MrMonark13

Wore out three sets of tires already!
A few days ago I saw an add of OfferUp. It simply said old monark bike. From the side, it looked ugly and I really didn’t want it. Then I scrolled through and saw a picture from the top, showing the 5 bar design. Fast forward to yesterday when my dad drove about half an hour to get the bike for me. I have been closely examining it and I have found that it has been repainted several times. My plan for now is to try to save the original paint and make the bike correct. I will need a lot of help on this as it is my first prewar monark. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

It's a great start already. I'm not familiar with these 5 bar Monarchs but it looks super cool. I think your plan to keep the original paint and everything is a great one. It should clean up real nice. Keep us posted!

Thanks! I plan to try to save the original paint. It will be pretty difficult given the layers of repaints.

Ah, yes. There are some good threads on here for removing the other layers. I think it's WD40 and 0000 steel wool? I haven't done this but I have seen some amazing results posted. Lots of elbow grease. Enjoy!
