    A racing themed Huffy Byke (yes it is "Byke"). Did some body work on the frame then rattle can painted it "Pontiac Blue". Lettering and numbers are vinyl decals. Fat 24x3 dirt track tires front & rear, the rear wheel I laced around an old German "Schwinn approved" coaster-brake hub with the grease/oil zerk. Mag sprocket, "RS" seat, piston valve caps, original headbadge. Chainguard is off a 24" Schwinn Racer.

    aka_locojoe, Very cool byke, love the racing theme. Did you have to modify the rear to fit the the Fat 24x3 tires.

    Thanks.
    The tire fit the rear fine. No modification. The front fork is another story. It's so close I have to keep the wheel really true or it rubs.

    Weather was nice so I took #14 for a ride to the old service station in town to check out the newly restored gas pumps that have just been added.
