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!

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.
