Hiawatha Ballooner Skip Tooth- Is 1949-ish about right for this one?
Normally I try to take good quality daytime photos for you guys, but I wanted to share this with you so badly that I just can't wait. It's late, dark, and stormy....
I fell in love w/ this the minute that I saw it and to me it is painfully cool. I especailly like the primitive stabilizer bars on the front fork. (I will be using it every Wed evening for this: http://www.denvercruisers.com/ride.html
I have only been working on it for about 2 hours and have barely had a chance to wipe it down.
Although some of the features look pre-war to me, the grips and stem look more like late 40's/early 50's so I'm stumped on what the year may be. The front fender also looks like it was drilled at the factory for a headlight. I do not see a serial # anywhere....
