    I can't tell you the model, but it's worth almost as much as the innertubes in that schwinn speedster you got hiding in the back. :)

    If the seat is a kashimax, that's the only part worth anything.

    Low grade dept. store bmx.

    Handlebars and seat lead me to think it is more than a Department store bike does that sticker on the seat tube indicate it is USA made?

    Another theory is that it was assembled after Stu left the Huffy team and they continued to build the same basic bike using up all of the parts they had in inventory without the "Huffy Racing" stickers? Really good post on the BMX Museum site by Stu himself talking about the Huffy bikes and the racing contract he had with them.
