Re: Junk

I'd consider buying that Huffy Olympia frame, or whole bike if you decide to sell it.

digging up an old thread....


It looks like it was 1-1/2 years ago that I bought the awkward Huffy shown on page 1 from Cubenzo. I finally got around to putting it back together this past weekend after sourcing a new front wheel for it. I don't know why I am wasting my time and money on this bike. I have a soft spot for old Huffy road bikes I guess because I used to deliver papers on them.

I removed the ten speed running gear, replaced chainring with a Tioga bmx, and put a bmx freewheel on back.

Here it is so far in it's disc-covered 26"x24" glory:

I'm waiting on a seatpost and stem for it. Then if I can find an inexpensive set of bullhorn handlebars, it'll be done.
