I've recently picked up a 'beach cruiser' frame from a local free-add site. It was claimed to be a Huffy, however I can't seem to verify this (I've emailed Huffy and I'm awaiting their response, and in case it's not a Huffy I've posted here).

Frame Number is GH98142-- (Dashes represent last two escaped numbers), it looks like this: this.

Pretty generic, but there are odd-looking lugs on the BB shell, and on both sides of the rear dropouts that someone might recognize. – Daniel R Hicks Apr 24 '13 at 18:03
I'm thinking the stuff on the left of the rear dropout is for a coaster brake. Right side maybe for a cable for internal hub gears? – freiheit Apr 24 '13 at 23:07

Huffy isn't one of those bike companies that has a "nice" well-organized** history, especially in light of its more-recent history: So if it is a Huffy, no one at the company will likely be able to confirm it. Additionally, these weren't very (at all?) sought-after bikes so there won't be a user-group maintaining a serial number database (like some high-end brands).

** meaning not bought/sold/rebranded/in-name-only

It looks a lot like my Dyno Beach Cruiser. Actually, I'm positive it is.

Welcome to Bicycles SE. We're looking for answers with more detail. Please consider expanding your answer to explain what specifically makes you think this is a Dyno. While I'm not an expert in beach cruisers, the overall shape and design is fairly common to beach cruisers. A short, one-line answer like this is likely to get downvoted, flagged for moderator intervention, and possibly deleted. – jimirings Oct 13 at 22:07
The rear dropouts look very different to me. – JHCL Oct 17 at 1:03
