1988 Huffy Freestyle Expert

Cool Old Huffy Flatland bike

I bought this from a guy on Craigslist.
The price was right and I like old Huffys. I cannot believe it still has the chain guard!
That was the first thing I used to remove from my department store BMXers when I was a kid.
I used to hate that clanging sound of the chain hitting the one on my Pro Thunder when I was a kid...now I kinda miss it!
This bike rides good, needs a complete clean/regrease to be real sweet. I plan on keeping it just like it is sitting in the "freestyle section" of my attic.
Hope you all enjoy it, I love it!!

Re: 1988 Huffy Freestyle Expert

I just received the exact bike from an old friend of mine that died almost 21 years ago. His mom saw that we restore old bikes and contacted  me through facebook and asked me to restore it. She brought it to me and told me that I could keep it! He had changed it a little back then but I am woundering if I can find new stickers to replace the old ones. It was well kept in a barn covered but from him riding it took some battle. The bars he changed to chrome ones and the sprocket is different but I would like to keep it just as he had it before he started driving instead. He passed on at 17 so I would like to honor it in his memory. If you know a site where I can order old Huffy freestyle stickers please let me know!

thanks,
dee

Dee-
Sorry, I unfortunately do not.
I did a little searchin' in the forums to no avail.
Maybe post the question in the forums or "wanted to buy" section.
GOOD LUCK!!!!

Hey!  Thanks for FAV.  My '79 Puch Challenger MX!   This Bike is SICK, love the "Distressed/Splashed" Paint, Totally 80'S.   Sorry man, but for some reason I CAN'T HANG with TUFF/PLASTIC RIMS/MAGS.  They just don't work for me.   The 24 Inchers are sic. to.  Like The DYNO a lot also.  Cheers Friend-Merldog

Thanks, Bud! I really like this bike, too. I love anything w/ mags...isn't that funny! lollollol
I just love that 80' freestyle look from back then, and mags and a lay-back are icons of that era!!
