school and race the bikes and give us their input. The only problem they incountered was bending the crank, so we had to harden them.
The Azusa wharehouse in now the Costco Store, the Engineering Office was across the street.

Interesting.  Do you remember the names of any of the test riders?

Any more info to share....?   We're always interested in the minutiae of the early bikes.

Very cool looking bike. Awesome  to get some input about it from one of the developers.
