1963 Montgomery Ward Hawthorne





Here's my 1963 Montgomery Ward Hawthorne, which was built by Hercules. By 1963, Hercules was owned by Raleigh, which means my bicycle probably rolled off the Raleigh assembly line in Nottingham, England.

I bought it for $40. I spent about $7 on spray paint and a couple bucks for the pinstripe stickers. Cheers .
