This bicycle, made by the Huffman Mfg, Co., is the version that was sold through Firestone dealers and was called the “Fleetwood Supreme”. It has been re-badged as a Dayton, and beautifully restored in red and black. The original paint scheme that this bike would have come with when it was sold new as a Firestone, was not as flamboyant as the Dayton version, so many of these Firestones (the most common version) have been re-badged as Daytons. To see an example of a Firestone in it’s original paint scheme, click here. How do we know it was a Firestone originally? The rear frame tubing that reaches to the back of the fender were straight on the Firestone, but curved on the Dayton, and they also had a different chain guard. Original Dayton frames and chain-guards are much more scarce than the Firestone versions. Click here to see a real Dayton “Super Streamline”, with it’s correct frame and chain guard.
