Here's my newest bike. I have been trying to buy this Huffman for the last 5 years. It was in a bicycle shops back room, hanging from the ceiling. My friend and I make a road trip there once or twice a year to check out all the cool stuff . Unknown to me my friend Mike had a plan to make sure I got the Huffman this trip. What a great friend. The deal was made and the bike was handed to me. Mike told me,, hey, that bike is NOS. Really ? It had no marks from where the wheels were bolted on. It had never had a chain guard, nor had there been a chain on it. The shop owner told us that years ago he had bought out a old shop and found the frame, then as he dug the other parts turned up. I have not identified the model or year yet. What I find interesting is the Huffman name tag on the seat down tube. It has reflective sides with a screw on the back side of the frame. The paint has some scratches here and there, but is in very good shape. I have three other Huffmans as they are my favorite brand, though I love all bikes. The bike has a little damage on the crank housing like it had suffered a drop and this might be the reason it was parted years ago.
