When he goes to lock up his bike I am sure he feels better with those Huffy stickers guarding his bike.
I think it's cool.desmo

Reverse snobology. But I always wanted a Paramount painted metalflake green with Varsity decals.

Serotta made the 7-11 team bikes in 1986. The were badged as Huffys. That bike is beautiful

Still- to pay money to replicate the frame... it goes a bit far?

I would take that bike in a minute. Teams mostly outfitted them with Dura Ace is my recollection so the Record is interesting - but gorgeous bike!!!

I rode for the Dayton Cycling Club, sponsored by Huffy, in the late '80s & early '90s.

Mike Melton did indeed build custom steel frames for the 7-11 team (not ALL of those were Serottas, boys), and they were incredibly nice. I had one. It said "Huffy" on it because that's what it was. It was an elegant ride.
Too many cheap, clumsy, lead-framed connotations for meCrankist

No snobbery at all. I too just think the branding is a dumb idea.
That is a sweet frame, the retro paint is ultimate...rwbadley

I'd snap it up in a heartbeat if the size was right and the price possible.

Mavic 1010 is a long time guru on the Serota board. I'm sorry he has to sell his baby if it is a reluctant sale.
