  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    Hello all,

    I am new to the bicycle thing but long in the tooth in restoration. I have restored a couple of cars and an airplane. However, while rooting around in my late grandparents barn I found my mothers first bike. This 1953 Huffy Dial-Your-Ride. It's not in the shape it once was, nor the shape it will soon be! I would like to restore it to new shape and give it to her for her birthday at the end of July. That's where you all come in. I need information like where to get a new headlight and what type of paint to use.

    I'd give clean and preserve a shot first, it's only original once. If that doesn't work for you, original is most likely baked enamel, exact composition probably no longer legal. :mrgreen: As for the light check out the "swap meet" elsewhere on this forum. viewforum.php?f=33
