Belknap
(2 items)

Hey everyone my name is Michael and I live in SC. I am 13 and have my own business restoring and fixing vintage bicycles.Me and a friend of mine ride around in his 45chevy and pick barns and etc. I have almost 45 bicycles at the moment; including jchiggins,schwinns,AMFs,Roadmasters,western flyers, etc. And of course I collect a few for myself like my 1940 Belknap and my 1948 Indian Scout.The one I have today is my 1941 Belknap.It is unrestored other then the wheels(painted) and the seat bottom.It has all the original parts.I just put a NOS set of Fisk Deluxe tires on it. The paint it in beautiful shape other then some pits. It rides better then any bike I own.You might think weighing 90 pounds it would be hard to pedal but with the skiptooth and large sprocket it is really easy, rides up hills like nothing.But anyways I found this bike in a small shed outside of Anderson SC I will post pics of some more bikes in my collection soon. Thank you

    13!? Wow, Im 42 and it sounds like you have a collection bigger than mine! I was googling "41 Belknap" and cam e across your thread.
    I have one I am restoring at the moment. I just took the tank to bare metal and pressed the few dents. Skim coat of filler then priming...
    You gotta find a tank, it makes the bike.
    Good luck little man...

    Blair and I were talking about this bike last night. It is the same as a Dayton, Huffman. Nice riding bikes.

    yes it was made by huffman for belknap hardware company rides like a dream suprisingly with the skip-tooth and large sprocket takes hills very easily, it is my favorite one in my collection

    I think this is similar to one of the bikes used in Forest Gump. Take a look at the scene when the bullies are chasing young Forest, and he breaks free of his braces.
