Am making a possibly-erroneous call by stating this DAYTON is a Shelby-Built. The fork, while being made by Davis for application on a DAYTON machine ... sports a truss-rod system that is quite Shelby in origin and can be detached from that fork, entirely. In addition .. the crankcase stampings while still being presented in the traditional Davis manner, that is, stamped parallel ( and close ) to the edge of the crankcase opening ....... are now seen as being more centrally located. Circa post 1923.
Someone appears to have changed out a bunch of parts on my Davis to update it at some point, so I've been trying to get it back to the original look using the Rex picture for inspiration. Found fenders this week, and the bars and stem recently too. More modern wheels so I can take her for a spin. Still working on determining the year, and need to get the correct chain ring and seat topper.
