    What about the bowed stays? Wasn't that a CWC thing?

    Monark is easy to tell, down tubes go under the BB. But on @Nickinator bike those seat and chain stays say CWC to me. I could be wrong though.

    So was this one restore wrong then? Cause it appears to have a curved rear cross brace but it has a CWC fork.

    Is the only factor the curved cross brace that you are basing this on? Im not trying to argue with anyone here, just trying to learn

    Pic of the crusty bike looks like the tubes go under the bottom bracket. That'd be monark. And straight chain/seat stays.

    To me the crusty bike doesn't appear to run under the BB.

    It's just so weird to me to have all these CWC frame qualities like the curved seat post like the RMS and then the 5 bars have the bowed seat and chain stays and they just happen to be equipped with a CWC fork but it's not a CWC.

    We really need to see some serial numbers if we want to put this CWC vs Snyder thing to rest;)

    So the only difference in the synder and the CWC is the curved or straight cross brace?

    See, the problem is we're taking this poor Cabe'rs thread off on a tangent about a completely different frame. I'm going to start another thread about the "Non-Monark" Hawthorne Twin Bars where can compare those bikes. These two bikes you posted above are not the same bike bairdco is building up.
