I worked all day on it. I could not easily remove the badge so I took a picture inside the headtube. It looks like it had a bottle cap badge in its prior life.
I dig it. It rides awesome
The Morrow hub is dated fourth-quarter 1936 (F4)
Seat Tube measures 19"
The frame design screams roadster to me; and so it is.

Thats what I get for being too anxious to Ride.....

@jd56 can you edit the title to Huffman Velvet DeLuxe please.:cool:
Wished I could change the title but, using my only internet source, Tapatalk. I'm not given the moderate option.

Hey Dave S. or Scott McC., can you help me out on this one?

Mark, the bike is looking good and all my Daytons ride smoothly.

Hi,
I found this thread and had high hopes it was a real Velvet de Luxe, but it looks like it's not.

I'm attaching some pics of mine in case someone wants to take a stab at who might have made it.
It has an undated hub by Eclipse Machine Co. of Elmira, NY. No pic-my phone can't seem to take a usable photo of some thing round and shiny : (

Thanks
Pete

Cool bike and badge.
I'm not sure about the mfger on your bike.
It needs its own thread and looks to me to be pre 33 based on wheel size alone.
Take pics of frame characteristics: Rear Stays, bottom bracket, head tube and forks and Start a thread.
Here's another shot of my Velvet deLuxe because I love it.

Hi,
Before I start a new thread am I right that your bike was determined to be a Huffman, and the Velvet de Luxe badge added at some later date? Wouldn't want to add to the confusion by comparing to yours.
I've had no luck finding any info on Velvet de Luxe.

Just because it is a different manufacturer that deserves its own thread.
Thanks for posting.

I am glad @64 Pete posted his Velvet DeLuxe to see what this bikes badge came from.
Thanks for that too.
