    40 or 41? Hawthorne, appears to be made by Rollfast. Paint is original, sort of metallic. Has what may be the original Wards Riverside Mate tires, front and rear. Front holds air, rear needs a tube. Everything spins freely. New Departure front and rear hubs.

    3 rib fender light is missing bezel and has a battery stuck in it. Squirt decals on the backs of the fenders.

    I did a light rub with a wet paper towel to get the dust off but this would clean up really nice with a little more effort.

    The light of heaven shineth upon this bike (see last pic)

    $550 shipped lower 48 states USA

    I own the springer version of this same bike, same exact color. The paint held up well on these frames and fenders, I think they were coated with something. The rims, racks, and guard seem to not be coated and got rusty. The label on the seat tube says something about this process if I remember correctly. Mine is a Snyder made '41.
