Posted by: Lacy TITLE: AGE / VALUE:   What is this bike?!
I bought this Hawthorne today because I just like the way it looks. I cannot figure out ANYTHING about it..I am most interested in the year but any information would be helpful.
The serial number is E373040. Also the model would be great...
I dont care much about the value as I dont think it has any value... If you need more pics just let me know.

Can you pleeeease help me? Thanks so much

Hawthorne was a Montgomery Ward~s house brand. They may not have given the model a name; if you can track down scans of a catalog from about 62, as one of us said recently, you~ll be the expert, and can let us know what you learn. Hard to see detail, but it gives me a hint of Murray. I~d like to see more pictures. Early 60s, anyway. Closeups of the chainwheel and the rear dropout would help determine the maker. Compare the chainwheel with one on a Flightliner. If it matches, search the archives here for Murray-built.
Is that a bolt-on dual headlight? Or is it part of the headset?
I agree it~s probably not valuable, but it has some interest, doesn~t it?
