make / manufacturer: Western Flyer
size / dimensions: 26 inch

I have a 1947 Western Flyer 26" about 70 percent original parts here. Have original fenders, Wheels (rear axle is broken, but skiptooth cog is there) wheels probably have a good saveable set of time and front hub. I have the original handle bars, the original luggage rack, seatpost, and seatpost clamp. I do have the original forks and stem however I had to cut both as they were rusted solid. What on it as it sits that isnt original is the wheel set, forks, stem, bars crank and sprocket. I was building it as a rat bike. However my hangup was not having a seat, the headset being a little sloppy as the bearings were not an exact fit. It has original headset cups and they are bigger around than the bearings in it. Aparently there is a set online you can order for around 10 bucks and fix this problem instantly. Ive had it since about 2015, and its not finished yet. If you are truly interested and not gonna low ball me to the point of no return ill gladly send more in depth pictures. Ive been dealing in bicycles for years and this is the oldest bicycle ive ever found around here it is a 1947 built by huffman for Western Flyer/Auto. It has original paint underneath the red coat on it now, which coincidentally seems to be nearly the exact same color. Head tube badge has a beautiful patina as well. I have a few more vintage bike frames/parts/etc. around too. Thanks for looking 100 cash or best offer will consider trades possibly.
