I I missed taking a whole bike shot in the bright sun..here are two other shots..I'll pull it out and do more later..I think my dad might have replaced the handle bars since, even with a kick stand, we used to flop it down loaded with papers - and ruin bars.. - I thought there was a basket on the back - but he might have taken that off.. I am going to look for that..

Thanks for the replies - I will put some air in the tires and get it to someone who will do some happy riding - and I will probably find more bike "bits and pieces" as I continue through the layers of life accumulations for my father. So kind of everyone to reply..

Here is what I think is the serial number that said Hawthorne - even though most told me to look by pedal - this was back wheel. I have learned a lot from everyone - keep up the passion. 1210143

Besides using bikes for paper routes and getting around in the 60's and 70's, my dad rented apartments to college students... they inevitably took off in the spring leaving MANY things behind that wouldn't fit in their cars - including the clunker bikes they used to get to and from classes on campus...so I am sure I will find more as my Dad helping duties continue...

Where are you located in our great state? I'm a native currently living in Longmont. There are several old bike enthusiasts I can spread the word if your looking for a new home for this. If you're on facebook, check out the Old Bikes Club. A lot of great people.

If you decided to keep it and want to get it riding nice, I would be happy to lend you a hand if you're close.

I finally found the "EH" # on the crack housing It is pretty faint and double struck The first number only has part of a line at a slight angle could have been a 4 or a 7 , second number is defiantly a 5 and then EH. From what I read this style was sold from 1958 to 1970. So what I am thinking is that the first number is a 7 making it being built in 1957, but sold as a 1958 model does this sound correct? I'll post pictures when I can get them off my phone.
The serial # is C18 11 80 and found on the drop out.

Very likely a '57 built '58 model. Otherwise, D would be '62, wouldn't have a BB code though.

A = 1959 ~ G = 1965
B = 1960 ~ H = 1966
C = 1961 ~ I = 1967
D = 1962 ~ J = 1968
E = 1963 ~ K = 1969
F = 1964
