Finished the Fantasia! And since it is mostly pink and purple with some white sprinkled in, I call it the Rarity Pie. A cross between the ponies Rarity and Pinky Pie. And if there really was a pony with that name, oh I can only imagine the insanity that would ensue..lol.
So I dug this old bike out of my attic yesterday, and now I've decided I'm going to rebuild it.
Only problem being, I don't know any of it's past history, and lo and behold, there is a scant amount of info available on vintage Huffy bikes, unless it's a boy's and it's a BMX bike. Grr, so on with the search. The only thing I know for sure, is that my brother picked it off a trash pile when we were kids, and now I've decided to bring it back to life. I've gotten a couple serial numbers off the frame, so maybe more digging will turn up new resources.
In the mean time, I've figured out it's not a My Little Pony bike as I had once hoped (I'm a Brony for those of you who don't know), but that's ok. The banana seat has a fading unicorn on it, and that's just fine with me. I plan on tracking down all the MLP bike accessories I can. It will be a MLP bike, or at least my version of one, by the end of summer. But in any case, the paint job, fenders, and aforementioned unicorn, remind me of Rarity from MLP:FiM, so the bike will be called Rarity. Let the work begin!
Just found a random pic on a site, and this is a Huffy Fantasia, and according to the serial number, it was built on Feb. 21, 1980. Score +1 for the interwebs!
