You could be the proud owner of this vintage ladies Wards Hawthorne Bicycle. We are the second owner of this bicycle; it was purchased new in 1936 at Montgomery Wards in South Dakota for this woman's 9th birthday. It was then passed down to her daughter, and is still in good enough shape to be passed down a few more times! Bicycle features a dual spring saddle, front and rear color matched fenders and comfy cruiser bars. This bicycle is looking for a new home, and it could be yours.


This bike is in good shape for its age. The paint has some scratches and chips but would clean up nicely. The chrome is rusty and pitted. Missing rear drop stand. Nothing has been done to this bicycle and we would recommend a full tune up before riding.

This bicycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
