Thanks for the info. That was my guess too. I had seen another that was similar that claimed to be a 44. I was hesitant to look in the military serial numbers because I was not sure if this was a military bike. Not sure how to tell.

I have have had this bike for quite a while and it took me a few years to find that it might be a Huffman. Which is quite ironic, because my last name is Huffman!! Just got some s-6 tires and have it back on the road after a long sit.

Thanks again

Just took a look at the back of my fork per the info in the link about military bikes. The code appears to be 84. This would make it an August of 1944 bike if I understand the code correctly

By the way, would anyone happen to have axle nuts for the front new departure hub on this bike? One of mine is stripped and I would rather not rethread the axle.

Hi,

yes, that would mean the forks were made August 44, so the bike would be assembled a short time after. At that time they were turning them out due to the war effort, so I would think assembled before the end of 44.

The Military bikes were all one model (not this one), and if you'd like to read more, this is a CABE member's website on them.

http://www.theliberator.be/militarybicycles.htm

The bb were also dated directly (1943, etc), which civilian bikes weren't. There are examples on that website.

Although yours is not military, it was made for the war effort, saving fuel, rubber, glass and steel. I think that the bikes themselves at this point were special purchase. If you needed one, you had to apply and justify it, they couldn't just be bought off the shelf. So it is special for that.

Best Regards,

Adrian

Thanks for the info. My father is a ww2 vet, so it’s pretty neat to own one.
