The bike to have in the eighties, E.T. I think helped them out a bit.

my first bike was a pink huffy, with those sparkly streamer things hanging off the handles and a basket which later on got thrown away cause it wasnt cool enough :)

I finally had to put down my purple 18 speed original grip shift Huffy a couple of weeks ago. I'd bent the frame and the brakes finally gave out... It was heartbreaking!

I had a purple Huffy with white tires and a banana seat!! There was also a very cute flowered basket attached to the front, and I believe, purple and white streamers on the handlebars. I upgraded it with some after-market accesories like the very necessary bike horn and Spokey Dokeys shaped like flowers, LOL.

My first bike was a red/white Huffy Pro Thunder with red California Lite pads. My best friend across the street had a black/gold Pro Lightning that kicked my bikes butt as far as weight. Then again, it didn't take much considering mine weighed like 50 pounds.

Man...I remember my pink/purple huffy!! It had this cool zipper pouch in the front, and a water bottle that matched. I would load up on snacks and be riding for hours, that was back when kids actually went outside to play.

I tolerated Huffy bikes because my parents couldn't afford a mongoose or a gt. Terrible bikes though, I'm surprised they're still in business.

Does anyone remember the Huffy Bahama bike? I remember the commercial - "who's that girl?" and the guys were looking at her from over the fence riding her huffy Bahama - Man I wanted to be her, but that bike was too expensive! ha ha :)

I had a Huffy 3000 dirt bike. A notch above the 2000 but not quite as good as the 4000. I jumped that bike until all the bearings were shot.

I had a Huffy 3000 as well. I remember I won $100 from playing a "Find the Captain" game with Cap' Crunch cereal, and I used the cash to buy the bike. That was right around '85 I'd guess. I think the 3000 had gold-outlined letters, and the 4000 had silver (or maybe it was the other way around).

Don't laugh... I still have the Huffy Sweet Style bike, purple with pink tires - 10 speed racer. The first bike I ever bought with my own money. I still use it too!

I had a huffy. It was beige w/ a red bandana patterned banana seat. I loved it.

Started off life on a Huffy Thunder Road...y'know? All black with thin red and orange pinstripes around the number plates, thick loaf of bread seat (they called it "saddlebag seat", knobby tires...just baaaad! Great commercials on saturday morning cartoons to wet the appetite and trigger the nagging!

The huffy I had was my first bike. I think it cost around $49.95 or something. It took a lot of convincing to get my parents to buy me it. I think this was when I first turned 8 or 9. I learned how to ride it by myself and it was still by far the most durable bike i've owned. I rode the heck out of it until the seat broke (3 years later!) I had a new expensive bike in middle school but I still chose to ride my huffy. Sadly, my dad threw it out or gave it away. I wish I kept it for the memories.

I had a Huffy White Heat...I still remember the commercial, it was to the tune of "We Will Rock You" by Queen, but it was "Huffy's got what's hot now... Huffy's got White Heat!"
Kevin - January 01, 2009 - Report this comment
Does anyone remember a Huffy from the late 70's that was all black with a gas tank, twist throttle that sounded like a motorcyle, a rear slick and sissy bar. I had one of these and am trying to find info on it. Thanks

I had the Huffy Color Waves...Lookie, lookie, you're one cool cookie on your huffy color waves! If I remember correctly it was a 10 speed with curved handlebars and it was greenish blue...

I had a Huffy Pro Lightning that was black & gold. The bottom tube and forks were tear shaped. I loved that bike. I think my parents paid $160 for it.
Zeke - February 15, 2009 - Report this comment
Before I got my new GT Performer in '86, I got a Chrome Huffy Pro Lightning for Christmas, '84. The teardrop tubing gave it a bit of a PK Ripper look, but in chrome. At the time I wasn't a Huffy fan, but looking back, that was one damn nice bike! Now I would cherish those 2 bikes equally...

I had a Huffy Pro Thunder 2 - yellow with blue pads, black tires & a black seat. It was an early model, I hung out with friends that all had Pro Thunders - a PT1 Burgundy another PT2 Yellow, a PT2 that was red and white a PT3 that was blue with orange, and a PT4 Black with mag wheels. You can say all you want about them being terrible bikes but we put these things through years off heavy abuse - never had problems. Lots of good times were had on our Pro Thunders.

I had a pink and white huffy bike that I won in the captain crunch contest. I remember waiting 6 weeks to get it and then my dad and mom spending the evening trying to figure out the istructions. I loved that bike and rode it everywhere...until my older sister left it behind my dads truck and he ran over it.....

I had a black and yellow huffy boy bike. I think it was called either the FX32 or MX32.
EC - May 15, 2010 - Report this comment
The one and only bike I've ever owned must have had an early 90's version of the huffy bahama bike. Exactly the same colors and design scheme with a light pink seat, but on a girls' fixed-gear bike frame. I absolutely LOVED those colors, and the triangles. lol. That bike definitely got a lot of good use.

I had the Huffy White Heat and it was (and still is to this day) my favorite possession EVER! I bought a new Raleigh last year that is white/grey with pink accents and realized that it is the Huffy White Heat for adults.

i grew up on huffy bikes and some older schwinns, not fortunate enough to have any stingrays in my youth,just some schwinn beater bikes.we would cut off hollow tube forks and hammer on to our flat fork schwinns to make choppers. say what you want about older huffy bikes, but guess what,i collect and restore vintage bikes and have a few huffy bikes from back in the day that are still solid and rideable.owner of a few thunder roads,sweet thunder,thunder star and newly aquired 2nd.gen. thunder road with plastic body panels.

I had a pink Sweet Thunder. I thought I was such a "hot shot".

I remember my first two huffy bikes. They were identical. An ugly mustard color with those long noodle shaped seats that hooked on to the nuts on the back tires. My dad would take us up to our friends and we would ride up and down the street in our so called 'gang'. It was like I was setting on the back of a harley!

i have a 1981 huffy pro lighting that's been kept in perfect condition and all original parts so email me at if you want pix.

I have a late 80's early 90's green Huffy Lowdown with the black velvet banana seat with the spring front forks. Trouble is I cannot find any information on it, I've kept it in great condition, the only thing wrong with it is the bottom of the seat is peeling in one section. If anyone remembers these bikes or knows where I can find out more info on it, please let me know, I'd appreciate it. Thanks..

I still have a Huffy 15 speed that's blue called "The Wind". My husband rides it now, since I still have my Schwinn Varsity 3 that I got for my 8th birthday. It's now a 21 speed. We love our vintage bikes, and wouldn't trade them for the world!!

There was an all blue boy's 20" bike that came out in the early 80's.I "think" it was a Huffy,but I may be wrong.It had blue tires and twisting hand grips,that changed the gears.I always wanted one of those bikes.I'd love to come across one.

I also won the Captain Crunch "Find LaFoot" Sweepstakes and loved my Huffy Pro Thunder bicycle with the #1 Captain Crunch number plate on the handlebars. Mine was stolen from our shed one night and I was devastated. Great memories!!!

Can anyone tell me about Huffy Challenger 2000 pro certified and what it may be worth in good condition?
Rob Lambert - August 22, 2017 - Report this comment
Huffy bicycles go way before the 1980s. Founded by the Huffman family in 1894, Dayton, Ohio. Huffy's Ohio-based competitor was AMF (Roadmaster) out of Cleveland. The only other non-Chicago major company was Columbia (Mass.). Prior to 1950, Huffy limited itself to the general Ohio-Valley area. Seldom advertised in print (comic books). Blue-chip bikers Schwinn and Columbia ads were in nearly every comic book (suitable for kids) after the second world war. Since 1990, Huffy bikes have been made overseas.
