    I'm kinda on the fence about selling it. Wants a frankenstein jackshaft set-up SOO bad! Maybe a little bitty 4-stroke?

    Funny story about mine. I rode it to a bicycle shop about twenty years ago. I was inside and when I walked out all the bike store guys were crowded around it. They wanted to know if I was selling it. At the time I didn't realize it was unique. They mentioned the odd front shifter/freewheel and the fact that it had a metal head badge. They said it was worth more than when it was new. 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 :confused: Huffy I got at the same sale! Very cool bike except for the thin rear dropouts and cheap-%[email protected] hardware package...
    Maybe we are related?
    :p

    Yep. I had one of those too. It was one of several that have been stolen from me over the years. Concord, Huffy, Bianchi, Hercules, a few Schwinns, probably one or two others. I've been slowly getting better at both anti-theft measures and choosing lower-crime storage areas.
