    Higgins but how old ?

    when i bought this, i was thinking mid fifties or so from the cell phone pics i had. An aquaintance called and said they found a bike in his mother in laws property and wanted to know if i wanted it. I certainly didn't want to discourage those kind of calls so I offered $50 thinking that if...

    Ha! We were down there for a long weekend "vacation" as well and got back home Sunday. From the looks of your pics, we weren't far from you either on the beach. Right by Sandcastle, and the beach access road next to it. :D

    Rat Tri bike?

    I was thinking about using one of my rats and enter my first tri next weekend! Not quite what you were thinking though I'm sure. Sure would be funny to get a pic of the transition area with my bike sitting there :D BTW, I changed my mind when I saw the course and the hills. :shock:

    What is burning man???

    wish there was a "like" button here! My wife is a fire performer also, and though we haven't been to "the" burn we go to our regional burns every year.

    Removing clear coat from chrome Spaceliner?

    On mine the clear was flaky in a few areas so I scraped it all off with a razor blade, then just kept going over the whole frame. This semed to work the fastest and didn't hurt the chrome at all. Then spent more time on the rusty spots with steel wool (seat tube etc. )

    Summary of all mass market chopper bikes made in last decade

    Huffy used that frame for lots of promotional stuff, I have one that originally was a "Shamu" bike with sea world logos and all. Black, BEEFY tripple trees, and white stickers on it to make it look like a killer whale :shock: Also had Kenda flame 20X3's front and rear.

    Triple Tree for 20"?

    These in the pic are with a set of 20X3 wheels/tires that were on a kids bike i picked up off craigslist. Here is the frame they were on. Most tripples are adjustable to be long or as short as you need and the only limiting factor would be head tube size.

    Martin's Bike Shop Ephrata, PA

    Cool shop, CycleTruck (member here) just moved up there a couple weeks ago. He had some pics from a local auction that happens every tuesday. Scored some nice bikes from there for cheap! 8)
