    Here is my Western Flyer, have not done anything to it yet. Picked up at a swap meet last year for $50.00 bucks. Anybody have any idea on what year this might be from. I am thinking I will just clean up and ride sometime this summer. Nothing fancy but it is still cool. Leo

    Here is a Galaxy Flyer, made by Murray. I built it for my son. Nice bike, but heavy.

    Here's my "Red Hot Rod". I've got kind of a ratty fat whitewall to put on the back but haven't done it yet.

    I've got an early Buzz bike frame hanging in the garage too.
