    That is AWESOME! I have seen a few checkerboard tires and pedals over the years, but have never seen them on a bike in total. VERY cool!

    That is an AMF built bike, badged as and sold by Western Flyer. If I had to guess, I would say that is a 1970. Before 1970 pedals used on most off-brand muscle bikes would have been dual red line pedals, and they would have had red line tires. Since it doesn't have the BMA-6 sticker on the seat post, which was added to bikes in 1971, my guess is 1970.

    Would that be in line with how old you were when you had yours?

    Very cool bike!

    Shoot, that's a good friend. When I was a kid I had a '64 Coppertone Stingray. Let him know, I'll be waiting. Only kidding of course. Darn nice bike.
