    Glitter Pedals - Buzz Bike - Western Flyer

    New one for me me. The pedals sealed the deal. Glitter pedals, kind of a no brainer deal. I believe a 1968 Western Flyer Buzz Bike F5. I'll clean it up & see if anyone around here will ride it.

    New Huffy Dragster find. Original owner family

    A new find off Ebay but went & picked it up today (bought yesterday). I believe this is an original 1966 Dragster 3spd. I don't believe they ever had a console. Bike seems right except for the dual redline tires (missing but I do have correct rear slick). Anyone have a 20 x 1.75 dual redline for...

    Prewar Board track replica frame has me perplexed

    I've been researching for the last week trying to identify this frame. Straight bar but curved downtube & reverse dropouts? I think it was a more modern frame with the two top tubes welded in. Then I look at the back half & looks postwar? Did it start life as a woman's frame? Is it a real deal...

    1968 Sears Spyder

    Not really "found" as much as 1st one to respond to a FB Marketplace post. I'm not collecting like I once was but when the price is a giveaway I can't resist. I have truly lost the bike hunting & hoarding passion but still know a deal when I see it...:grin: Pretty nice bike with original...

    Western Flyer Ballooner + AMC?

    On one of those new sale apps I saw these bikes posted a couple weeks ago along with a couple others. I responded today to the ad & he said he'd only get $2 at the scrap yard & didn't even want to spend the gas. The price was FREE but the bikes will need cleaning & that's what I'm going to do...

    Panther Pink Schwinn Krate

    Not a fresh find but was back in November when I bought this. It started life out as we think a Lemon Peeler. But is VERY ROUGH conditions. I acquired most parts locally & didn't want just another Krate in one of the 6 (7) factory colors. I wanted to build a tribute to the Mopar high impact...

    1969 20" Sears Spyder

    I had a buddy pick this up fir me last week from some pictures. I loved the seat & the Rear slick. The rear rear tire & the seat are not correct for this particular bike but sure do make a better look.

    HUFFYY MADE? FOX ROWLETT'S 20 BOYS TANK BIKE Richmond, VA

    Just picked up from Estate Sale. Never heard of a Fox, also had a 26" girls but no room for it. So the 20" is original paint red/white & truss forks. Looking closer at this bike I think it might be Huffy or Murray made but not as old as first thought. It looks to have pressed welds on the rear...
