Huffy lawn mowers[edit]

That's right...Huffy once manufactured lawn mowers. There is no mention of this in the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.19.77.161 (talk) 12:04, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Needs Work[edit]

The article could be improved.... The first sentence indicates "American" in present tense, but a later sentence in the same section refers to "made in China". The "Early history" section skips the early years 1887-1948, and instead starts with a post-war history. Perhaps much of the history in the un-titled introductory section should be moved into a history section (less the "early" adjective). Suggest moving most of the "Modern Era" information into the history section (less the subjective "modern" adjective). Suggest a new section for the bankruptcy and Chinese ownership, perhaps titled, "current era". The introductory paragraph might be reduced to a couple of sentences that refer to present Chinese company, and also to the historic American bicycle company (in past tense); it is not what it was. The paragraph on particular models (1962-1971) might be reduced, or better included in a mere list of bicycle models. The history might include more information on bicycles made for sale by others (e.g., Western Auto) and the purchase of Monark-Silver King (1958). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.183.224.2 (talk) 20:25, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
