20 Schwinn Girls Bike
Monark Silver King
Manufactured by Monark Battery Company, Chicago, Illinois
This girl's bike features an aluminum frame in the streamlined style first introduced by the Arnold Schwinn Co. in 1934. A product of industrial design, streamlining was very popular in the 1930’s and 40’s for bicycles, and also for automobiles and household appliances. While a heavy machine at 42 pounds, the Silver King was about 20 pounds lighter than the average steel bicycle of similar design. This machine is equipped with the 24 x 2 ?” balloon tires that were introduced by Schwinn in 1936. It features a fender laced with cord to create a skirt guard, a motorcycle-style kickstand, and a Morrow coaster brake, and it sold new for $29.95. The first aluminum frame bicycle was the Lu-minum, built in 1893 by the St. Louis Refrigerator and Wooden Gutter Co. Monark reintroduced the aluminum frame in 1935 and by 1936 offered eight models.

she needs lots of work. This vintage Schwinn cruiser has been in pieces on my patio since last summer. I finally put it back together, took it for a test ride, and broke the rear axle into two pieces. Luckily, I somehow managed to get the rear axle to stay sturdy enough to ride, but it definitely needs a new rear axle/wheel. Its going to be hard to replace because it was an old kickback 2 speed...
the guys at the bike shop said it would be like 50 bucks for a new hub, and 20 for a new wheel. I don't think so. I'm going to try to "Frankenstein" a different wheel on the back...or just try to find a new axle. When I do, this bad boy is going to get a full makeover...just wait.
I posted a SOOC pic below to show just how homely it is.
yes, I know that it's a girls bike.
