bud poe ... your Dayton does not have a Model-Year Numerical Stamping. It does have,
however, an extra set of three digits ... don't know what that means. Many Dayton rides
sport that single "D" in the area of the serial numbers. The Dayton Fork did not come as
Heavy-Duty or Standard-Duty ... just Non-Truss (like yours) and Truss (like ejlwheels).
Nice Dayton !!!
I've been away for 10 days and just found the recent additions to this fascinating thread - I really appreciate all the great info about Davis built bikes. I've attached some more pics of the '18 Napoleon and will be happy to provide anything else to inform the discussion.
