Hi, I just found this site and I'm hoping that I may be able to find some info about a bike I have, and see what steps I may have to go through to restore it.
I have a 1949 Monark Supertwin that has been sitting for the last 55 years. My dad had it from new. I have the original registration and booklet that came with it. I had the thing running about 15 years ago, but my mother wouldn't let me do anything with it, so it went back in the garage until after she passed away. I now have it at home and am contemplating a restoration.
Any help would be appreciated about where to start.

Had the same exact bike brand new as a kid back in 49. Kept it 2 years and sold it for 50 bucks (no brains) There's a picture of me on it in one of the forums. Bought another one in 1998 (rusty mess for 1500.00). Totally restored it but wound up selling it a few years later. Did a Cushman, and now have a Whizzer/Monark i'm finishing up. But that old Supertwin is still my favorite. Take good care of that one.
