1939 Hiawatha Arrow

Deluxe Hiawatha Arrow, sold by Gambles department stores. Manufactured by Shelby, this bike is very similar to the Shelby branded Airflo model. The horn tank, which had the headlight built in wraps around the head tube for a streamline look. The carrier and chainguard both had a large heavy look.
