Ok, so, these were the cheapest tires on eBay!Day one for my challenge started today!
So, this was hard! This thing, (TREK 3900) Since 2007, has NEVER been put up in storage!!!!

After an early AM pedal swap & spiffy tune, I borrowed the wife’s old Raleigh Technium.

The chain was definitely dry and had a few spots of light surface rust on it. -the closest petroleum based product I could find during my tuneup was marvel mystery oil, which I promptly put on the chain and dag-gum! It worked great!!!!
I did my Regular Saturday morning 20 mile ride.
So uh.... after riding a 39 pound bike pretty much exclusively the past 13 years, this little rocket was quite the experience!!!!!
Two words for ya; Rolling Resistance
Holy moly! Thing made my ride cake!!!
Next up; Huffy Time!!!!!
My wife said she hated it and that it looked ridiculous. So..... it’s cool?????
I have no idea how to decipher Huffy serial numbers. I think this is an 80’s rig. The interweb said the Savannah production run was in the 80’s and ended in the early 90’s.
I am stoked it’s a 3 speed. I’m more stoked to put all these parts on that rusted out Murray/ western flyer!
