Default Re: can anyone help me id this bike?

Hey- here's a new entry I just saw on Craigslist in Jacksonville- When I saw the frame it seemed an instant match- though no tank on this Western Flyer- the fram does look very much like it- These were sold mostly at Western Auto I think in the 50's and early '60's.

Mens Western Flyer

actually now comparing the two- the frame again is not an exact match- yours is the only one I've seen with the bottom tubes not going on up to the headtube, like the spaceliner and this Western Flyer- Other than that it looks to have rusted chrome fenders- a back rack similar in shape, but not an exact match, and no tank. Also a more typically '60's style crank- so perhaps, again it's a later model- whether it's the same brand or not I'd say a later model- yours still looks very 50's to me

Here's my 1967 Peugeot PX10 in case you haven't seen it!
