I'd say late '90s or newer. It's low-end, but free!

That looks a little too nice to be just cast away.

I'd say late 90's or later. Trek was still selling cantilever brakes on their lower-end bikes around 97. Probably took longer than that for Huffy to pick up the v-brake.

Definitely late 90's. I remember seeing that in the X-Mart stores when I had no money and was looking for a bike! It was ok, just keep an eye on the stem if it's the original, they tend to break...

Ummmmm, I think you just stole a bike from some careless kid who left it in the woods.

Why would you think that a bike in the woods was yours to take?

I ride into the woods sometimes, leave my bike and do a little walking. Glad you're not around at the time.
