1938 Huffman Built, Airflyte Twin-Flex – “Death Bike”

This is the actual “Deathbike”. There have been several stories as to how this bike earned it’s name and who named it. To the best of our knowledge this bike was so named because it was recalled by Huffman which led Firestone to turn to Colson as a bicycle supplier. This was a financial disaster for Huffman who had been the sole supplier for Firestone up to this time. This is the only example of the “Deathbike” known to exist. Notice the suspension that is at the base of the forks.
