    We have an old hiawatha bike (don't know how old though), and dad's gonna scrap it come this Monday so I just wanted to know if I should try to save it.
    It's green, back tire is missing totally, still has fenders and the mini tank, lotta rust though.

    Give it a way. Someone will restore it, or salvage some parts.

    NEVER EVER SCRAP A BIKE (unless it's from a big box store)

    Depends on what year the bike is. If it's a 1930 to 1940 Arrow model then by all means keep and restore it. They had a 50's bike with a built in headlight, that was really cool and worth keeping.

    Whatever it is, clean it up real well and wax it and see how it looks when your done, you may be surprised and want to keep it. It is your dad's, you may want to keep it just for that reason alone.
