    New member, please help with my yard sale Hawthorne find

    Hello everyone! I have been looking for a vintage bike for a while now, and stumbled upon one at a yard sale this weekend. Can you believe it was only $5? There is a picture attached. It is a Hawthorne, which I have found some information about re: Montgomery Ward, etc. I am hoping someone can help me determine the exact model and year. I would like to do some of the easier work myself, if possible. I know nothing about resto jobs & bikes but I am quick learner. Thanks in advance! I am so glad I found this forum.

    Hello writersblockgkp,

    Is that a three speed? If so, check the rear hub. You may find a two digit year code there. It will at least give you a starting point.
