Western Flyer Freedom II 86/87
Here is a bike I just finished. Had a tight budget of $250 for this one.
new tires, tubes, cables, grips, pedals, brake pads. Replaced the front reflector. All white parts received new powder coat from Cains Coating (832-527-1607...... Kevin Cain does great work, take a look at the brake calipers. He gets the black MX on top of the white. And he is bike guy first powder coated second). Reworked all the mechanics, did a 2 day bleach on the wheels. Green paint is Original and in good shape. This bike has what you would call the economy package. There was another that came with the rotor headset and the GT style cheese grater chain ring. Bike now rides again and heading to Granite City, IL where it will be ridden by OG owners 8 year old son. Last pic before shot.

Those stunt pieces are bringing me back to sweltering parking lots of the eighties. I love the little platform behind the headtube the rear platform pegs, and the double cross bars on the handle. Makes me want a freestyle bike to play around on

Great job this bike reminds me of the bike i bought when I got my first job from the western auto. Bought it around the same time as this bike but if remember right it had straight twin top tubes.
