    I'm trying to purchase this one, currently, but this bike doesn't look quite like the Bexel Flyer I see here and there when I image search, but I can't find any indications it was re-released or anything about a Flyer that wasn't the one connected to the early 1970's Bexel promotion. Anyone have any wisdom for me? When was this made? Is it a more modern vintage style re-release? Why can't I find it anywhere online?
