Huffy is the most iconic company in cycling, known by every child who ever grew up riding a bicycle in the last century. But very little is always known about what Huffy did in the 1980's, as they invested heavily in supporting professional U.S. cycling and developing cutting-edge race bikes.
In 1990, Fortune Magazine asked Lamborghini-lovers to limber up; here's your kind of bike. Huffy's custom-designed Triton will set serious tri-athletes or bulging businessmen back $8,000 to $10,000. Each bike is built from scratch by the same gang of technicians that constructs bicycles for U.S. Olympians.
In 1991, Mark Allen won his 3rd straight Ironman Triathlon using a Huffy Triton.
