REPLACEMENT COST OF A HUFFY

Back to questions
Im trying to find information
on a bike I purchased in July of 2005. It is a blue/silver
Huffy Tundra, model #76524C MT 05D. It was destroyed by
a group of individuals who were staying at the hotel I work
at during my shift, and Im trying to get a proper
estimate of the damages.
I bought it from WalMart, and I
cant find any old catalogs anywhere, to prove how
much I paid for it. Do you know were one could acquire such
If Huffy printed catalogs theyd
probably have gone bankrupt a few years sooner than they
did. But Ive other ideas that might work.
To get reimbursed for your bike
you can come up with two kinds of figures: repair cost and
replacement cost. You might find repair cost easier to get,
and maybe would result in more cash. Simply bring your bike
to a bike shop and ask them to give you a written estimate
of the work itd take to get the bike into good shape.
Given that you have an, um, inexpensive model, itll
probably cost lots more to fix the bike than replace it.
Lacking a receipt, for proof of
the bikes retail price you can use a note stating
the price, written by either the store or the manufacturer
on their letterhead. First try visiting the store at which
you bought the bike and explain your situation to a manager.
If that doesnt work call Huffy at 800/872-2453 and
make the same request, except you want a statement of the
suggested retail price.
