So i rescued a huffy from the garbage the other day and built it up as a fixie. The mechanic there looked at it and said he had an old huffy rear wheel that was, as he put it, "an ORIGINAL disc brake." He said there was a photo in the new Quality catalog of a bike like this. Anyone seen a bike like this or seen the photo in the QBP catalog? Any info would be helpful, as i think he's going to sell the wheel to me, but doesn't have the brake mechanism.
Yes, I remember themAlexx

And, as one would expect with a Huffy, they really were a piece of junk, too. What was it, early 80's? Shortly after the "freewheel BB" finally bit the dust, if I remember?
FWIW, it's only value is as a a curiosity. I doubt you could find a working mechanism anymore.
