1983 Huffy Pro Thunder

This belonged to my closest friend of over 20yrs. After he passed away, I inherited it.

This bike belonged to my best friend Randee P. (Ramona, Ca) He told me he had the exact same bike growing up as a child in El Cajon, Ca. He would ride it everywhere, so when this came up 4-sale, he grabbed it. He knew it wasn’t anything special, but it reminded him of days long gone.  100% original, right down to the cheap combo lock wrapped around the seat post (who remembers that trick from the early ‘80s?). After I took delivery, I treated it to a good old fashion cleaning.  The Chrome came out awesome!  The Red Anodized parts were in excellent shape, very dark color with hardly any fading. Tires have seen better days, but they are original. I’m not too sure about the specs on most of the parts, but I’ll list what I do know in the details box to the Right>>>>>

  Unfortunately, Randee lost his battle to cancer on Jan 9, 2018. I miss you my friend.

RIP 4/20/69 - 1/9/18
