The fenders might need to go. I've heard horrible tales of them breaking off and causing a crash. I believed it, but didn't heed the warning. Mine broke off and almost got me. Be careful.

Also, it needs a front brake!

Otherwise, it's cool!

Sweet. I just couldn't see it in the video I guess.

You can also reinforce the fenders if you want to keep them.

Howdy & welcome! A Huffy frame is also the 'skeleton' of my ever evolving build.

Probably a good thing it was raining..........you need to re-install your new head 1/4 turn. The fins need to be going the same way as the frame so air can more easily cool the head.

Best of luck in your upcoming adventures!

I agree those fenders might Cause trouble. Specifically the flimsy mounts. I had that kind on my huffy Cranbrook, replaced then with 3/32 x 1/2 steel barstock from the hardware store. Solid as a rock. Still inspected them before every ride regardless. Sweet ride!
