Re: SHOW YOUR HUFFY LOVE

I just pealed the inventory tag off a 1980s Huffy. Because it was yellowed. And I didn't want potential buyers to know it was that old.

Because I'm selling it as a commuter bike :p

Re: SHOW YOUR HUFFY LOVE

Finished putting together my 1980 Pro Thunder 3.  Fun old bike.  My kids think its cool to ride around too.  Its come a long way since i saved it from the scrap heap this past winter.  I stripped it down.  Gave it a bath in Naval Jelly to neutralize rust.  Then i cleaned all the parts up, and regreased everything upon assembly.  I found a few parts locally cheap to spruce it up a little.  Including red anodized Sumo rear rim laced to red anodized SR freewheel hub and Suntour freewheel.  Then i put on some old red lined tires that were sitting in my shed.  Found a red and chrome sprocket, red anodized rear brake, and black Odyssey lever in a local bike shop basement.  Then i added a white Odyssey cable and some red A'ME grips.  My friend tossed me a cheapo number plate to throw on and well here we are.  Its no Profile Champ, but its still a pretty cool vintage bmx.  They dont make them like this anymore. cool

Re: SHOW YOUR HUFFY LOVE

Looks great! Nice save. I LOVE the old Pro Thunders. Not a top of the line bike but very fun to cruise on and they looked pretty cool too.
