Wow very cool! Thank you for the info and the fast response. It’s a pretty unique style. Looks like I’ve got quite a bit of reading to do!

This is probably the H.P. Snyder built version of the 5-Bar Hawthorne and it is not Monark built. All of the Monark built versions had the cradled crank hanger.

I forgot about that. Still a really collectible frame. Just easier to find the right fork for it

Ah good eye! I will take a closer look when I get back to the shop. I wouldn’t mind finding the correct springer to go on it. Who knows, I may eBay it but finding a fork might be more fun

That isn't a 5 bar Super Frame. Those have straight mid tube. Yours has the curved mid tube. That is the frame that is mixed up with the Super Frames a lot. It's the same frame (but different maker since the BB in integrated) that I used for my starsNbars build. AWESOME frames. They'll take a wide tire and wheel too.

it's the Snyder, I mentioned the cradled bottom bracket on the Monarks and could have mentioned the CWC rear triangle differentiation. Thanks for backing me up bro

!.Monark built: cradled bottom bracket always
2. CWC built: curved chainstays always
3. Snyder built: lacks the characteristics of !. and 2. yet has five bars

I just wanted to make that "crystal clear" for posterity. i had not finished my coffee nor had i put on my glasses yet when I looked at the photo
