    know about old huffy sportsmans?

    I just picked up an older bike at a thrift store. It says its a huffy sportsman (looks like a cruiser) and apears to be somewhat old (It has stickers of approval from the bicycle manufacturing association). I was wondering if anybody knew when these bikes were produced or anything else about them. Also on the right handle it has the letters L N H and it seems that those may refer to different gears (?) but I'm not sure. Any info would be appreciated, thanks!

    It could be a Raleigh-built Huffy from the early '60s.

    Yes, built by Raleigh for only a couple years in the early 1960s. You'll find a 2-digit date code on the rear hub.

    It sounds like it has a Sturmey-Archer Twist Grip 3-speed shifter.

    Look on the rear hub. It probably says "Sturmey ARcher" and some other stuff. If you see a two digit number like "65" that means it was made in 1965.
