Thank you in advance for your feedback.

I was given this Hawthorne Bike and I’m trying to decide if it is worth keeping and purchasing new tires, clean up, etc.

I used to build custom bikes as a kid and built some for my children to take to college ( lost a few of those ).

I’ve been looking for a similar model on line but haven’t found an exact match..

I have not located a serial number on the frame, no plates or stickers. Please advise where I should focus my efforts :) thank you.

That tank looks to be a 64/65 model. Everything else looks original to that time frame, even the tassles on the bars!
The chain wheel verifies that it is Snyder made. The serial number on the left rear dropout will give the year, Starting with A in 59 and going in order, B is 60, etc up to L in 1970. I'm guessing yours starts with an F or G, 64 or 65.
There's a Hawthorne group on FB that might be of interest to you.
