I know. I remember the very day when I was 12-years-old, bringing this Huffy Pro Thunder to our home from the Child World Department Store on John Fitch Highway. smile

Re: 1979 Huffy Pro Thunder

I am restoring this same bike right now, does anyone know where I can get paint that looks very similar to this? I'm restoring it to be a child's bike so I don't want it to be too nice, any suggestions?
