    This bike reminds me so much of Huffy Santa Fe 1-=2peed that I have in queue to restore. Same color pattern and same parts eg. the seat.

    Wow, Darren, undesirable or not, it’s great to see an AMF OTS in rare completely rust-free mint condition!
    It should bring back lots of poignant memories of suburban-raised American readers!

    Not to detract from your enjoyment, but I can’t remember how many of these, and it’s cloned gaspipe department-store cousins (commonly labelled Murray, Huffy, Columbia, Sears, etc.), I’ve picked out of the trash in feeble attempts to refurbish them into functional/reliable bicycles.
    Ultimately, the sheer volume of wobbly steel rims, siezed cables, worn/loose bearing cups/cones, crimped-end dropouts, stamped-steel chromed brake calipers/levers, bent axles, and overall rust, proved too much for me to tolerate.
    The only saving grace: it was bikes like these that taught me what to look for in genuine quality bikes, and for that alone I continue to be grateful!

    I had an amf cherokee when I was a teen. I was amazed at the condition. Then I read it just came out of the box. I rem when mine came out of the box. I can not tell you the year but my best guess is around 77-79.used to use this bike to ride me to the arcades.mine was purchased at scott afb, il and my best friend had an amf scorcher.it rarely failed me mechanical-wise and would ride it out many miles out of town.my rear tire was wobbly from the get-go but fixed it with a spoke tightener.
