    Old 1950'S-1960'S Huffy Bike

    Alright guy I have a late 50' early 60's Huffy Bike. It looks like a 1962 Holiday Huffy Impala Bike but it is not one. It says "Huffy" On the chain guard, missing front chrome fender. Any suggestions on what year or model it might be? I can provide more pictures if needed! HPIM4547.jpgHPIM4548.jpgHPIM4549.jpgHPIM4553.jpg

    I can't help you with the age of the bike. I can suggest Wald as a possible source for a chrome fender though. You may have to buy front and rear.

    I believe the Bendix coaster brake hub with the single red band indicates that the bike is 1960 or newer. I doubt anyone could tell you the specific age of the bike, Huffys aren't really collectors items.

    Niagara Cycle does sell a brand new fender set for it for 20 bucks: http://www.niagaracycle.com/product_...oducts_id=5800 (Make sure the tires on it are 26 x 1.75... looks like they are).
    The supports for the fenders are sold separately it looks like, you'd need one for the front and two for the rear: http://www.niagaracycle.com/product_...ducts_id=31227

    I took some more pictures even of the area where the serial number should be. Right now I am wondering at what type of Huffy Bike this is. It is very similar to the Huffy Camaro, Huffy El Camino, and the Huffy Galaxie but has a different chain guard design. More pictures to help out. I am also not a collector just a kid trying to fix this bicycle up for cruising around.

    Looks like an early to mid 60s Huffy Galaxy with the tank missing.

    Seems so but I'm really shaky about the chain guard design, why wouldn't they match up. I also knew that a tank was missing, I wasn't interested in including the tank in the final restoration. Pic of Huffy Galaxie1026137.jpgDSCI0152.jpg

    Okay I found the serial number on the frame near the back tire.
    5H349687 Can this help identify the year in any way possible.

    Probably a 1965.

    KGrHqVosFCr6G6pbDBQPL5J3RQ60_58.jpgThis is the only other huffy bike I have found that has the same chain guard design. Link: http://host2.ministrycrm.com/~ratrod...67102&p=646452

    Found a 1965 Huffy catalog for you: http://musclebikeforums.yuku.com/top...s#.UOxfb2_Lcph
    Nothing in there that matches it exactly, all the ones with chrome fenders have the longer flatter chain guard, but who knows, maybe the factory was out of painted fenders or longer chain guards the day yours was made.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    If your planning to build her up to specs have fun, its going to be a long and expensive process, if you're going to build it up the way you like it who cares what it is? Slap an after market springer fork on her, a set of ducktail fenders, a vintage front and rear light set and kabam! Badd arse bike! This one looked something like yours when I got it.

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I am hoping to "Rat Rod" it up like yours; I'm going to put a front fender on, LED bullet headlight, and a speedometer that acts as a odometer too. 51s1WoMDiIL._SL500_AA300_.jpg
