Show off and discuss all things Muscle Bikes.
My cousin gave me these two bikes and told me to fix them and sell them for $50 or $60 each.
The Huffy Dragster was a fun little bike, and after a good cleaning and greasing, it was ready to ride. The tires held air, and the chain was ok. After a few rides the little sucker just wore me out. Had I known it wasnt the bike but me in the early stages of a groin hernia I would have never let it go. I put it on craigs for best offer and sold it the next day for $75. I sent $50 to my cousin and used the $25 to fix up his next bike. I saw it about a week ago at a bike sale in the same shape as I sold it for $150.
This bikes banana seat looked like it got in a knife fight with a pit bull. It had bumpy white cracked tires that just fell apart when I stared to put them on the wheels. So I found some used tires for $10, and a black seat I got from a guy for $5. When I tried to put it together the front wheel would not fit. $5 for another wheel. When I was done I didnt like the look untill I swaped the white grips for black ones. I had a spare chain so she was good to go. It never sold, so I have a little green girls bke.
I took off the seat, and wheels and sold the rest for $20.00. I sold the wheels to the same guy for $10.00. Now I need to pay my cousin stleast that much. This little bike was a bane bike shed.

I like to find junk and try to make it pretty. If I fail, its still junk.
“Miss Fit” the final iteration: new wheelset, bottom bracket and (used) road crankset 52-42T
The gearing of the touring triple crankset was a bit too low, this road crankset allows for effortless climbing while providing safer top gear inches for the descents.
As we all know, none of our projects are really “final”, so maybe it should have been written as final for now!
Peace guys and keep building, refining and creating, without limitations.
Rat Rodding, is, if anything, the passionate act of creating something functional from an ostensible pile of rubble.
Just finished this Muscle bike for Boy. early 70's Schwinn frame. early 70's Schwinn 10 speed forks (for 27" wheel). Schwinn should have made this bike.
