    A friend of mine gave me this frame several years ago. I'm thinking about using it for a build, maybe the RRBBO #8. I have no idea what brand it is, what do you guys think it is? Here's some photos of it.

    Thanks CCR.

    I found some numbers on the frame near the rear where the back axle bolts on.

    Does this help ID it?

    I found this and w/ the serial number 6H312911, it's probably a Huffy, maybe a 1966.

    Huffy Serial Numbers
    Determining a Huffy's age requires two steps:

    The last digit of the year of manufacture can be determined by the first digit of the serial number.
    Then you have to look for other characteristics to determine the decade of manufacture.
    Example:
    Your serial number starts with "5"
    Your cycle has 26 x 1.75 tires
    Your cycle has a built in tank
    This would be a cycle manufactured in 1965

    Might be a 76, those 60s Huffys had those bullet tips that fit in the cantilever tube ends. This one looks like they're closed off. -Adam

    Betting I built a hundred cruisers the summer of 1985 with that frame for K-mart, they were all Huffy.

    Thanks guys. Yeah, it accrued to me that it might be a 1976 frame.
