This...this IS VERY VALUABLE to me and my research efforts to restore a rare 1960 Dayton. This is only the second ad I have seen for 60's era Dayton bicycles. This is very rare literature. Do you have any for 1960? I at least know now what the guard looked like!

I wish I did. The man I bought this from said his dad had a hardware store and this was among the catalogs at the store. I'm guessing W. & H. was a wholesale company, so there's probably more out there from other years, but finding them is going to take luck.

Good luck with your Dayton!

Thank you! Because of this post, I have confidence that I have determined the tank I need to find for my bike. The only questions remaining now is if the electric tail light option was also available in 1960, as it was in 1961. I'm hoping it was, because I have a spare lens to use up. Other question is if this bike could be had with only a horn in the tank, not a horn and light both.

I bet they may have been, especially with "Custom Built Dayton" being the main marketing theme here. My bike also has a 3-speed that appears to be original. I don't see a "standard" Dayton with a 3-speed in this ad.
