Posted by: Cherie Willis TITLE: AGE / VALUE: Monark Silver King
I just got a Monark Silver King. How do I find out the year? There is no serial number any where on the bike. It appears to be mid to late 50~s. Also is this the Swedish bicycle Company?

The Monark bicycles were made in Chicago, IL. Not the Monark, Swedish motorcycles. The Monark bicycle company was on Grand ave. in Chicago. They produced their brands of Silver King as well as house brands for Mongomery Wards and Firestone. Should be a serial number stamped near the left rear axle mount or a plate underneath the crank housing. George S.
