Default Scored a buider today.....

Took a little trip over to a small town called Comanche today, about 15 miles from where I live, as I was driving in I happen to see what looks to be a new little used odds and ends store putting in, out on the sidewalk I see this interesting looking older bike, figured on my way back out of town I'd drop by and have a closer look, I stopped ask a lady what it would take to get it bought and after going inside to ask she came back out and told me $75, I told her that was a bit much considering the front wheel is ruined with deep rust and... blah blah blah....

told her Id give $50, after another trip inside she returned with a thumbs up on the $50, some may think that is to much but this frame is unique and in excellent condition, rear wheel is a keeper, fenders on this bike are thick, its got a nice beefy weight to it.

Looks like this frame was built for the china girl almost.

By the way it's a Western Flyer, Sears used this frame as well as Western Auto for the Western Flyer, I believe that it was called a Golden Flyer and the Sear bike I found with this exact frame was a 1963 model, so I'm not sure how old this bike is, I also read that most of the Sears and the Western flyer frames were built by either Murray or Huffy back in the day, not sure on all that, just what I read.

Tell me what you think fellas.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
