The 20-inch wheel models were made using one-inch,
non-lugged tubing .. or 7/8'', lugged.
Your machine is likely an Elgin Junior .. as it has a
chubby-spoked chainring and a fork crown that is
identical to the non-truss H-D fork. That fork was
relegated to jobber machines .. from the few that
I have seen.
All Davis-Badged juvies (including the H-D) had single-
plate fork crowns.
The Davis juvi line .. 20'' thru 26'' were not serial num-
bered. They also were not pinstriped.
Am showing some pics of my 20'' Davis-Built .. which
had badge holes filled with debris ... when cleared of
all the dirt, the badge holes line up with the H-D badge.
Correct fenders for these tiny rides have the very flat rain-gutter cross section. The 1''- tubed, 20'' H-D,
museum specimen sports very-wrong fenders.
Included here are some snaps of oldnut's (Ron) model
519, one-hundred % original, 26'' wheel H-D .. used to
The non-camelback specimens .. like yours or mine are
the most seldom seen.
Happy New Year ....
Who sez these li'l machines aren't the bee's knees ?!!
Wow!....talking about totally out of left field!.....I didn’t realize it’s a Davis made bike or even thought it was a Davis made bike...... I’ve been looking at this bike for 15yrs I even threw it out at a swap one time and then changed my mind.... ha...Ha....thank you for your insight.... now I it looks different for me. I have fenders that can be made for it....that’s when I get to it.. :0
