Hiawatha bicycle

The Hiawatha bicycle brand was originally sold by the Gambles Hardware chain and were popular from the late 1930s to the 1960s. The bikes were primarily manufactured by the Chicago Welding Company or the Shelby Manufacturing Company, although some were made by the Murray and Huffman companies. (Huffman later evolved into the popular bicycle brand of Huffy.)

Hiawatha bicycles were primarily touring bikes, designed for comfort on long-distance road trips, with their heavy frames, fat tires, and fat seats. While the Hiawatha bicycle name may not be as well-known as some of the other brands from that era, they are still highly collectible, prized by post-war bicycle collectors. Because there were produced in lower numbers than some other brands, they are difficult to find, especially in prime condition. Perhaps the most collectible bike from this brand is the late 1930s Arrow model, which was manufactured by Shelby. Its extreme styling was similar to Shelby's Airflow model.
