Look Ma, No Hands!
Hello everyone!

I am hoping that someone here has more knowledge on this bicycle than we currently do. Any knowledge on the bicycle's history would be very helpful to us.

Circa 1929-G?
I forget when Westfield discontinued the reinforcement band joints at the seat tube mast, for the truss tube; 1931-J?
I have seen 1930-H and earlier models with; and later 1932-K models without.
I have also seen a 1930-H Westfield built Hawthorne with the 5-ovals chain ring sprocket (former Acme Stormer style).

So, we see a 90+ years old bicycle, perhaps owned by 6 individuals x for 15 years each?
History?!—I am kind of reminded of a statistic(?) that a person may be unlikely to ever meet (yet alone know) one’s own 3rd or 4th cousin.
