1957 Monark Deluxe

Starting in the mid 1950’s manufacturers such as Monark started offering new middle-weight models to compete with other makers. Kids wanted these new middle-weight bicycles because they were easier to pedal and had a more modern appearance. Like other makers, Monark was not tooled up for a completely new line of bicycles, so older balloon tire models were slightly modified and fitted with new middle-weight tires. This 1957 Monark Deluxe is an example of this.
