    I've got passion for Huffy. My first bike was a fine machine, a 1976 Huffy Wildfire. :-)

    Alas, it had no bottle opener, just some cheezy flames...

    Nothing will ever compete with my first Huffy, damn I had a blast with it. I'm 99% sure this was mine.

    Back in the 60s Huffy made good bikes. I
    had a couple of them. I wish I still had them.

    Best, John

    No bike is bad for it's intended purpose.
    Last I saw Huffy put's stickers on the bikes
    telling you it's intended purpose, and the last I read
    on the Mountain bike's it says, more or less, Not Intended for trail use!

    Like Schwinn and many others...the Huffy's of yester-year were not the same as the Huffy's of today. I had one as my first bike....the awesome Huffy mono-shock, circa 1978-1979.



    I bet there are not many riders over 40 on this whole forum who didn't get their start on a Huffy!!

    I believe Huffy's of today are Pacific Cycle brands, much like Schwinn, Mongoose, Murray, and the like.

    If it weren't for Huffy I never would have started Mountainbiking. Most mortals still think $1,000 is a lot to spend on a bike. Some of us still fall in love before they commit the big $.

    Wow. Panama Jack even. Only to be ridden while wearing Iridium Oakley Blades with florescent frames.

    My 2nd bike was a Huffy Pro Thunder as seen here:

    i had a Murray mountain bike that was bright blue and was a tank. It got me into mountain biking at a young age. I loved that bike, I ended up destroying that bike

    My Huffy finally broke (the fork actually) when I jumped it over a flaming ramp in the middle of our cul-de-sac. I think I may have caught 1 foot of air, but I was having a great time. :-)

    Huffys were the XR75's of bicycles, learned how to ride this, then move on to bigger and better things.

    Heck yeah! I remember the Huffy and I also remember feeling uncool because I didn't have the handlebar cross pad and the top bar crosspads on my bike. I also remember my first frankenbike that my dad put together..he painted it this crap brown color that he was painting an old truck he was restoring.

    Didn't look like much but it had it where it needed it - could jump ditches and all kinds of stuff with it.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.
