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!

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.

Here is mine. It is the frame from Post #2.
I plan to use my frame for the Rat Rod Bikes Build Off #9 this Summer.

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.
