It has been a while but I will throw my hat in the ring for this one. I recently bought out a ton of Huffy parts and included in the deal was later rail frame with enormous dropouts welded on. As I dug farther into the pile I also found a handful of early Huffy disc brakes and wheels. Included among them was this 20" wheel with an enormous pie plate.

I thought maybe I could slap it on the big dropout frame but the caliper part was not meant to fit the rail frame. After sorting a ton of parts I eventually figured out that one of the calipers had been modified, I tried it and it for the Rail like it was made for it.

That leaves me here starting my build with this...

The plan is to load it up with Huffy and/or period correct parts. Still lots of parts to be located and bugs to be worked out.

I have had this project on the back burner while I keeping my eyes peeled for a donor or two but pickings have been slim. I have been able to pile up a few key parts though....

The console is a little rough. I am not going to do much more than clean it as I really don't have the experience or time with redoing them.

I plan to use this Sweet & Sassy little guard, I think. It is pretty banged up and the bracket had broken at some time and was riveted into place. I am taking it over to a buddy's tonight to bang on it and tack the bracket back on.

If the guard looks OK, then I will be heading to powder coat next week.

Last night I threw a slick on the rear and mocked it up again so I could drill holes for sissy mounts. Unfortunately I ran into a minor SNAFU with brake but I plan to take it to a mechanic buddy for advice and hopefully will still get it to powder today.

In the meantime I will see if this tall bronco will clean up. I was told it was original equipment on a Grant's badged Rail but I have never seen another tall one.
