my kinda huffy--- I wish---not mine--no relation etc
| Another club bike! Very sweet.|
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. |
| NMA, Ebay # 6629856524 It's a sheet of decals for Raleigh Sports mid-60s I think.|
| 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!
| 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.
