Default '59 Western Flyer, noob

whats up guys, im new to this whole gasbike thing, but want to save money on gas, i live in town and dont really have need for a car unless its rainin. i searched the web looking at pics of peoples bikes, the numerous styles surprised me, so i settled with trying to find a vintage bike (i like the way they look,) so i was crusin around town and found this one, its a '59 26 in western flyer, the serial number on it is 0523051, and from what ive read online people play lots of money for em, it was in pretty nasty shape when i got it and i totally forgot to take a picture of it b4 starting work on it, herse some pics, still in the sanding process.

Welcome to the Forum. Great bike, super price. I had one just like it in the early 60's, upside-down steerhorn handlebars and all! And, the Wisconsin Dells is a totally awesom place to ride a bike/trike, especially motorized. Foliage, rock colors, clear water are beautiful, especially in the fall!

Welcome. Nice score on the bike. It will make a real nice MB. I pass through the dells on my way home to northeastern Minnesota in a week or so. I always enjoy seeing the country there.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
