    i finished the bike last weekend but weather sucked, and did not get home from work one day this week while there was still light.
    today there was a bit of a break from the rain, so i had to take photos. not ideal, but at least i dont need the flash.

    Frame / Fork: 1961 Sears/JC Higgins Flightliner, flipped rat-trap fork. original tank and rack with original lenses, original chainguard.
    Wheels: chrome drop center rims, Bendix Automatic 2 speed triple red band kickback in rear. Kenda Flame 26 x 2.125 tires.
    Handlebars: 16" Ape Hangers - Black Motocross grips
    Saddle: Custom leather upholstery on Troxel springer saddle.
    Stainless steel chain
    Electra Block pedals
    original wald crank and murray front cog.

    hey, its nothing super duper. i really just wanted to get one good flightliner together that i was happy with to ride.
    i am 100% content with how it turned out.

    Real classy build. Everything looks great.
    Can't believe you have the lenses! Almost none of mine have lenses intact.
    Thanks again for your cast-off FlightLiner parts!
