Wore out three sets of tires already!
I stopped by my local bike shop today and he had brought this bike down form his upstairs storage. Asked him what it was and he didn’t know. It has an interesting chain ring. It has New Departure hubs. The wood rims were shot so he bought new wood wheels in 1964 and relaced them. He put the original tires back on it. The badge is gone but the holes are horizontal. Any information on what it might be would be appreciated.

Fairly plain diamond frame with nice ribbed forks and a 4-sweetheart chain ring sprocket often associated with HP Snyder.
I would try to see if a Rollfast or better yet, a Hawthorne head badge might fit?

Not sure if EC Simmons used badges with the horizontal fastening holes.

Thinking like in the Pace Picante salsa commercials? The original poster indicates an Illinois location, just like Montgomery Ward, (versus NY City!).

The saddle looks replica, I've seen similar made in Alameda, California.

Great knowledge on Snyder. Is the Hawthorne badge preferred due to diff in prestige of store brand, scarcity, design, or other? Just curious. Thx
