    Mark ... those li'l twenty-inchers look plenty cool
    without any fenders ...

    I like the look of a Daytonia on a tiny Davis a bit
    more than Elgin Junior ... purely opinion.

    zephyrblau ... well that sure looks like a Davis-Built.

    There are four main marques in the Davis line ...

    Dayton ...
    with a ''lettered'' Dayton chainring.
    Yale ... with a ''lettered'' Yale chainring.
    National ...
    with four circles like a shamrock.
    Snell ... with 6-tapered spokes (and 6 drive-
    pin hole).
