I posted a picture of the bikes serial number. Some ers have emailed me noting that the bicycle might be an early 1940s model rather than a 30s. I based the bikes age from what I was told when I accquired it. I am the third owner of this bike. The gentlemen I got it from accquired it from the original owner who used it regularly for many years. I am unsure of the exact date of manufacture and am not looking to mislead anyone. Thanks for your interest.

The bike has a welded kickstand which I am toldpositively dates the frame to 1940. This is the only year that Huffman welded kickstands to the frame. Thanks for everyone who has given me information on dating the bike.
