1949 Western Flyer 26

Fire Road Rat Rod

This is 1949 Western Flyer with Cleveland Welding.  I built it up as a fire road cruiser.
I left the frame in found condition, dirt and all.  I decided to leave the Akisu forks and Schwinn tubular 2.125 rims in foundcondition as well.  It has a nos Shimano MX coaster hub laced4 cross with 12 ga. spokes. Redline cranks with 39t sprocket,DK stem, and some MR. Tick bars in raw finnish it off!!!


Consumed with Cruisers

That's very cool!!  I totally dig it!cool

Always looking for Cook Bros. stuff, vintage SE stuff,  MCS 6 bolt Super stems,  and Race Inc. Leading Edge/Cycle Pro/BMX innovations 20" forks.  All NOS or in very nice condition.

Very cool bike and very cool build! I have a late 70's Schwinn 26" Cruiser I want to do like this.

Don't confuse effort with results!
