Introduced in 1936, but not called the Oriole until 1937, this was a mid range bicycle for Sears, offering good styling and some deluxe features. It was never offered with a horn tank. This bicycle features aluminum fenders and a 2 speed New Departure hub which was not original to the bike, and was not offered by Sears. Rather, sears offered a very unique 2-speed hub that had a long shift handle placed right be hind the rear seat. A rather dangerous setup! The handlebars on this bike are also not original. It should have cross-braced scout bars.
