Description

Chicago manufactured by Monark and sold through Montgomery-Wards under the Hawthorne label. This streamlined beauty was built with 24" wheels not for the benefit for the shorter rider but to enhance a lower and longer look. This aluminum bike was equipped with stainless steel fenders, and was sold without the necessity of paint. A steering lock is built into the head-tube, also a stubby leaf spring is located behind the bottom bracket that in union with the generously curved seat stays gives one function, albeit limited travel rear suspension. If all of that wasn't enough, it also has a streamlined saddle with integrated toolbox, combination horn/headlight with four "D" cell size battery tube, cast alum stem with integrated Clipper speedometer, and streamlined tear drop pedals. Bike is all original.
