That's it. I am guessing that the owner of the barn had it moved there and staged the scene.

Do you ever ride around there? I'll keep an eye out for you.

I would agree as I am sure I have a few photos from those "props".

I get through there on occasion as my son and I ride Neiffer Rd. a good amount when we go with a group from Java's Brewin.

If you send it to Gugie he could probably straighten those stays for you.

1964 Huffy Sportsman - Nottingham England



As foisted upon me at a swap meet. Free.


About the only original part reused was the frame and the headbadge.


Aluminum was used quite a bit in the refurbishment of this “lightweight”


Chainguard is Raleigh (actual manufacturer), wheels are a set that includes modern Nexus hub. Jagwire c


Lettering by yours truly. Headbadge and seat tube decals are repops


Bianchi Milano sourced the Kenda tires used. They look much better on the red Sportsman.

1974 Holdsworth Professional. Great colours. Nice riding bike too.


1962 Holdsworth Cyclone with Campagnolo Record. Lovely lugs on this one. I'm going to convert the crank to a triple so I can make it up the hills around here.


1946 Herse Competition. I really should ride this one more, but need to do something with the gearing:

Thank You(?) She does have a certainje ne sais quoi thatcharms everybody I'll have to find a more recent pic with the Chorus rather than the SR and Cobalto. If you ever find yourself in No East Indiana your welcome to take her for a ride.

Hahaha - sorry about the 'backhanded' compliments but Ugly Betty does stand out from the crowd - in a good way of course. I'd love to visit East Indiana and even take Ugly Betty for a quick spin but, unfortunately, that trip will probably never happen.

If you're ever in Australia and head up north to Hervey Bay, you'd be most welcome and you may even want to take one of my bikes for a ride.

I posted my '46 Hobbs earlier, and only just thought about a couple others "H" bikes that I overlooked. Unlike the Hobbs, both of the following have left my hands.

Houdaille, that I purchased as a frame/fork and built up for my wife:



Holdsworth Professional that wound up a victim of the first or second bike purge:

This one is also French and starts with an H--Helyett. No period correct or even nearly original parts on it, however, including the fork and front rack.
