Huffy “Regatta” – women’s 3 speed bicycle

This Huffy was built in Dayton, Ohio, USA probably in the 70’s. I was surprised with the mint condition of the bicycle. The owner, young waitress in espresso bar told me that she found it in her parents home. Unfortunately shortly after I took this photographs, the bicycle was stolen from her.

    Oh no! I hope she gets it back! I love the grips on this thing, and that overhead shot of the bars is great.

    American-built three speeds just have a certain look about them- I’d term it “lanky”. I can’t say I really like them alot, but they are growing on me.

    Beautiful bike, that :) Shame about the theft :(

    Shame it was stolen…FWIW based on several I have worked on, I would date it into the 80’s. One way to tell is by a date stamp on the inside of the rim (have to take the tire off) Huffy didn’t stop building bikes in the US completely until 1999…one of the last to leave.

    Two days ago I purchased a bike like this in very good condition with only two scratches and a small but noticible dent. The bike is a girl’s model Regatta and I paid $25. I don’t know if its worth it but I sure like it. As stated above, it is a smooth ride. The shifter is very precise. I appreciate the information about determining the manufacture date. As time permits in the next few days, I’ll look into finding when it was built.

    Purchased a Huffy Highlander 3 last week. Everything works. Very good condition. Apparently not ridden much by previous owner(s). Registration sticker from 1977. It will become my daily market bike. Love it.
