I guess I should follow the good example set by Mr. Kilgariff and give refs to what I say---just lazy I guess. Anyway for the huffman time line http://www.huffybikes.com/
Also part from the book"Classic American Bicycles" by Pridmore.
In a post by list member Chris I. a few weeks ago he showed an American Light/Weight bike he owns with English brakes. After looking back at the Adds I have on the Co-mo tubed Huffman they to came equiped with English brakes(look to be Philco or monitor but doesn't say)and also english freewheel.My point was that in the bicycle building world there seems to be a lot of shared infomation.
