So I/m ready to join in my first build off, but this ain't my first rodeo as far as fixing up an old bicycle goes. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=71280 I started a thread about this frame when I found it a few weeks ago, and decided to wait until the build-off to begin. The earlier thread has some "back in the day" stories about how I got into these kinda bikes if anyone cares about that. The shorter version of the story of this bike/build is this appears to be a circa 1937 Western Flyer, made by Cleveland Welding Company. I've started gathering parts to build it up as a skip-tooth, Morrow coaster brake and Sturmey=Archer front drum pseudo-klunker, from the "Morrow Dirt Club" era I suppose. This will be pretty much the first wheels I've built myself but probably the 6th or so rattle can paint job I've done. Lots of decisions to make still, but there are many things I do know already: I love this frame. The seat will be low. The Morrow hub is super-bad axx. It weighs a ton and if you dropped it on your toe you might die. It's built like a german tank. I need a cooler front sprocket. I need a cool gooseneck. Dunno yet about tires. Maybe white, for sure ballooners. I'm getting some alloy double wall wheels, even tho that's not period-correct for this pre-war inspired build. I've gotta tear down the drum hub and figure out some cable tensioning hardware. It's gonna be black. I've got a lot of rust to remove.
