    Is this an AMF Roadmaster Sky King Bicycle Frame?

    AMF or Cleveland Welding Company. (AMF bought them out 1950) This site isn't strictly speaking about "restoration", but it could easily be rebuilt with common parts. Browse the forums to get a handle on what we do here. If you aren't into old bikes, you could likely get some cash for it in the...

    Huffy

    Mash-up of late 70s Good Vibrations coaster and 80s ten speed Huffy, but I don't recall the model name.

    What is it?

    The style of fork crown looks it, and 3-pc crank and lugged frame "American cruiser" style bike usually are. Not 100% certain, but it looks the part.

    What is it?

    Whether or not it's worth it is probably going to depend on the crank. There are some people on here with German bikes that may be able to help you out. It may be helpful if you can finish taking it apart, watch out for loose ball bearings. Even just a picture of the other side could be useful...

    Fastback-sket?

    Looks like a typical universal handle bar basket, I don't have a clue about that center mount though.

    Fitchtel and Sachs hub. :cool2: Better roller than the New Departure that it started life with, assuming it's in good shape.

    What bicycle is this?

    Yeah, that fork follows the lines nicely. If the head set doesn't rock or bind I'd leave it for now. Trying to find a straight "correct" one could be tough.

    What bicycle is this?

    Not only the dropouts, but the way the seat post tube passes through the top tube are quite distinctive traits, 100% certain the main frame is Westfield. looks like it may have external dust shields on the crank, which could be original, but it should have a 5 spoke sprocket. I agree that the...

    What bicycle is this?

    I'd bet on 13/16", due to the straight tank tube. although I have seen bikes shimmed out for 5/8" solid post

    What bicycle is this?

    Definitely a Westfield frame, Columbia being the Westfield in house brand, sold with different names by other suppliers. I would link to a date code page, but apparently the Mr. Columbia site no longer exists. :cry:

    Recommend Marine Grease?

    I've used the molasses looking marine stuff in the past, it tends to coagulate in dry storage conditions. Been using auto parts red lithoplex for quite a while with no complaint. I knew a guy who swore by Vaseline, but I've never tried it. :crazy:
