You could be the proud owner of this vintage blue Wards Hawthorne 2 speed ladies lightweight bicycle. This steel bicycle was made in the U.S.A. in 1942. Hawthorne Bicycle was distributed by Montgomery Ward from 1934-1960 through their stores and catalog sales. The bikes were mainly produced by the Cleveland Welding Company. Whether you're an avid collector, or just want a beautiful bicycle, this is the bicycle for you.


The bicycle has some scratches in the paint here and there, and the chrome appears to be flaking off the rims in a few spots. This bicycle had one previous owner to us. This bicycle appears to be rideable, but we would recommend a tune up or safety check over by a qualified mechanic before riding.

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