Hey guys and gals! I bought this bike about 4 months back and am finally doing something with it. I found it at an antique shop and stole the thing for a hefty $10! It was a complete bike. Anyway today I stripped it down the best I could in order to get it into a rider with a few parts. I plan to keep it as original as possible by clearing over the patina as well as using the wheels (could be dangerous lol), sprocket, and stem.
While I am confident that it is Pre-war I do not claim to know much about these and am wondering if anyone has any better idea to a more exact year and or what model this is. Here is what I have found.
Serial number reads: H04024
Has New Departure Model D hubs (obviously these may or may not be original)
Skip tooth setup with the heart sprocket
Just for fun the tubes are from "Clayton Supreme" which I have never heard of.
Anyway, I know I may not get an exact year or model but any info is greatly appreciated!
