    I have been looking at this but something doesn't look right. Reflectors on pedals, non-skip tooth ring... Any input as to the real age, were repops made for this bike?

    I posted this earlier in the wrong forum, sorry for the double post.

    Not prewar...50s probably a ballooner, definitely a Frankenbike. Frame tank and guard are hawthorne, fork is Monark, rack is Columbia.

    Thanks, I will be in that area this weekend and if it stays cheap enough I may pick it up. Not worth the normal three plus hour drive, but I will be about half an hour away.
