The Ultimate Hipster bike:






The "Huffy Premier".

Just looking at this bike makes me want to break out my Bootsy Collins Star Rhinestone Sunglasses and lay down funk for the rest of the day.

Oh and it's up for auction on Goodwill.com.

Take Care.

Is that a light or reflector on the front mudguard?

WAG is a light, but really hard to tell.

Since6,
I trust you have Bootsy's latest: The Power of the One. It has been out about 2 weeks now, and features a bunch of Jacobs School of Music students and staff. The horn parts are all played by one person. Features a bit of George Benson, with cameo from Sly Stone. Great stuff for the Funkateers! Smiles, MH

If you don't see this thing coming, a reflector ain't going to help you.

No must get. Power of the One, just enjoyed, World Wide Funk, the intro where Bootsy comes out of the cave under the I believe Ohio river is just too good.

Mixte frame, aluminum stem, decent wire stays that go to eyelets instead of the axles...

...if it wasn't for the Ashtabula crankset and piss-poor stamped steel kickstand, I'd be asking "when did Huffy get into the market of making decent bikes?"

That is a lot like my sonís Covid bike.
just in reverse.
itís a funky mix of parts, but we used what we had, and itís what he wanted.

and he may be a modern teen, but he is a funk fan.
