Â Edward’s 1983 Huffy Bay Pointe.
Bought this Huffy Bay Pointe at a local charity thrift shop for $15. It had all its parts and just a little rust on the (thin) chrome. I tore it all the way down and greased and adjusted everything. It is amazing what a little car wax and steel wool can do. The tires and tubes are original It was probably made when I was a 10th grader in 1983–the last digit of the serial number is “3.” Also, it has a U.S. Cycling Team decal, indicating that it was sold around the time of the 1984 Olympics. I’m sure this is just like the machines they rode in the games, because it has a fancy French deraillieur. This perfect specimen was priced at half what they were selling a “mountain bike” for. That’s good for me, I like these dorky upright bikes.
