Last week I collected the Huffy Sports Bike below from someone who was selling it on a local ads web page in Ohio, Today(Sunday) I took it out for a spin early morning and ended up doing a 38 mile loop, see google map below. It rides great and the three gears still work along with the brakes which came in handy when a squirrel tried to jump under my front wheel!!

Is that a smile or a grimace?

Related to that old saddle if my experience on mine is anything to go by :|

Only you would do a 38mile shakedown on an elderly gentleman's cruiser! :lol: Brilliant, I love it 8)

I'd say we should get them together but I only go as far as the shops on my Esquire...
