According to Phil's list, that one dates to the end of 1951. In 1952 they started using the "52Cw" mark.
With the spring fork, it was probably one of the high-end models, maybe a Super, but a lot of the extra parts have been stripped off, which was pretty common.

Can someone please make a chart or send me the info so I can make one for the CWC serial #'s?
If I've overlooked the info in this thread or somewhere else, please let me know where?
thanks!

Same thing here, times x 2, now that there are twice as many pages(!).
I have politely requested that the moderators append the thread title to also read, “(see post # 576)” to go directly to the chart, and bypassing much of the clutter.

I live for the CABE
I thought I would add this model to your database along with getting some information on what I inherited. The bike looks to be postwar with the B53649 CW serial number putting it somewhere around 1948 according to the chart. This model has the horn in the tank and the dual springer fork. Hope this helps fill in some gaps. Any ideas on what model this might be?

1947.

Here are some photos of my assembled Wards Hawthorne SN D96872. There is another mark on the crank housing. It looks like Roman numeral II (2) or the number 11. If this info and the photos help in determining the year, I would be very interested in knowing that information.

if it is a factor, my grandfather owned the bike when he lived in Northern Alberta in the 1940’s.

Thanks for the help.

Your grandpa’s nice Hawthorne looks like a 1939-D; (the chart hints at about April for the higher 90,000 serial number).

The other marks look like some kind of chiseling to break the bike out of the ice and snow, eh?
