1982 Huffy Pro Lightning

Probably the 1st RESTORED, show worthy Huffy on The BMX Museum!

Here's a restoration that this place has yet to see!  Here's my  Huffy.   I got one just like it for Christmas back in 1982.  It was the closest thing to a decent bike that I had until I was able to save my $ and buy my own Freshman year in high school.  It took me 2 years to find another to restore and I finally found a rough starting point.

I tried to use original parts, but as many know, Huffy used a lot of no name junk that was impossible to track down.
