1976 Huffy Thunder Star

huffy thunder star
spirit of 1976
a.k.a evel knievel

This is the first bike I ever purchased off of e-bay.Thanks to member Goody39.
It was a pleasant experience.
Other than a fresh coat of paint on the sissy bar and new grips and pedals the bike appears to be in very nice original condition.
I wanted this bike because it was like the one I had as a kid.It is also the only other one I have seen with a plastic tank.If anyone knows why some are plastic and others are pad`s please let me know.The working a .m. radio came with the bike.I added the speed odmeter and the battery powered sound maker.I hope to find a raw power hand grip,and a white pair of correct grips.

That's a great bike! 

I have one of these from my childhood but it needs paint.  I have all the parts but just haven't gotten around to building it yet.  Mine has the padded gas tank.

Everybody comes to a point in there life when they want to quit, but it's what you do at that moment that determines who you are. See i don't want to hear from people that tell me success is easy, i want to hear from the people who fought it out, who went all twelve rounds with life and got to the other side.
