    I just bought a Huffman with a badge that says SHOOTING STAR. The serial # is H019511. I've not seen a Huffman SHOOTING STAR but I am a newby. Have you? It's not prewar but I think it is before 1950. What is it missing? What is it worth? Thanks. Huffman Shooting Star.jpg Shooting Star front end.jpg Shooting Star Badge.jpg

    it's a 1950, and it's worth about what you paid for it. I watched it on ebay the several times it went through. super cool badge, pretty common bike. based on the frame I would have guessed 47, but if it truly is H0 then it's a 50.

    On closer inspection it appears that there is a 7 in front of the H. Does the 7 in front of the H have any significance?

    7 makes it a 47 as expected

    That's great news! Thank you so much. Once I receive delivery I will get to work on making it really special.

    When did Huffman switch their serial number location from the bottom bracket to the rear dropout? I've got a weird one. 1960(?) Dayton Speedster. The serial number is on the bottom bracket, but it doesn't resemble any previous numbers I've seen at all.

    That is a '40. The '41 didn't have the welded kickstand and 840 is Aug of '40. '41 also has a different rack. V/r Shawn

    Here are some pics of the 34 Dayton/Huffman. Hope this helps. I am planning to get a full i.d. and report from Leon Dixon.

    agreed, Leon's information will either be horribly outdated, or based on information gleaned here by cabe members such as Shawn, or John. I've added a little, but the heavy lifting has been done by them.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm sure I will be getting the best advice available from Cabe members. See Ya'll in the Projects section.
