Huffy Slangshot (formerly the Crusty Cougar)

Good new and bad news in the tire department. The slick is going to work perfectly for this one but the front tire is so far gone that I can't keep it on the rim. I am now looking for a heavily used but still usable front tire with some character in case anybody has something interesting???

In the meantime I got all the bearings greased and the brake and shifter hooked up. I only had one old white cable so I will have to age the newer one to match.


Also have to dig for my bag of cable stays, these plastic ones are very temporary.


The fork didn't want to come out without a fight. In the process it saw a lot of Kroil and that exposed quite a bit of original purple...too much purple.

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across this piece of junk with one notable part on it (not the handmade custom rack)...

A little rough but I think it will work nicely on the Coug.
hey I found one of them recently too! I am going to try to use it on my MMBO bike...

Mine is even a little rougher and crustier than yours I think, but I am hoping to make it work.
