Stu was the man. If I ever see one locally I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.

LOL! I almost bought that bike too. Stu was a trader for going to huffy. I hated it. But Stu is the man.

Re: 1985 Huffy Stu Thomsen

That is awesome.

I bought one like that in 5 grade.

That is the next bike I will be doing. 

Great to see someone else has one and that they may be available.

Re: 1985 Huffy Stu Thomsen

well done joe !!!!!

hate them if you must, but these are great riding and performing bikes.
these were roomy for the day. the geometry is almost dead on to a redline series III.
this is ours -

i think the painted ones with coaster brake were dept. store versions and the
chrome version with freewheel were bike shop flavors.

i got some old pics of stu racing his huffy and that bike in no way shape or
form was related to these 'stu' model huffys. i think that is what irked so many
kids back then.

Exactly, he had to think of his own future, and I'm sure he is still buying groceries with some of Huffy's money!:D

As Cheesy as Huffy was/is, they are still a part of BMX's past and the past of so many of us who had them, willingly or not!;)

I would have bought this too, as it is a nice piece of BMX History

Re: 1985 Huffy Stu Thomsen

Stu made a business decision he was married, had a family, a mortgage-a company that could afford to give him a signature series bike/healthy royalty and carte blanc for sponsors-who were pretty major(Oakley-Sun Tour ? ).  His decidion did not hurt Stu and it helped Huffy elevate and bring sport of BMX to more people.  Besides not all the kids BITD nor now could afford high end bikes.:cool:;)  I think many of us out there respect the fact that we got piece of the dream when he made his decision to leave Redline and craft his own ride at Huffy. But that is my opinion. Ride on boys. Plus he is a pretty classy guy.
