Vintage 1934 Monarch Motorbike Bicycle made by Pope / Columbia / Westfield Manufacturing. This Motor Bike was one of the first fat tire cruiser bikes, boasting a smooth soft balloon tire ride, and motorcycle styling. Monarch Bicycles were out of Chicago, Illinois, appearing in the the 1890s bicycle boom, then into the 1900s. My Best Guess is that Monarch joined the ” ABC” Bicycle trust to survive the bicycle economic down turn and then became the property of Pope Manufacturing. This is a much later Pope / Columbia / Westfield produced bike bearing the Monarch name. This Monarch is a Wonderful Early Ballooner Bike. Monarch not to be confused with Monark ( Monark also has extensive bike history with some highly sought after prewar bikes and poorly constructed post war bikes.)
