You could be the proud owner of this vintage blue and grey Montgomery Ward Hawthorne ladies bicycle. This steel ladies bicycle was handmade in the U.S.A. in 1949. Hawthorne Bicycle was distributed by Montgomery Ward from 1934-1960 through their stores and catalog sales. These bikes were mainly produced by the Cleveland Welding Company. This bicycle features a tank that requires 2 D cell batteries to power the horn, a dual spring saddle, spring absorbing front end, front and rear fenders, a rear light that is built into the rear rack, turn signals in the rear rack as well as a brake light. This bicycle is looking for a new home, and it could be yours.


Bicycle has some chips in paint, we are currently unaware of the working condition of the lights, they may just need bulbs? 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.
