Another parts bike

Discussion in 'FRESH FINDS' started by outskirtscustoms, May 5, 2012.

  1. Just found a cool little girl's 20" Huffy. Okay so there's nothing cool about it except it came with some cool disk wheel covers and an MX brake handle and caliper that I can strip off of it before chopping it up for bar stock and scrap. Will get pics later.
     
  2. Scored this little thing at a road side flea market today for $5. These wheel covers may make it on to my build off bike. Come to think of it I need to get started!

    I love the way bikes sound riding with those wheel covers. Good memories
     
  4. Yeah they always have that certain "Hum-mm" to them. I used to have a set on an old Schwinn Predator that I had as a kid (I put them on, not original). Looked bad as heck even if it was pink (Radberry Red)

    those covers was worth the 5 bucks
     
  7. That's what I was thinking. Now I'm having visions of a salt flat racer bike. Soon as I looked at it I figured the wheel covers cleaned up have got to be worth $20 for the set with all the bolts and reflectors, the MX brake handle, cable, and caliper $10, wheel set $25, Then the rest of it gets my $5 back at the scrapyard. Don't you love $5 bikes?
