Posted by: Djunkman TITLE: BALLOON:   Looking for maker of this Cleveland bike
Got this one with no history. Badge says "Halle Bros. Cleveland, Ohio" with "Falcon". Halle was a Cleve. deptmartment store long gone after 1982. Bike seems to be around mid 1930~s and has a sweetheart skip sprocket like a Schwinn but nothing else looks Schwinn. First thought Cleve. Welding with head light but tank kinda looks like Colson (Elyria, OH)? Plans are to keep original paint and restore mechanical parts only. Please advise if anyone is familiar with this bike and any ideas of value? Thanks

Thanks for the info. I never talked to the elderly Guy I got the bike from (his kids just dumped his collection) but he did have some later model Monark parts, I never figured that was his brand. I sure appreciate advice and should make part hunting easier. Thanks, Junkman
