The Huffy Radio Bike – With AM Radio!

Share this:

CONTINUING Anorak’s look a bicycles and cycling, we bring you the 1955 Huffy Radio Bike. The bike contained an AM radio.

Boys Life: “Not a toy. Powerful radio has lock, sensitive tuner, volume control, clear-tone speaker. The bike’s a beauty; streamlined design, gearshift, new easy-pedal tires.”

The radio is in the body. It uses vacuum tubes. The batteries are on the back.

Wowzer!
