Hey everybody, great site you have here? My name is Mike, long time bike admirer and small collector of bikes I had when a kid. I did want to find a Thunder Road like the one my dad and I restored (incorrectly, but to our taste) as a kid. I did find this bike with the correct fenders and chain guard like the one I did have back in the day (just need to remove the plastic tank). Before I do anything though I did want to find out what this bike is, year and etc., but cannot find anything on it? Does anyone have any literature, news paper / catalog ads for this bike?



What I do know:

  • Called the Silver King 90
  • Monark sticker on head tube (a Huffman MFG CO.)
  • Head tube serial number HC 5861173 (from 1975?)


Thanks for your help!



Mike

Welcome aboard!

That's right, 1975, first number is the last digit of the year on a Huffy. On the BMX museum page, they have some Monark bikes like that, but not the 75 model, 78 and newer.
Here's a 75 Huffy Thunder Road they do show:
