Hi,

I believe this is an AMF Roadmaster Sky King bicycle frame. Am I right? If so, do you think a bicycle in this condition is restorable or should I just throw it in the dumpster?

Thanks,
Eddie

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 for sale section here, or a site called "The Cabe". It would be a real shame to throw it away.

It definitely could be...and it could be ratroded, customized or restored...or just ridden. No need to trash it, there are plenty of people that would dig it.

"L" is 1961. A 60 year old American made frame (Arkansas). Huffy chain wheel. The model name is unknown unless you have the chain guard that would show the name. The frame is the same on many different models back then. I had a Silver Flyer from way back when. Same frame. I added the rest, all 26" beach cruiser parts fit right on. I would check it to see how bad the rust was and probably use that frame to make a decent cruiser, but not a restoration project. A mint condition AMF bike won't bring in enough money to make it worth your while. It would be better than most any cruiser you could buy for under 200 bucks.

Thanks for all of the information! I will post the bicycle in the "For Sale" section. Maybe someone can do something with it.

Thanks Again!
Eddie
