Starting this to help ID bikes. This post will contain links to serial number datatbases, pictures and anything else that will help to ID your old bike. This will be a work in progress so PM me any info you have that may help. Most links will be for outside sites.

1. Find the serial number on the bike. Locations- under BB, dropouts, headtube, seatpost clamp.
Serial Number Databases

2. Look for a brand name on headbadge or chainguard. The brand name is not always the manufacture.
Manufacture/Brands

3. Sometime looking at pictures or catalogs may help.
Catalog and Picture Databases

4. Or look for characteristic on the bike to help find manufacture. Pics of dropouts, forks, badges, seat cluster
Bike frame characteristics
I cannot find any information that matches the numbers I find except possibly the h may tell that it’s 1958?

Looking for info on this bike. Maker and year, can't find a serial number on it. Bottom bracket is pretty rusty. Western Flyer badge which I know was CWC bikes but this one is different than the ones I have, frame wise, but the badge matches my '47. So I'm a little lost on this one.

Pretty sure it's a Huffman. I'm not sure when that land-speed graphic was used, but that's the key to dating it.

For your bike Old Stuff, H is 1958, AMF made in Arkansas. The graphics and pinstripes are an indicator of late 50's too. Going by the number, it was made in early 1958.
