Guessing it's old school department store junk, I think it's cool

Picked this up last weekend at a swap meet hidden amongst a bunch of car parts, it's decaled as a White's Performer, it's got a set of Lester mags on it, they even have the reflector tabs still intacted. The serial number is c83126671316

Nice bike and it looks like a Huffy made bike for some store, I am not sure about the 80's bikes but I know the ones made in the 90's that have a Wald stem like yours the year of it is above the stems insert line which will be the last two.


For example: 94 is for 1994.

Yeah, White's was a hardware or auto parts store if I remember correct.


I leave my bikes in the rain.

The Lester's definetly aren't light, I thought I had a bike they'd work perfect on, but I decided against the build, sold the mags off for more than I paid for the bike. So, now I have a cheap wheel less bike in my way.....
