    i wasnt planning on keeping it. i already own a bike the gmc denali. i grabbed it out of the woods because i could see it from my bedroom window. i stored it in my garage and told my neighbor about the huffy bike i found and he said if its blue its his. he said he forgot about it a couple weeks ago and went fourwheeling and forgot about his bike there. so i showed him it and he said thanks and in return gave me a really old heavy grandma style bike.

    <3 any thread that has "GMC Denali" in it. They always seem beyond odd.

    That old grandma bike may very well be the best of the bunch, and by a long ways too.

    Turn the grandma bike into a sweet single speed cruiser (if it isn't already). Does it have nice brazing work or is it not old enough for that?
