Wouldn't normally buy a Huffy, but I couldn't pass this cute old made in england huffy by. Can anyone tell me who would have made a clubman style for Huffy in early 60s? The man who sold it to me said he bought it new in about 1963 or 1964. I suspect the Raleigh, but who knows? Anyway, its got three speed rear brake Sturmey hub and, surprisingly, a twist shift mounted on the right drop (marked L, N, H, which makes one wonder what N stood for). It has a front hand brake lever on the left side of the drop. No fenders, but it does have a chain guard. A red and white plastic seat. A tube sticker says: Genuine English Lightweight. No, I doubt we're talking anything but gas pipe here. Still, the drops are delightfully skinny and narrow in that old fashioned look. It is dark red in color. And just generally charming.
