So apparently you needed to have rust goggles on to see this because it sat there most of the day before I saw it and even when I showed it to people after I bought it it didn't seem to register as to what it was with them either. Just looking for any and all information I can find on this bike. Nicer examples or catalog pictures would be great thanks.

Nice score, i had one once and the badge read Huffman LAfrance on it. Same frame style and everything! I will try to find a pic of it for you!

Huffman used three different Fork Crowns in 1937.

>>> Earliest was ''Pinch Shoulder''.

>>> Followed by the Center-Peak ''Puptent'' (the most infre-
......quently used of all).


>>> Last was the ''Airfoil-Type'' ... looked like a cross-
......section of a wing.


You are very fortunate @bikewhorder .....
