    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!

    its a nine bolt setup that clamps to the hub like the hub adapter setup.

    the gt80 kit showed up but the bolts to mount it to the jug were to long and the shorter one i picked up were to. the choke rod hits the frame so more work.

    Cheap fenders have caused someserious accidents, broken bones, and ER trips to members on this forum. Just saying. There's a plastic set you can buy on ebay that don't mount right ON the wheel like that, they mount higher.
