1975 Swing Bike Blue, right out of the box NOS ridden
just once. This is a great bike to ride
once you get the hand of it. It really
turns heads as you swivel up and down
the street. I have another one Yellow
that I use for my rider and it is also
in great condition.

1953 Hiawatha Original paint. Pedals are repro (I believe). Tires are replacements. I have the serial number, and am still looking for the year, however it is undoubtedly manufactured by Cleveland Welding, and has identical
features of the 1953 boys Hawthorne found in the picture database. Terry

and a 24 x 1 3/4 tire on the rear. Both brakes are mounted on the back wheel. This bike was
retailed by Sears in the 69/70 time frame. The red shifter handle is wrong, it should be a
white plastic "T" shaped piece.

1931 - 1940 Ingo

(Click for full photo)

1931 - 1940 Ingo This update on Ingo bikes from Tim Brockett,

Ingo bikes were produced in 1936 and 1937 only, after
which the manufacturing components were destroyed and the factory
retooled for the war effort. One of my friends is "Ingo Mary," world's
foremost historian of the Ingo bike. She obtained her information
directly from the bike's inventor. The patent for the Ingo bike also
supports the fact they weren't produced before 1936.

For identification purposes, the difference between '36 and '37 is the
standing board. On 1936 models, the standing board extends along either
side of the rear wheel. On 1937 models, the standing board terminates
directly in front of the rear wheel.

If you are ever in need of replacement standing boards, I produce
replicas of this part ('36 model only and without the rubber mat). I
may be reached by email.
