Posted by: craig TITLE: MISC: monark thunderbird?
i have an old cruiser with the name ~thunderbird~ on the chain guard; all other markings are worn off/ painted over. the rear carrier has a white stripe down the center, and what looks like a crown or two. it vaguely resembles an older monark thunderbird i~ve seen a picture of, but not exactly. is there a serial number on monarks somewhere? any ideas on age? if not a monark, other ideas? would love to find parts to restore it if i knew what it was! has an old 3-speed sturmey-archer hub on it now. thanks!

i have the same bicycle, but in a little better shape. mine has a tank in between the top two tubes with a built in head light out in front of the head tube. i am new to the vintage bicycle scene so i dont even know what year mine is. but it does have a monark emblem on each side of the tank. as well as the thunderbird on the chain gaurd. if u email me with your email i will send you some pictures of the bike. hope that helps -Ryan
