This completely original Elgin Blackhawk exemplifies the styling trend of the time with it’s massive motorcycle size toolbox tank and low slung frame. The Blackhawk was manufactured by Westfield Manufacturing for sale by Sears between 1934 and 1936. The frame design was called the “Twinbar” and preceded the radically styled Twinbar of 1938-40. The bike changed very little between years. This bike features the unique “Elgin” pancake horn with flipper switch mounted to the handlebar. The original red seat is still on it! Notice the bulky steel clad wood rims made by Lobdel, and the original speedometer. Cool!
