Finally riding a big boys bike
Hello friends, i picked this bike up the other day but im at a bit of a loss with it. I know its a wester flyer frame but im not sure what else is original to the bike. The fenders rack and front fork have been painted black. I know the chaingaurd is from an amf bike and definitely doesn't belong on this. Other than that i dont know too much about western flyers. Any and all thoughts or information about this would be appreciated.

Many different very cool manufacturers made bicycles for western auto stores. http://www.nostalgic.net/western-flyer-bicycles. Somebody should be able to determine which one made this one and what year. It does kinda look pieced together. Looks like it might have an Elgin air cooled rear hub that might have been painted white? Then a leather hub shiner was put on it.... Never seen one of these put on a hub like this though.

Not up on Huffys but, should help get ya started, pretty sure that's a Huffman frame and figure it's prewar too. . CWC built Western Flyers for Western Auto too but that's not them.

I'm guessing Huffman, with Murray truss rods, elgin rear hub. Murray was in the first couple letters of the alphabet prewar, definitely not "R".
