    My most recent purchase; 1938 Wards Hawthorne built by Cleveland Welding. Twin Silverays, like NOS Carlisle Lightnings, CWC locking fork.

    I am going to post my first build in another thread soon. I was looking for some rims for my 61 Schwinn American when I cam upon this Hawthorne.
    Turns out someone had put some Schwinn S2 rims w/ New Departure hubs. Here it is before I snatched the rims and fenders.
    Now I am going to have to find rims for this and build it!
    Can anyone ID mod/year? SN is E171868
    Thanks

    Nice looking bike! I like the lines of the frame. I'm gonna hazard a guess that it's mid-late 1960's...

    Agreed, that blue looks awesome and works really well with the natural rubber colored pedals. Have you tried a honey colored seat/grips?

    I'm not versed in Hawthornes and maybe the grips/seat are original or NOS, but I picked these up from eBay I thought they had a nice 'classic' look to them.

    These are nice mix of black and brown:

    In any case, your bike looks great!

    Bought this off CL for $110 a few weeks ago. Just bought some nice used w/w tires for it. It needs a seat (this one is for my 57 Western Flyer).

    Here is my Hawthorne, I do not know anything about it other than it has been repainted at some point. I have pieced this thing together in this last week, just need to shorten my chain and it should be ready to go. I am not happy with the seat but it will have to do until I find a better era correct one. The wheels are JC Higgins, the fork is from a CWC Roadmaster, and the bars and stem are from a Schwinn. Also, the coke bottle grips came off of a Roadmaster as well, not sure what the chain ring is off of.

    Nice! Looks like a CW made Hawthorne.

    Doesn't hold a candle to what's been posted but it is a Hawthorne.

    Twin top bar in process of becoming a rider again. Still need an adult sized seat and grips.
    Has some goofy light up pedals that work on 4C batteries each and a mercury switch. I'd sell em if anyone is interested.

    Haha, yeah i assumed that, it's just a bit small. That is what I meant by not knowing what it came off of.
