1976 Westen Flyer Mean Machine

Western Flyer Mean Machine South Africa

This bike was found hanging in a storeroom at the back of a bicycle shop. it had been there since 1976 when a fellow bmx restorer found it. being a bit younger than me, he had never seen one before. I begged him for a year to sell it to me and eventually he relented after I tempted him with a Hutch frame. Since I was a kid in the 70's I always wanted one. The chances of finding one so original with unharmed plastics, usually destroyed by the sun and winter, comes once in a lifetime. Because its made by Western Flyer South Africa, i'm guessing it might be the only one in the world in this condition. The bad part is, I can't take any credit for restoring it.
