    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    Huffy? I'd trashpick a Schwinn or something if money was an issue, but if you want a huffy, your buisness. By the way, wrong forum.

    Ignore him

    The others were being supportive with constructive criticism.
    They were just pointng out if your gonna make this a labor of love, maybe start with a better frame.
    And if you love your Huffy, go for it!
    Post pics when your done

    Apart from the boat anchor, its a nice bike. It took where I needed it to go, but then i sold it and got what i thought was a better vintage bike, but wasnt! It'll look nice with that black flake.
