Posted by: Tyson TITLE: MIDDLEWEIGHT: Schwinn/Huffy Frame Comparison
Hey all! New here and I have some questions about a Huffy frame I recently acquired. First off its a male bike and I believe it to be from the early 60~s. Something like a Comet (with cat eye tank) or Huffy Good Vibrations style frame. Well, I~m doing a custom job on the bike and would like to add a tank to give the bike some weight visually. I~ve been eyeing those Schwinn Phantom Repros I keep seeing everywhere because it seems to me that this tank would fit perfectly on the frame (because it seems from what I~ve seen that this Huffy frame is almost the same as the Schwinn. What does everyone think??

Hmm...I~m still almost tempted to try it. Does anyone have the dimensions to the inner area of the Schwinns where the tank would fit? Also, the tube diameters would be great also.

It won~t work because Huffy~s curved bars are narrow compared to Schwinn~s bars; I had a Huffy beach cruiser from ~82 that I hoped to Phantomized but when I discovered the tank wouldn~t fit, I said, ~Back to the Schwinns!~
