Mine smells like a barnyard the cups were spinning around so the last owner just gave everything a glob of good god knows what kind of smelly grease tightened everything up and gave it a tack weld to hold it all together for good measure. Then said individual proceeded to jump canyons till the spring of '45 until it broke again I suppose...

The nature of the back alley repairs and pattern of abuse suggest somewhat of a desperation and psychosis on the part of the original owner... Sound familliar?

It's probably some fault of Monark that they touted that it was the strongest frame ever built yet LOL!

If you say that then everyone's gonna try and break it!

Man!
Those bars are glowing compared to the typically as found patina of these HTB’s.
No mistaking those for anything but aluminum.
Nice find!
Congrats to the new owner.

I have started building out my Hawthorne Twin Bar (5 bar) for the Rat Rod Bikes Build Off #9. The build name is starsNbars and it will have a custom made sandwiched girder springer fork.

Man that is one cool build. The ladies tank and the kickstand were awesome. Lots of thought and work must have went into the suspension and light and really the whole bike.

Yeah, the other catalog copy from the 37/38 Fall/Winter catalog was so blurry, that you couldn't read it.
I made sure to get a nice clear picture of this one, for future reference.
The ad in the Fall/Winter catalog appears to show the bike with a standard torpedo light mounted on the fender, but then shows what looks like the "fat" torpedo in the specification detail.
The text is so fuzzy, that you can't read it clearly, which I think led to the confusion over which light was correct for the first generation model.
The only original bike I've seen with its light intact, was the standard type Delta Torpedo with the single post fender mount.
Iv seen the fat torpedo on CWC Models . Only in pics tho . If only Hmmmmm
