    Hi toyparts. Welcome to MB.c Glade your here. Your bike looks solid. One thing I noticed
    was the front and rear storage. Ya can never have to much hauling space. Enjoy the ride!

    Sweet ride. I like the pilfered Kroger basket for the front! LOL!! Is it detachable so you can carry it around the store with you?! :lol: How's the brakes holding up? Does it have the standard C style with the micro pads?

    Actually its a fred meyers basket and its attached
    the brakes are doing fine so far the front has cantilevered (sp) brakes and the rear has the old C style,,
    i scavenged a set of forks off a newer mountain bike for the shocks and the breaks and the wheels too
    i found the whole bike on craigslist for $200.00 and thought that would be perfect to strap on the motorhome

    You bought the bike with motor on it for $200? Now that's a steal! Please don't tell me you paid that much for a huffy by itself. "grab the shotgun Martha, the herd needs a thinning!"

    bike & motor = $200.00---------craigslist
    i saw the ad and then did alittle research and found that the motors cost up to $200.00 alone
    So seeing how i had just sold my harley and had lots of money in my pocket that would just be wasted on stuff like bill and such ,, and i had always wanted one. especially when my son was 8 or 9 yo we did alot of bike riding then, and i think i will get him one soon even though hes 18 now
    i call the guy drove to his house and took a test ride and talked him down from $225.00 to $200.00 and bought it !
    its a great addition to my motorhome
    it hangs from a bike rack on the front
    the harley needed a trailer to take it with me anywhere
