AGE / VALUE:   Mohawk Muscle Bike posted by: Mike on 3/5/2008 at 1:58:59 PM

I was wondering if anyone could help me find out a history or any info on a bike I came across. It is a muscle bike with the name Mohawk on the chain guard. It has a head badge that reads it was made in New York by Snyder Bike. Feaures include 5 speed stick shift,Ape hanger handle bars. coppertone paint and a black banana seat with a white strap. I am looking for any info I can get. It is in very good shape (rider) a ball park value would be great. I can't find any info anywhere.
Thanks, Mike

Mike, most of the Mohawk bikes were manufactured by Rollfast. Even though they are not very common bikes, they are not that much in demand (compared to Screamers, Krates, Rails, Slingshots etc.). Top value for a 20x20 3 or 5 speed in C-7+ would probably be $250-325 or so.

“The Apehanger”, quarterly newsletter of all things muscle-bike, is about to go into production. We’re putting together the first issue with the plan to distribute it (FOR FREE) at the Memory Lane and Ann Arbor shows at the end of April. If it is well-received, we’ll offer up options for everyone to get a yearly subscription at a very reasonable cost. The Apehanger will be focused on muscle-bikes, ALL muscle-bikes, regardless of brand. The collecting community already has an outstanding, all-purpose newsletter, but we feel that a more focused newsletter to serve collectors of muscle-bikes might be nice to have as well. Some things you can expect to see inside “The Apehanger” might be….
- Articles on various brands’ dating systems, paint colors, options, etc…
- Muscle Bike of the Quarter (with a prize for the selectee)
- Collector profile articles – learn about others in the hobby
- Informational data on models
- Classifieds
- Photos

We are looking for contributing writers and photographers at this time. If you’ve got an idea for an article, or would just like to send one in, we’d love to publish it. We’re also accepting nominations for The “Muscle Bike of the Quarter”. Nominations can be submitted via email (at the end of this posting) and need to include the following minimum information (Owner’s Name, Brand, Model, Year, Manufacturer and at least two nice digital pictures showing the entire bike). Additional information, such as date of purchase, description of options and/or accessories on the bike, story of the life or purchase of the bike, etc.. would also be nice. Classified ads will also be accepted with the following restrictions/guidelines:
- Subscribers may place 2 ads per issue, each add must not exceed 125 characters (spaces count) in length (FOR THE FIRST ISSUE, EVERYONE IS CONSIDERED A SUBSCRIBER)
- Non-subscribers may place up to 2 ads per issue, at a cost of $5.00 each, also not to exceed 125 characters (spaces count) in length (FOR THE FIRST ISSUE, EVERYONE IS CONSIDERED A SUBSCRIBER)
- Larger ads will be available, rates are yet to be determined
The only reason to limit the number of ads is to insure we can get them into an issue as the amount of pages of the newsletter will be a limiting factor. If more space is available, we’ll post that availability on our web page (, which will be up and running soon. The web page will also have lots of general information. At this time we’re still examining the possibility of delivering the newsletter via email rather than, or in addition to, hard-copy and would be interested in your opinions on that. Thanks to everyone in advance for your interest and opinions and we look forward to putting out a useful and fun newsletter. Please send all responses to:

AGE / VALUE:   Huffy "Trophy" Cheater Slick posted by: Bill on 2/24/2008 at 8:53:29 PM
I picked up this nice green Huffy "Trophy C.S." (Cheater Slick) recently. I'm having a tough time finding out much about it - so I have a couple of questions. The guy I got it from handed me the pad on the sissy bar seperately - is it original equipment? Also, the tires look to be original, any thoughts? I have no idea how to figure out what year this bike was made, I am guessing '68 or '69, but I am just basing this on it's general look. Any ideas?

Thats a BIG MONEY bike, and it looks all original to me from the pic u posted.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Huffy posted by Bill on 2/25/2008 at 5:11:37 PM
Big Money? Any guess as to value? Am I correct on the age of the bike?

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Huffy posted by Dave on 2/26/2008 at 7:42:51 PM
Check for a serial # on the rear part of the frame....when u find it there should be an "H" in it (HUFFY). Example H68 is 1968 made by Huffy.
Are you selling it? If so, im interested.

Dave - Go ahead and email me so that we can discuss. Bill

That's a late 69 or 70 maybe a even a 71. I had a 72 that did not have the long sissy and the hand break. Mine was a lower model with a bendix and cheater slick on the back. It sported a flourecent green paint job and also on the fenders. Black rally stripes on the green fenders.
