I came across a Dayton Huffman and I'm trying to find out a more about it. My main question is about the "paperboy" mentions. I can't really find any info on that whatsoever.


"This is the special paperboy's bike with heavy spokes, big hubs and all the heavy duty stuff. It has the cool, original neck and handlebars too.

It has it's original and rare "Peaked" fenders and original truss rods.

It's a 26 inch single speed, coaster brake Mens / Boys cruiser style bike."

Serial says 1959. Probably make a good rider but just not much value in these as collector bikes. V/r Shawn

I thought that too when I first saw the chain ring but that fork crown and frame looks much later than '49. A little out of my area being this late but maybe someone else will chime in and confirm either way. V/r Shawn

The biggest 'tell' here is that the frame is cantilevered. Schwinn created and patented the design, and apparently had 20 year exclusivity on it. So, by 1959, every co. had them.
