1936 Monark Silver King
Another shiny beauty from Monark.
This Silver King model M037 would have made you the envy of the neighborhood. The aluminum frame made this bike lighter than every other steel balloon tire bike. The stainless steel fenders stayed brilliantly bright, and even if they dented, they wouldn’t rust. It has a built-in Seiss headlight and horn (the extra tube on the frame houses the batteries), steering lock, rack, and a massive rear kickstand.
This bike was most likely saved from metal collection drives during World War II by virtue of it being still relatively new during the war, and having a protective owner. Surely junior would rather give up his left arm than his bike…
