    I have been looking for one of these for a long time.I had one when i was about thirteen.
    I have been looking since i got into bike collecting.Posted a few wanted ads and finally found one on this forum.Bike has a little sun fade but is in very nice condition.
    Not sure about the tires.Could they be original?
    They are the same tire that was used on the huffy bandit.

    Very Nice !!! That was my first brand new bike back in 1979. I just found one for myself a couple of years ago, it is in quite nice shape as well, I will try to post some pics as soon as the wife can help me. Great Find !!!

    Great looking bike. Don't think those tires are stock though, but who cares. They suit the bike well in my opinion. :D
