1969 Huffy Seapointe?
I've never heard of it. A friend of mine has this bike (see pictures below, it's the green one) and he offered it to me as a trade for some simple work. He just needs some new cables and a tune up on another bike. It's a good deal, but what is it? He said it's a 1969 Huffy Seapointe, but I can't find much to support that. Is it a ladies bike? Is that the right year? Any information anyone could supply would be awesome! The bike is about 3 hours away so pictures are all I have.
Do the simple work, make him watch and help so he can do it himself the next time.
Take the Huffy, get it working OK, give it to Goodwill.

Yes it's a lady's frame, a mixte style to be exact, and it's worth its weight in scrap except to someone that can and will use it. The mixte frame looks pretty cool, I have to say.
If in doubt, assume sarcasm

Thanks wv_bob. I looked up the frame style and I kind of got the impression that a mixte style frame was unisex. I am toying with the idea of making it a winter project. I would strip it, paint it, update any components that are too far gone and ride it along a paved bike path in town. Just to have something unique.
It's not actually unique. I can't imagine paying more than 30-50 bucks on it.
My life is a never ending conveyor belt of projects. If you think it will give you fulfillment for a job well done, go for it. Sell it to someone who needs a commuter at a really low price. A 30 dollar bike in road worthy condition is the world to someone who needs it. That gets you good karma too
