  1. Huffy

    The Huffy Corporation is an American importer and manufacturer of inexpensive mass-market bicycles. It has its roots in 1887 when George P. Huffman purchased the Davis Sewing Machine Company and moved its factory to Dayton, Ohio. They made their first bicycle in 1892. In 1924, George's son, Horace M. Huffman, Sr., founded the Huffman Manufacturing Company. From then until 1949, Huffy continued to manufacture and sell bicycles under the "Dayton" brand. During the 1930s, Huffy participated in the revival of the American cycling industry, during which Horace Huffman commented on a "change of attitude". Although Huffy dabbled in the high-end of the market, they never overcame their entry-level reputation. During the 1980s, many Huffy Aeros were purchased only for the Shimano Dura-Ace AX gruppo on it, stripped, and then scrapped. In 2004, Huffy sold its Huffy Sports division to Russell Corporation. Huffy Sports manufactures sporting goods, including the Hydra-Rib basketball systems used by the NBA. By 2006, Huffy had sold more than 100 million bicycles. Bicycle sold under the Huffy name are now made in China.
