Driving down the road this bike caught my eye at an Antique Store



Why in the world did they paint it all red.??
While asking about the Red Hawthorne the owner said he had an old motorcycle seat in the back.










So is it motorcycle or bicycle? How old do you guess?

Best part is I bought it for pennies!!!!

An expert can give you a maker and approx. year on the bike seat. Yeah, the red is horrid. Sure looks like some pretty decent triple step rims and pedals, maybe good tires. Definitely a good bike. Sheesh, the things some folks do.

Went by today and they said Big Red wasn't for sale. It was for show out front to lure folks in.

Yea 90.00 way too high.
