I recently bought this Dayton from the original owner's grandson. It was his grandfather's transportation to and from work. It is covered in dirt, oil, rust and bird &#!^. It lived in the attic of an old garage for decades. The frame design looks like the same used for military service. Original hubs were relaced to 26" rims. Likely because of tire availability. I see evidence of a brushed repaint in a Carmine color. Serial is in line with the chain and has a lone number 8 above 150. WOW, I'm stoked!

Hey, thanks for the interest in the ole Dayton. Cool bike for sure. I have spent more time ogling and researching then actually working on it. A few killer acquisitions have come my way since purchase so it has lingered in the garage waiting for a chance to be massaged back into shape. I sometimes play catch and release, so it may go away in the future.
