One of my favorite OTS to have been featured on our beloved Gallery was Ben’s Murray “The Dude”. Then, “The Dude” was stolen leaving Ben—and many of us—broken hearted and searching for answers. But, just as you morn the passing of a family pet, a time comes when finding a suitable replacement is appropriate. I’m sure that after owning “The Dude”, finding the right bike to fill this immense void is no small task. I was very pleased when I saw what Ben had chosen as his trusty replacement steed. This cherry Huffy Aerowind is not quite as obscure as “The Dude” but obscure in its own right, and just like “The Dude” this Aerowind looks as if it were stuffed between someone’s mattress for that past 25 year.
Stopped at a number of garage sales this weekend, and didn’t see many bikes for sale. I asked at a few if they had any bikes they were selling, and up on some hooks at one of them was this hunk of ‘Aero’ beauty.
