Adorable.

Huffy had quite a range of quality lightweights made for them including top notch Carltons in the mid to late 1960s.

But Huffy... it had zero boy bragging rights when I was a lad and we'd sneer at kids with such things. And I admit I still quite can't get over... well a "Huffy"!

I had never heard of Huffys until I moved to Dayton as a boy in 1959 (Schwinn was IT with my brother and role model). All the kids there had them (probably from the factory outlet). Even as a 5th grader they struck me as inferior to the English "racers" and Schwinns. I never saw one of the Huffy-branded English bikes until years later.

I asked the seller if pickup was ok; he said sure, but it's near LAX!! Too bad for me, maybe someone else? Still only $25...

I'd sure like to see this bike, it's already down , if anyone is still talking about it, did it have "drop bars" in you all talking about a "Club bike"? Is it blue or red? My buddy has a man and woman's bike, 3 speed, from about '62.

Best Regards!

ENGLISH ROADSTERS:   From England, but not sure if English posted by: Ann Piesen on 5/15/2006 at 2:22:53 AM
First off, I have to thank Sheldon for the great information he has accumulated and shared. When we bought our home, two bicycles were left in the basement. One I was readily able to identify (with Sheldon's help) as a 1951 Raleigh Sport. I had to sell it because neither my husband or I were big enough to ride it! Instead, I now ride a mint 1970 Raleigh small wheel.

My dilemma is the other cike. I am stumped on the other one, which I still have. It looks to a 1950's bike, but is labeled R 26, Hungary. It looks to have been purchased in Britain, but that it... If I could figure the maker I could perhaps figure out the rest!

Thank you:)

Don't get me wrong. Sheldon and the shop are very alive and kicking. But as for our merry little group here? Sheldon has "left the building" some time ago.

If anyone is interested - an old Sports model from just after the war. Sorry the site is so slow to load - it's an old beat up computer in my basement.

I have a mid 60's Raleigh sports 3 speed that I am fixing up some. Paint, etc. Does anyone know of an illustration, picture or some other reliable info regarding decal placement. Suggestion on replaceing the gold/black/white tapes on the standbar?
Thank you. Manny Brochu

Hi Manny,

Look at Lloyds Cycles website they have decals for most older cycles. Also Classic transfers are good helpful people.

Matthew - stick with it.
