yeah yeah,great bike,super paint bah blah....................how about an 1890s bike already..............get some wood....wood!Thanks!
This frame is lugged and has "HD" looking chain adjusters...Not sure though about the other issues. I suppose HD could've had some pretty specific designs that they wanted their bicycles to have to set them apart from the rest?
I do have another Davis built Victor that is not lugged but of the same era so I was kind of wondering the same thing....
I wouldn't go so far as me not believing... just having a difficult time believing. Especially since Davis was coming up short on the government orders for bikes. "Sorry Uncle Sam, the troops will have to do without the bikes you ordered, we are busy building bikes to be marketed to Boy Scouts and kids in general... General."...or something along those lines.CHRIS (chitown) ... after re-reading your most-recent post .. i have concluded that you do not believe that Davis
was making all those fork and frame variations, at a time when Davis was swimming in government contracts to
fabricate munitions to support the war effort (WWI). i find it difficult to believe, also.
