    Need help identifying year of Western "Galaxy" Flyer

    Western Flyer was the store brand of bikes sold in Western Auto Stores. Just about every U.S. major manufacturer produced bikes for them over the years, and a couple of European makers as well. Differences from a late 60s or 70s Murray are the length of the fenders, plating process on the rims...

    Yeah, moon bars can look cool, bit they usually suck functionally on pedal bikes.

    Welcom Back Cottered...

    Cotter crank? RUN AWAY!!! Seriously though, the only suggestion I have is get the fattest replacement pins you can find, if they're too big you can grind them down. Once you have some fitted, don't try to tighten them with the nuts, drive them in and then snug the nuts to keep them in place. A...

    New Member from N. Alabama

    A few decades ago, my only means of transportation for several years was by bicycle, but now it's just a hobby. Fortunately for me, the W&OD rail to trail conversion is about 2 miles from my home. There is also the C&O canal something like 15 or 20 miles, but I haven't ridden it in a years...

    New, looking for suggestions

    Narrow firm modern saddle, better stem and handle bar that isn't rusted, as far as wheels, fitting anything but EA3 (26"x1 3/8") will be an iffy proposition. The tires are available, but new rims will be expensive, IF you can even find them. What's wrong with the old ones?
