That was my first bike!  I learned to ride one of these.  I still remember the day the training wheels came off.  I learned how to bunny hop and jump on my Thunder Road too!

Re: 1977 Huffy Thunder Road 56

Man I wanted one of those so bad. But I ended up with a cheaper Huffy. I mean was there really a  cheaper one. Ya like $10 cheaper. The kid next door ended up with it. Then he got a pro lightning. The one with the good parts on it. I saved it out of the trash. Used all the parts on my scrambler


If you buy from me, please leave feedback. Ill do the same for you. Then our transaction will be complete. Thank you,greg

I have a 76 Thunder Star.  It was sort of an 'Evil Knievel' version of the Thunder Road in white with chrome bars.  It's currently stored away at a friends garage, but will get a restoration soon.  I'll try to find some old pictures.

Check out this thread on this site: 1973? JC Penny BMX

It features a JC Penney branded Huffy in white.  It's basically the same as my Thunder Star with a different seat and plastic gas tank.

Here is a picture of a Thunder Road '54' I found(not mine) and an old Huffy Ad.

The one I referenced that my buddy had, I ended up buying but ended up selling it a year or so later after only riding it once or twice while I owned it.

Oh yeah. I certainly remember seeing these back in the day. There were a few running around town. Cool bike that really brings back some great memories from childhood.

Re: 1977 Huffy Thunder Road 56

This was my first bike too. cool

The fenders were orange and I think the number was 42. I still haven't seen one just like it but the orange bike in the ad is the closest except for the number plate and the gas tank.


Don't mind me. I'm just here to look at pictures.
