Wore out three sets of tires already!
Yes nice clean frame fork and wheels -- as sated above for missing parts fenders are almost always missing due to well meaning previous collectors who Chang out the very thin SS originals enjoy it the way it is or if your like me change every sows ear into a silk purse LOL

I've worked on many/own a couple. They are a cool bike and a historical design. It has lots of good going for it. Easier and less costly in the paint area/polish instead of paint. There are quite a few parts around, especially with the Cabe. Good score!

Fell off my 26X
Looks like a 1936 Hawthorne badged Monark Silverking, with straight trusses! Does it have a quill seat post or binder clamp under the seat? Pic of the seat off would help. Great start to a great bike!! Tons of potential for a nice resto or cool rat cruiser!!! Enjoy the ride...
