Picked this up dirt cheap just because I thought it was cool with some awesome parts. Looks like some kid's attempt at a chopper in the 60's. I may stick a correct size wheel on the front & fix it up for my grand daughter. I love the patina but she probably won't.
Western Flyer, made in Belgium.
I've had this 1974 Jeep CJ5 for over 30 years & I love it. Just over 45,000 miles on it. Just put new brakes & tires on it recently. Next will be a lift kit, LED light bar & new bumpers. If there are anymore Jeep freaks on the site, show them off!
I got this today at the Bikes at the Ballfield swap/show in Augusta, KS. I think it may be a 1966 model but not sure. Serial # is:S282023. If anyone has any info on these I would appreciate it if you would share. Got it CHEAP!
I'm thinking about jumping in with the bike I entered last year, but didn't get any further than stripping paint & mock ups! Not sure if this is acceptable since it was entered last year & not finished. If it's ok with you guys, I will try to finally make it a rider. My vision has changed...

I guess I'll be the first to bow/wimp out! I have lost interest in the 20" build & my grandson doesn't seem excited about it either. Working a lot lately & don't have time to finish it. Any spare time I do have will be dedicated to building my X-53 frame I just recently found a fork for. My...
My son pulled this out of the dumpster at work today & brought it to me. My wife was thrilled. NOT! Anyway, it screams mini board tracker to me. 1950's? Western Flyer:
My apologies for the crappy pics, all I have is my cell phone camera.
Picked this up today. Made in Germany. Possibly original tires, front is great, back is bald (go figure!) Probably will just clean this up & add it to my Grandson's collection,
Goes real good with this girls Mercury:
Not super fresh but I got this a while back to build for my grand daughter. It's been sitting in the garage for about a year or more. Boxed up in parts. My plan was to completely restore it for her. I put it all together to see what it looked like & now think I will just clean it up & leave...
