Not all Huffy-branded English lightweights were downmarket. Carlton Cycles (Worksop) shipped over their mid range racing bikes (like the Catalina etc) to the USA in the mid to late 1960s and they were branded as Huffys. This was just before Raleigh North America started getting the higher end Carltons badged as Raleighs.
