Vintage 1941 Hawthorne Comet Rat Rod Tank Ballooner Bicycle

Vintage 1941 Hawthorne Comet Rat Rod Tank Ballooner Bicycle

16th April 1941 (No Comments)

This old 1941 Hawthorne Comet Cruiser Bike has seen some serious action, acquiring paint, scratches, scrapes, scars and when I found this beast I knew it was a 911 Lux Low call to bring her back to life. The Comet was one of Ward’s Hawthorne Upper Line Bikes and this particular one was made by H.P. Snyder “aka Rollfast” for Wards Department Stores. As a Ugly Collectible bike, some would fully restore this find, but a Patina Distress Restore would accent its beauty and tell the story of the bikes extensive use and life. She is totally rebuilt, ready for the open road, and she will get there in style. For this 1941 Comet the beauty may be in the eye of beholder is she a swan or ugly duckling or just plain cool. 

 The Heart of this Bike is a well used 1941 Hawthorne Comet, which we gave a Lux Low Distress Patina restore to bring out original and added paint it had acquired through the years. With most all original parts she got a Mechanical Resuscitation, so she looks bad and rides smooth. Bike has a Comet embossed tank, truss fork, Gothic fenders, chainguard, and Rare rack. This is a Full size mens bike with Rebuilt original drop center rims laced to New Departure Coaster Brake Hub. The Tires are new Goodyear pattern 26″x2.125″ Ballooner blackwall tires. The Seat is a Raw Troxel Pan and is Surprisingly comfortable with it’s contour. Bike had some front and tail lights that I am working on with high efficiency leds, but bike is being sold as shown and if I get those added this will be updated. She a Bad Ride that will definitely turn heads when you roll by.
