I'm glad I kept it. Maybe it'll be a collector's item someday.
If I were you I'd probably just hang that puppy up in my garage and save it.

I'll have to search for it but I posted a thread here years ago about a bike my wife found in her parent's shed. Another collector. It's hanging in my garage today. An 80s vintage, made in the U.S. Huffy that was only ridden about 5 miles.
If you look at the post of my latest build, you will see a mid-80's Huffy I got at the same sale! Very cool bike except for the thin rear dropouts and cheap-%$@ hardware package...
Maybe we are related?
