36' monark S K
Late 40's or early 50's Monark Silver King. Not the aluminum frame type. I got this from my buddy Judd (Diabolical_Dork) builder of the killer trike Schwinndian (RRBO7) I think it originally had a springer on it, but has been replaced. It has the blacked out New Departure hubs, Western Auto, Kansas City, Mo. blackwall tires in really good shape. Got the red tank from Pappy for my CWC, but discovered it fit this frame better. I have a repop springer to put on it & an old ratty trainlight that may end up on the front fender. Has a really cool odometer on the front axle (782 miles on it, wonder how many times it's been turned over!). Not real fond of the seat, but it is comfortable!
Nice find pick! Even has the odometer on the front hub!! :mrgreen: I've been looking for one of those in 26"...my LBS only had 27" :roll: What roadie wants that old technology :lol:
