November Challenge #2

Huffy prepares to go in search of outdoor art

Max gets his morning drink

The Huffy is a gen-u-ine Made in the USA bicycle manufactured by the Huffy Corporation in Celina, Ohio

Seemed fitting to photograph the Huffy and the Stars and Stripes

Wicked looking object was retrieved from road

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Hi Rich,
    The Huffy looks good. You’ve even got the pump which is usually the first thing to get lost off the bike. I like the saddle bag too. Did you restore this bike or is it “as found”?
    heers,
    Keith

      Thanks Keith, the Huffy is a survivor, have had it since is was new — it has some ‘patina’ from its 45 years — but for a department store bicycle its OK.
      It was converted to a 3 speed with a 1956 Sturmey-Archer hub a friend gave me.
      The seat bag is an upscale 😉 one from Bell Sports intended as a handlebar bag.
      Its fun to put it back in service once in a while.

    The evil object in the road looks like a pen in an inkwell from a distance when viewing on a smartphone!

      Heh — desks at school had a place for an ink well, but no ink bottle, back in my middle Ordovician elementary school days.

    Nice classic Huffy Rich. That even object looks … ummm .. evil.

      Thanks!
      Ive always stopped to clear road debris over the years, countless nails, screws, etc — that one looked particularly menacing.

    Huffy – a good name for a bike. If it were mine, I could call it huffy and puffy

      It can do that to a person 🙂
      The carbon-fiber people have little to be concerned about from this one.
