    Been working on this project for awhile now and finally close to prepping for paint and plating. All steel no fiberglass. There's probably under 5 of these known. Very fun project...

    Nice! I know of two. One red which has been posted here and a blue one in a barn. What color are you going with?

    No ladies in that color scheme. Those painted parts belong to a friend.

    Mark,
    What year is that one? 37 or 38? Remarkable!

    I have been hunting one of those frames, and now I know why I haven't found one.

    Thanks, if I remember correctly the frame is a 38. It's been awhile since I looked at the serial #.

    WOW WOW---I have always had a deep affection for 20" ballooners. Have never seen one like this though. Can't wait to see it together.

    Appears to be exactly like two that I've seen on 1935 MW Hawthorne Aluminum bikes [girls]. A close friend and bicycle collector has one of those two MW's.
