    '46 hiawatha

    I'm leaving the patina on the tank and chain guard...orange giving way to the original brown...which is giving way to some light rust. Semi-gloss clear coat to seal it all in and give it a bit of shine.

    hawthorne identity unknown

    Yes, but I can't find a reference of one that does not have the additional support bar. Also, I believe the tank has a missing piece that extends beyong the front that houses two lights. . .
