BALLOON:   Looking for maker of this Cleveland bike posted by: Djunkman on 12/15/2007 at 6:58:40 PM
Got this one with no history. Badge says "Halle Bros. Cleveland, Ohio" with "Falcon". Halle was a Cleve. deptmartment store long gone after 1982. Bike seems to be around mid 1930's and has a sweetheart skip sprocket like a Schwinn but nothing else looks Schwinn. First thought Cleve. Welding with head light but tank kinda looks like Colson (Elyria, OH)? Plans are to keep original paint and restore mechanical parts only. Please advise if anyone is familiar with this bike and any ideas of value? Thanks

It's a 1939/40 Monark bike. Not a Monark sprocket though. Nice bike. Marc

Thanks for the info. I never talked to the elderly Guy I got the bike from (his kids just dumped his collection) but he did have some later model Monark parts, I never figured that was his brand. I sure appreciate advice and should make part hunting easier. Thanks, Junkman

Are you sure thats a Schwinn? I have a few Cleveland Welding Company bikes (Roadmaster's & Hawthorne's) and a couple have very similar frames, sprocket and guard seem hawthorne also. Check out www.nostalgic.net for some great photo referances.

The seat has a schwinn name, but could have been added, and I thought the chain guard looked like a schwinn but no logo. I am not sure what make, I'll check photo gallery again.
Thanks
GaryD.

IMO the seat and handlebars are much later than the frame. Chainwheel looks Elgin or Iver Johnson; frame ca. 1935.

I've run across Elgin bikes with ND rear hubs and front hubs, finned front and rear, and combinations of both. I think they just used whatever was available.
