History
In 1887, 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. Although Huffy dabbled in the high-end of the market, they never overcame their entry-level reputation.
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.
Bicycles sold under the Huffy name are now made in China.
