Definitely needs the banana seat.

Wow. A 26 inch version of my beloved childhood memory.

NICE find!

That T-bar shifter is gonna be IMPOSSIBLE to find,though.

Frame problem?

Hi, check closely, it looks like that seatpost has damaged the top of the seattube.

large so u really remember this bike ive never seen it ........so it did come in 26 inch. then it sure looks like it did .....and we are the same age i know i was into my cherry crate in the 70s hey iam thinking a chopper style bike with this one flat bar springer front end 20 inch front rim the head tube looks long to me ..might be a issue ,,then again might not be maybe.. more to fit it just trying to get a feel for the bike style iam not sure i want a banana seat on it if i do i could get a tall sissy bar still thinking like i said but i realy like the frame well i seen one on ebay i didnt like it much has two levers on it and some wood grain (same as my dad station wagon ) i was thinking i could make one the clutch i dont think i want gears on this bike i dont use them on my other bike good eye mike thanks will look at that first see if it can be fixed the bike looks like it has all differnt kind of metal all over it some look to be like copper and some a shiny steel seat post looks to be like copper if that possible

copper?

when you say it looks like copper what you may be seeing is brass. I can't say for a huffy but most quality bikes of your before tig welding chinese sweat shops were brazed. Even low dollar ones up into the 80s were usually done proper even though they didn't use the fine thinwalled tubing that demanded it.

I can't say that I remember that bike. It's obviously Huffy's answer to the Schwinn 5-speed StingRay. At a guess, they probably didn't sell many. That would be why no one remembers 'em
