    Huffy frame Tube Caps: Rail, Wheel, Slingshot, Dragster, etc.

    The frame caps are meant to give you a permanent replacement for the original chrome plated plastic tube frame caps that came stock on the 1960's 1970's Huffy bikes. The original plastic tube frame caps are usually broken, missing, or become dull in appearance and tend to crack and allow the...

    How my daughter surprised me

    I just had to share this, my daughter surprised me and painted this for me to go with my MBBO5 musclebike. Kingfish254 sent me the red one as a trophy for taking first place in the MBBO5 build off and my daughter found one just like it at Hobby Lobby and decided to try and paint it to match my...

    Altered Ego (class 1)

    Mild-mannered Monday through Friday 9 to 5 Huffy rail but on the weekend this Huffy Rail cuts loose to it's "Alter Ego" with its stretched out Top Fueler Forks in front and slammed forward Ape hanger handlebars. Well that's the way I envisioned this build. The other thing I wanted to do was to...

    (MBBO#5 Class 1) Huffy Altered Ego

    So as a kid I had what I felt was the badest Muscle bike around, the Firestone (Huffy) Rail 5-speed and today I still feel that way, that’s no disrespect to the other Muscle bikes or owners out there I just loved my bike that much as a kid. Being from southern Ohio only about 40 minutes or so...

    Searching for a bike for the MBBO5

    Questions on Schwinn Rams Horn

    I'm a Huffy guy and have come to know a lot more about them over Schwinns, so I went to buy a Huffy Super Stock from a guy that had all Scwinns in his collection except for this one Huffy. I saw he had this beautiful Schwinn Rams Horn there and I asked if it was for sale and long story short I...

    (MBBO 4 CLASS #1) WHEEL'N in the years

    Well my first attempt at building a bike for the MBBO, "WHEEL'n in the years" is finished. I chose this bike because when I was a kid I always thought this bike was cool, a buddy of mine was the only kid in the neighborhood that had one. When I was able to get this one through Ebay on the...

    Firestone Rail (FireRail)

    I've been doing double duty building my Wheel'n in the years MBBO bike and also building this bike along side of it. I wanted to also put it in the MBBO but I had already painted the frame so that excluded it from the competition. So I figured on building them both once I started the MBBO and...

    I have a question, on one of the other threads someone mentioned re-popped Cheater Slick tires. Could someone enlighten me, are there re-pop slicks out there, what varieties, if so where do you find them? How can you tell the difference. Any info would be appreciated.

    (MBBO 4 CLASS #1) WHEEL'N in the years

    I wanted to get involved in last years MBBO build off but just didn't have enough knowledge built up yet, so after a year of a lot of questions, bike swap meets, and trial n error I'm ready to jump in with both feet. I love Huffy's since that's what I had as a kid and started building a replica...

    Good friends and great luck

    I sold a pair of my Huffy Rail tube caps to someone I live near that had one Rail he was finishing up. He said he only had one Rail but is a Schwinn Krate and Flying Wedge bike guy, he showed me pictures of his collection and it was very impressive. We had been talking bikes and he said he had a...
