1977 Huffy Thunder Road

Cool old skool history!

1977 Huffy Thunder Road.
All original except it is missing the number plates.
Old 80's "Team Cycle" number plate was put on(I had this number plate on my Cycle Pro Macho II when I was around 14 years old).
Rides great and is in pretty nice shape for it's age.
Would like to find the original number plates for it at some point.

I used to have the same bike, except mine had orange fenders. I think the numberplates were # 42 but can't really remember for sure. I tried to make it look more like a bmx bike by putting a messenger seat on it and losing the chain guard. Fun times bitd!


Don't mind me. I'm just here to look at pictures.

Re: 1977 Huffy Thunder Road

I think you are right about this bike needing the #42 plate on it. Hopefully one day I'll find one! Hey Jukeman I will let ya know if I ever decide to sell it, I live pretty close to you also (I'm in Lancaster PA)

I think this model had the 56 plate, I'm working on a Thunder Trail and need a 78 front plate, also might be getting a Sweet Thunder soon, these things are cool as hell, many of us had one of these before getting a real BMX. cool


Always looking for nice / rare SKYWAY bikes, parts & gear.

Re: 1977 Huffy Thunder Road

Man that was my 2nd bike,  got it for Xmas is 1976 and been looking for a photo of that thing for years.  I beat the absolute crap out of that huffy until 1982 when I moved up to a Diamond Back.   I even took that bike to the point of adding straight chrome forks and bars , red tires, plastic seat and a new sprocket.    Was the most ghetto looking BMX bike in the nieghborhood, but what can you do when your parents won't spring for a good one.   I finally killed it in the summer of 1982 when we had a huge jump made with plywood over an upturned picknick table going into the lake by the house.   Guess the bearning system in the neck was not a fan of the constant water in it over the summer.   Siezed up like a vice, was just rusted out as heck. 

That bike took an absolute pounding and kept on ticking as our nieghbor was a woodworker and made us take off and landing ramps.   They got so big by 1980 that after my buddy took a massive header on the last incarnation of them infront of the mom's that it was dismanteled immediately.  The photo of me going over the gap to  the landing ramp in the parents photo book is epic.   Oh to 9 years old again.
