Next project is this western flyer. Not sure on a year for it. Also forgot to get a pic of the serial number. Can anyone tell me a year on it with out serial number? Planning on cleaning it up and polishing rust away. And then sell it, but I always seem to keep them after I'm done hahaha. Thanks guys!

This one will be a fairly quick project and I'll be selling it as a "bar bike". Going to try clr on that rust and see if the og paint comes back to life

Got it in the shop tonight. Soaking it down with penetrant. Took a few more pictures, crank hits the frame a tiny bit, so I may change that out for a diff one. Super light so I am thinking it will make a great bar bike for someone. Here are a few more pics.

What is a "bar bike"?

I MIGHT have a spare crank for this exact style of Huffy. I will have to check when I get home Friday night though.

A bar bike is a bike that would be used as transportation when you go bar hopping. I got the crank set in good working g order and cleaned up now. Thanks though!

The fork is not original? The patina matches (I was going to say "paint" but thought better of it), so I would have never guessed. What's the tip-off?
Some one painted this bike, so that's why it matches color wise. Not sure on how to tell the difference of what was stock for this guy. I will be waxing the paint so it shines a bit, I have already steel wool and wd40'd the frame.

Finally got it all finished up. Came out great and it rides amazing. Hate to sell it but it's up for sale. Need to move on to the next one now.
