Huffy Camaro

This is what I did recently:

I'm pretty happy with the result, not a 'pro' job but still a lot better than it was.

I have to thank you for this post. That bike looks great! Looking at your bike I think I might finally know what mine is. I don't have the tank or gaurd and she's yard art coming back to life so no decals. But the frame and fenders look identical. All I was sure of before is that it looked like a huffy and had a very faded Fiestone rear rack that may or may not have belonged with it. Right vintage. but nothing else to go by. I think judging by a gaurd I checked to see if it would work the gaurd you have is what I would need. I haven't got it road worthy yet, but am looking forward to it. Although there were certainly higher end bikes I have found that the Old Dayton Ohio Huffy's hold their own quite nicely.

Normally, just the sight of "HUFFY" makes me cringe but I must say you've definitely made that bike live again. Nice work!

Thanks for the kind words, I'm pretty happy with it. Now to turn my attention to my grandfathers old VISTA Cavilier, It's a bike that I kept because I used to ride it as a kid in the 70's.

Also, to Tornado60, I've got another similar huffy with the same frame and chainguard, but the fenders are painted not chrome. I'm pretty sure it's the original paint because there is pinstriping on it and it's mighty old but there is no name on it. I've also got a huffy SantaFe and a Savanna, the Savanna has a similar paint job but looks to be a few years younger. Anyone know of a huffy database w/pictures?
