As for me, huffman toast move along, keep preferred bits and pieces for build, sell remaining left overs enough to recoup cost or more.
If kid schwinn sprocket is 16t skiptooth I'd be interested. 👍

As someone who is solidly mediocre at brazing (haven't had a joint fail, but they aren't always beautiful), and not good at all at welding, I'd probably put my vote in for calling it on that Huffman too (those welds look worse than mine, and that's saying something!)

I say that because it looks as if during the repair, the whole rear triangle may have come off, and if so, it may not have gone back on square. I know that that is hypothetical, but once you throw in the mid-yube repair of a chain stay, it seems like you could spend a lot of time and energy repairing a frame that might break again on the 3rd ride. This constant breaking of the frame is what kept happening to my 1970's Swing bike that I bought off the CABE in the 90s as a 13 year old, also my motivation to figure out how to construct my own Frame, which has seen 50+ mph and is ugly, but very solid.

If you are curious to sell the whole blue stumpjumper frame, fork, hs, seatpost and maybe another bit or bob, I sent you a PM!

Sorry for the lapse buy family holidays took me away for a couple weeks. Finally got to the Hufman to see what I was dealing with. Needless to say this is beyond anything I want to take on at this point. Stripped for parts sadly done.

So it’s been a while with me kinda waiting for a deal to come through. Today was the day. The 24” frame is gone to a new home and in return I took possession of this 1965? Scwinn. Little bit of a start over but nonetheless here we fo again.

Wheelset was shot. The Bendix rear hub will be saved and rebuilt. Not much time to get at this one yet as I’ve got 3 other builds on the go🤷‍♂️. Can someone tell me if the chrome shoulder cap on the is removable?
Not sure what can be saved and what’s shot, time and some elbow grease will tell.

Not sure what direction I’ll gonna but this def gonna be black and chrome. The kick stand was cut and I’m not sure how I’ll get the stump out of the holder. Maybe I can drill the retaining pin out? Any advice would be appreciated.

Not sure if the drill bit would get stuck...might damage the housing too. Maybe drill and tap a hole in the cut off part, use a sleeve and a screw to pull the broken part like the tool would and remove the pin?
