This bike was another lost cause when I dragged it home. A plane-Jane Hawthorne covered in house paint. I found a tank for it for thirty bucks and this is how it turned out. Today I took the old boy out and it rides nice!

No, top pics 3 gill (curved bar) and bottom is a straight bar, prewar vs. postwar, skiptooth vs. reg. different fork etc. oh well, I know how they all blend together.

Not the correct photo . The bike was originally red. It hit me tonight. I will find and post it, as I have a photo of it somewhere.
