Not quit as vintage as the rest here, but this Huffy frame should work with the right parts. My inspiration is an old pickup with fat fenders and a sage green primer job. I will post a pick if I can find it again.
Need slightly longer forks so did the easy method of cutting two forks, slipping together and bolting. The build direction has changed for my bike and will no longer be inspired by the pickup (leave the pic because it is a cool truck.)
Took my first ride tonight, first impression--COLD!!! The turning is a little funny as the forks are modified-probably too much rake. Now it is time to take apart, sand and prep, then wait until March when it warms up.
I tore apart the bike, burned off the decals, and started sanding the frame/forks. I am looking for some custom decals for the chainguard. Looking to model the font from a krate. Does anybody have ideas? I emailed Pete at Hyper-formance but I think he thought it was blasphemy.
Bought a couple lights from ebay. Used the LED light trick from another post and works well. I took the original glass lense out and replaced with some clear plastic sheet. It flexes enough so I dont have to unscrew to turn off and on.
Got the taillights completed tonight. Had some old light that I converted to led. Picked up a preassembled flashing led from Radio Shack. Cut of the flashing led and put 2 red LED's on to the battery pack.
Here is the LED module price is right $3.69
Couldn't find a great headbadge so I decided to at least make the bike functional. Looks a little rough in the pic, but I just sanded and applied another coat of the epoxy putty. I hope it holds under pressure.
