Hi Folks,

I have just acquired a Dayton Cycles Flyer, rescued from abandonment at the side of the road. Never having heard of the marque before, I wonder if any one can shed any light on its history. It has Bayliss Wiley hubs and GB Sport brakes, which I presume are original . The rims, unfortunately, have been jumped upon (a common pass time for ou r local ne'er do wells). The most interesting detail in my opinion is the ' amalgam' frame construction where the main tubes are flared out into a flan ge and directly brazed onto the head tube, bottom bracket shell.
