I bought this bike for my wife but between health and other projects time to simplify a little..I bought a GREAT Monark for her from tech549 that didnt need much going through,so Im offering this rare COMPLETE bike up for sale.

I believe its a late 38/39 ,I have better/upgraded; crank/chainwheel,seat,and few other parts(I believe bars also)
BOTH headlights work,with the correct ever elusive fender bracket!:D
I unfortunately only have two photos of the uncleaned/untouched bike assembled,tomorrow I will take the parts out into the sunlight and take more pictures.
Ive posted the original photo sent to me when I bought the bike,the second picture is where most of it hangs this moment and Ive also posted an old photo (credit to cds2323 :sunglasses:)of an original bike back in the day


Asking $1000 complete shipped in the continental USA obo or POSSIBLE trade for +/-/= $$ ; decent silver age comic books, an original paint REDDISH/ORANGE light for my prewar Hawthorne;> https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/l...range-hawthorne-headlight.105912/#post-768847
Please feel free to message me here or email me directly at bikesnbuses@yahoo.com Thank you,Jeff

Ive found some of the "upgraded" parts ,just havent had a chance/help to get the bike down for "new" photos yet..
Here are some of the parts that now go with bike; upgraded NICER condition seat,crank set,ORIGINAL ladies Torrington Signal pedals for refurb/restore and NOS tail light ..
I AM sorry for the lack of pictures.. I plan on doing a partial reassemble on the bike (without fork, as it is in 8+ pieces right now)
Here are the upgraded uncleaned deluxe seat and crank. Thanks again everyone!
PS.. If anyone wants to do s cash local pick up, there will be a big discount

Now with assembled pictured AND a price drop..Now $800 shipped in the continental USA..
I assembled the bike today and gave it a minor cleaning. It needs a good scrub!
In my opinion the bike had more chipped paint than I remembered..:rolleyes:
So I'm dropping the bike $200..the front fender has dents from the lights,although the fenders ARE thin and the dents seem to push out fairly easy.the headlight bezels are dented also..fix or swap out?
I replaced the original stem and bars with ones with better chrome.I have original stem,but no chrome finish left on it if you would like it I will gladly send it along.
I will be posting more pictures and info shortly.thank you,jeff


Here are some new pictures

Thank you for your patience everyone..

The wheels are uncleaned,the front is a nicer original..I didnt have a nicer rear though.
It was missing a drop stand bolt,I had a non-stepped replacement bolt that looks identical to the original,rust and all:laughing:
I DO have a Diamond chain for it,Im soaking it right now so I can clean it this weekend
Here are some more pictures..Thanks again!
