    $10 bucks at a yard sale. Found it literally within 15 minutes of selling the rack mount build...don't need to tell me twice!
    dry tires hold air. Needs nothing else.
    Steel is real yo.

    Easy to add V-brakes if I feel like it, but probably just kit and flip it to help with parts for the OCC.
    Just what I needed, another bike for the herd.

    10 bucks is good and a steel frame would be nice for a strong build.....

    $10 is great for a bike with straight serviceable wheels.

    Nice find... I paid $35 for a simular old monkey wards mountain bike last summer, solid frames and easy to motorize.

    This is the second example of this same Huffy frame I have found in my area.
    Apparently someplace had a good sale or something! This one is in great shape too! Stored inside for decades.
    The first one had totally wasted cables and serious rust and cost $15.

    Ever hear of a Harley bike? I have one that was picked up at a Goodwill store for 25.00. Like new also. My herd is looking like yours also with the exception on the ones I have robbed parts. Had a real nice mountain bike I cut up for parts on a Zombie build. Oh well. gphil

    Lots of people have heard this one, but mine was free. A 1948 (or so) JC Higgins that didn't sell at a yard sale (probably because the harsh intervening years since then were very plain to see). With a bit of elbow grease and good paint she cleaned up nicely.

    Final version with 49cc parts engine installed and running like a sewing machine.

    Had a man offer to trade me a running '73 Pace Arrow motorhome for it.
    Sounded too good to be true but I have since inspected the motorhome and he is serious!
    Here's hoping he can find the title!

    I had one of those bikes in my early teens. Trouble with it was, I never grew big enough to ride it comfortably. Was a good bike, though. Nice work, and good luck with the motor home!
