Through the courtesy of several at this site I'm getting close to finding the bike I'm searching for for a short story I'm writing. It now appears to be a Monark (not Monarch) Holiday (Firestone). I'm not sure of what all that means (Sold only at Firestone dealers, Firestone tires??) Anyway I'd like to get really good close-up pictures of the bike, maybe a brochure if one exists. Need multiple views if someone has one and original cost and current value today. I mentioned earlier I only saw these in green (primary color) but now through Old Roads site, a side picture cues me that it had a "wood" trim painted on the tank. Also a close up of the medallion on the tank if anyone has one. Finally if anyone knows a history of this bike please advise a site. Thanks in advance.

I have a bike that I think is a Monark, (Monarch). Now I am completely doubting what I have. I can email you some pictures of what I have, maybe we can compare what you want with what I think is a Monarch or whatever. I am selling upwards of 100 vintage bicycles and am having a difficult time trying ot figure out what ther are. I'll share what I have.

Someone is selling a Monark on Ebay. Not sure what model it is.
