So would this be considered a barn or a field find? I like the hay wrapped around the front hub, actually looks like a pretty solid project. Where in ND are you located? Look forward to seeing your progress and welcome to the group.

Wondering about the chain I have the old one but has broken hopefully can repair but will a newer chain work on the old skip tooth? Any help would be awesome

Also the rear rim is shot I have the hub or internals of rim and are in good shape can I just put them in a different rear rim ? Does it have to be that old?

Get yourself a new old skiptooth chain. Howard just posted some up for sale in the parts section. Grab one up before they're gone.
As far as the rear wheel goes. You could save the hub and have it laced to a different rim with new or used spokes. You could use a different second hand wheel of the same size. Kind of dealers choice. Whatever's best for you. However you get it rolling. Looking good so far
Note. You just have to match the chain pitch front and back.

Did get this bike magnet fishing?
It's going take some work, but we know you'll do a great restoration.

No luck on rear rim so far will keep hunting I’m ready ready to touch up primer on tank. Did some miner dent repair . If everything goes well the old Hawthorne will have a fresh glossy red coat on it then later this week I’ll spray white accents on. I’ll update later once red . Use hi solids ployurathane safety red as one of my finish coats

Wow this is going to be one heck of a before and after. I'm surprised there isn't more rot on the tank. Seems you kinda lucked out there. If you repair the chain with a few extra skiptooth links and skiptooth master links you may find that it just needs replaced. You'll know right away once you ride it if it is stretched or if it just snaps on the first hill you climb. Even if it does it's nice to have extra lengths of chain and master links for future projects or issues. I'm sure you'll find a 26 inch rim laying around somewhere. Make sure the number of spoke holes match up with the hub. Another easier option is to find a modern coaster brake rear wheel and put an ichibike rear cog on it. These pop on with little effort but need to be filed down a bit on the teeth so that they don't chew up a skiptooth chain. This bike deserves a nice rack in my opinion - looks like the end of that one got broken off. Good luck and have fun. Happy hunting!
