And if memory serves me right, the chairman or president of Huffy at one time had pretty good taste. He owned an Herse Demontable. He said it was cheaper to buy the Herse than to have his own shop make a similar take apart bike.

Oh shucks - I'm sure it would have turned out fine.....maybe they could've polished up those Ashtabula cranks to give'm that Herse look.

Time to go, starting to feel sick.....
