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.
