There was a thread on this last year. Try searching “U-haul bike.” The chain guard is obviously off another bike, I suspect the wheels may be as well. Neat piece.
Thank you. I see there was a similar bike. Definitely a chain guard off of a completely different style. I would like to sell it as I have no use and currently renovating. I had no idea something I passed by for years down there is rare. I am not sure how much I should sell for, etc.

Some features resemble the "Good Vibrations" beach cruiser model made by Huffy.
But it is a different model, looking to have upgrade features, such as 3-speed hub, and caliper brake.

<edit> The additional pictures show that the frame and other parts are more refined than a Huffy from that era; for example, no weld splatter, and the tapered rear fork. More likely a Taiwanese make. The 1" seat tube and seat reminded me of a Huffy I once had.

Yeah, as others mentioned I had one last year. U-haul was in the bike rental business only a few years in the late 1970s, early 80s. I sold mine on eBay, it went to Scottsdale, AZ where a U-haul corporate employee was going to ride it/display it. Good luck with it!

well, if you were in the Dallas Texas area, I would give you 75 to 100 for it, simply because I think it has a cool factor to it.

Alas, as cool as it is, I wouldn't pay for shipping, unless you sold it for 10.00, then I could justify shipping it.

FYI, I do not recall the exact final hammer price but I believe I got $550 plus shipping for mine, roughly. Throw it on eBay if you want top dollar but be prepared to ship...
