Well alright guy’s! I got the bike!!!
I’m really happy with this purchase. I got a good deal on it also! The bike is in absolutely amazing condition. After a good cleaning it’s gonna look awesome! You can tell someone rode the bike quite a bit by looking at the wear on the pedals but it was very well taken care of. Completely original with exception of tires. From what I can tell from the serial number it looks to be a 1950.

Cool! That’s a great bike to have on the work stand. What are you going to use for tires?

Not sure yet. Hadn’t thought that far yet.
Still recovering from that new bike thrill,..LOL!
I have a few sets of whitewall Carlisle Lightning Darts. Not sure though. Do you know what came originally on these?

I put new tires on a bike I’m going to ride, that way I can put 40psi and have a smoother ride, I’ve been using Duro tires lately. But I’ve seen royal chain, Firestone, lightning dart, and a few others, I’ll have to dig through my monark book for ads, I can’t get to it right now, still.
Riding around regularly on old tires I cannot do. eBay http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-5...0001&campid=5335809022&icep_item=254176488570

I like the Duro tires as well but may I suggest putting something in white walls or even gum walls on this ? I have bought a set of the beach bums for my girlfriend's Giant & they ride nice, quite less friction/rolling resistance & other than a modern motorcycle look seem to be Goood to Gooo @ 35-45 psi (don't see the need to be higher) in 26x2.125 "balloner" fashion

Also the Columbia Superbs seem fairly nice IF you don't mind the script & the Slick style. I have a set for a Columbia but haven't rode them yet

A bike like this deserves a really nice set of vintage tires. Not modern slicks with billboard advertising. Time and a place for that. Not this Monark!
Respectfully understood but the set I have doesn't have the beach bum logo in a stupid stand out billboard
