This Vintage Dayton Bicycle was made in late 1938 – 1939 by Huffman Manufacturing who also manufactured Bicycles with Labels like Firestone, National, Air Flight, and La France. This Bicycle was Cutting Edge at its time having Deluxe Dual Cushioning, Boasting that it was the Most Important Development Since the Coaster Brake. This 1939 model Twin Flex Bicycle replaced the 1938 model ( The Death Bike ) which was recalled because of it’s Design Flaws, and only a Few are Known in Existence. Huffman Retooled the Twin Flex and released the 1939 Model that was for sale in the later half of 1938. This Particular Twin Flex was Made in the First Month of Production in 1939, which is defined by the Straight Sloping Bottom Tube that was made for the First Month, Then appeared as a S-curve, Sloping Down Tube After the First Month of production. The Twin Flex, although Advanced, were prone to problems if heavily used, thus Limiting the number of Twin Flexes Existing Today to a very Small Handful. Twin Flexes are one of the Highest Sought after Rare Antique Bicycles. Huffman Mfg. had a lot riding on the Twin Flex Design and the Twin Flex was only manufactured for a Few years. The Bike Brought Rough times to Huffman with manyDesign Flaws. Huffman Boasted Quality Not Quantity, and how Ironic because Huffman later becomes the bicycle brand Huffy. Huffman / Huffy was a a large part of American bicycle history and Huffy was the Last Major Manufactured bicycle made in USA. The Twin Flex Is a Rare Incredible bicycle with a Really Unique History, adding Value and Beauty to any Antique bicycle Collection.
