Here's the BIG PICTURE of what I have gathered from YOUR recent entries ...
Excelsior Manuf. Co. received the machinery and tooling to manufacture
bicycles, from the Davis Factory .. AND .. Shelby Manuf. Co. received the
bicycle and frame components and raw tubing and so on, from Davis.
Patric, I more took it as Excelsior bought bicycle manufacturing equipment from Huffman not Davis. I'd like to know how much the Huffman's were involved with Davis by 1922, it at all. What I gathered from the articles is that Huffman incorporated a company that was thought to be a new bicycle manufacture in July of 1922 the the following month sells off its bicycle manufacturing equipment to Excelsior. But I was always under the assumption that Huffman made and sold bicycle components until the mid 1930s when they started producing complete bicycles again. Strange for sure, but very, very interesting.
