    The frame with the drop out facing back is a Davis (sold it) the front one sitting side ways is also a Davis (sold to Slick) next one back is a Racycle (sold) and the 3rd is a '36 Huffman built pop bottle head badge Dayton (keeper)

    I had to take a doubletake before I saw who posted up the picture of my Davis in that first photo with the lonely rear fender behind it. Thanks Simpleman! I still need a front fender for it if somebody has one. Please let me know. I'd like to make this a rider before next summer hopefully. I have what I believe is an Indian chainring and I think I have the Davis fork for it now. Unless it's an Iver Johnson fork? I'll try and get some photos up tomorrow of my pile of parts that are coming together.
