'Lil Knee Scuffer
I recently acquired this bike as a very partial trade for hauling a tractor down to LA for a guy. He told me his dad was born in the 1910’s and bought this bike brand new as a teenager. Other than that he had no other info to offer me. And so far I haven’t been able to find much else on my own. Hoping folks here can help me determine it’s likely age and also if it’d be worth my time fixing. Or just leaving it and riding it as the relic it is. Only number I’ve seen stamped anywhere on the frame is a lone 0 on the bottom bracket.

From a distance, the top of the bottom bracket crank hanger kind of looks to have joints that are characteristic to Snyder mfg.?

But the chain ring front sprocket clearly reads, Tonday?

And the ribbed front forks do look peculiar.

Walthour and Hood were an old distributor based out of Atlanta, and they seemed to work closely with Huffy. They even re-introduced an exclusive "Dayton" line of bicycles in the early '60's. I'm guessing an early Dayton/Huffman, and it looks like it's in very nice shape. But there are people on here that know more about these bikes than I do, I'd like to hear what they say. @Freqman1

HeavyChevy can you please post some more close up pictures.
The badge is definitely replaced.
I like the Wald accessory fender brace feature on the front fork.
Sweet bicycle, thank you for posting!
 
With that Dayton chain ring you would automatically assume Davis built. A better pic of the fork showing the 'rib'? A better pic of dropouts and stay bridges would be useful.
 
Thanks for all the replies so far! I'll definitely post some more pics when I get home from work tonight. Any other specific angles/shots I should get?
