Picked up this old boy in Irving Texas.

1930 non badged Westfield tall frame.
There are no holes for a badge on the head, nor trace that there ever was. Serial #H54243

The seat tube is a solid 22", while sitting upright on aired up No. 79 Giant Chain Tread tires, the stand over is 33". The saddle is nestled on on 7 post at a proud 40" above pavement, with the tires aired at 40lbs.

The original handle bar is destroyed, bent in a number of directions, it has been removed presently and a modern long horn sits in its place.

The steel clad wood wheels are in fair shape, they may be able to be trued, the rear is close to straight, the front is about 1/2" out for a 12" portion. I am soaking the nipples in penetrating oil to see if I can get them free. I seriously doubt that I will attempt to ride it again on these wheels, the United States Tires are just to fragile for their age. While they do hold and maintain 40lbs, I am uncomfortable leaving them inflated to that and have reduced them to 20. The rubber fatigue has to be great on them.

The stock Morrow coaster functions, stops well, however it is sloppy and needs to be serviced. The front hub spins freely, yet should be serviced due to age.

Overall the frame is solid, a few minor dings, the fork is the same. The stem is solid and no stripped or rounded nuts or bolts on the machine.

I rode it as is today just around 100 feet, aside from the front wheel being out of sorts, the machine rides nicely. The only difficulty is getting in the saddle.

The carrier is solid. The bike has mismatched pedals. The chain is in great condition, no cracks, very pliable. The fenders have a fair share of damage, but should clean and straighten up without much work.

It is an impressive bicycle, that time forgot and left to rot in a shed for years.

Wow - I love the westie. Hate the seat though. ;) :pToo bad the handlebars were jacked. Do you have a project rides thread for this one or at least an updated photo? Good thing it was left to rot in a shed for years and not thrown away or left outside. One day I may be so lucky to find a rusty rider like that.
