I love to pick and found this bike. I don't know what it is and have had it in my barn for some years now. If anyone can help, I would sure appreciate it. I bought it because I thought the white fender skirt (or whatever you would call it) was very cool.

    Looks like a CWC built Rollfast or Hawthorne. Pre-War too.

    I'd say RoadMaster...Another Cleveland Welding Company bicycle.

    Its a 47 Hawthorne. Looks complete and should fetch 200-250...

    No, this is NOT a '47 Hawthorne. The fork monted healight bracket is correct for that year. However, the frame (to me) looks older, probably pre-war.

    I actually got a Rollfast (except it was a DP Harris built) with a very similar frame like that and parted it out. I believe it was a 1934 model. Anywho-try http://www.thecabe.com I know of a CWC expert there that could help you more than I could.

    Thanks very much for the info. I will go to the website and see what they say. It must be a weird bike due to the varying opinions. I like weird! Thanks again!
