Since there seem to be a few members here with these bikes, I thought I'd start a thread specifically for these strange & unique frames. I myself have 2, though one has been sold & on it's way out my garage very soon. Please feel free to post pics,info,ads,scans etc about these awesome bikes. Thanks!

Another one that has since changed hands & been parted. Pics from Nick's for sale thread a while back.

After servicing, some Flitz, wax, new tires & a better condition carrier in matching paint, here she is. Swapped out the delicate Streamline seat as not to further damage it. Hands down the smoothest, most comfortable rider I currently have on the road.

My Hawthorne badged version, formerly owned by Nick, (his ebay pic in fact), possibly the parted out one.

Here is my Hawthorne 5 bar. I've taken it apart and started the polishing process. It looks the paint is gonna shine pretty nicely once I'm done.

If anybody has one of these 9-hole racks in original blue paint, I'd be an interested buyer. All my searching suggests the same carrier was used on the Snyder 5-bars as well and I have me one.
