Look Ma, No Hands!
Here is my Western flyer X53 Project. It is about 90% done now just waiting on wheel restoration and some new rubber.
I had it rechromed and painted. I did add my own twist to the chainguard dubbing it "El Mariachi"

Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Your Western Flyer X53 just took me back to Christmas of 1953. That's when I received my X-53 @ Western Auto Stores.. It was gold & red with
chrome fenders. I remember that the red had a "metallic" cherry red . I remember my father had to reverse the bike stem so I could reach the
handlebars. Retail was about $75 , which was a lot back then! Thanks for posting your bicycle.

Hello Mrs Cleaver, my that's a lovely dress. Might I impose upon you and borrow Theodore's X53?

Dave, I am hoping! Besides, whats cinco de mayo without a mariachi?

Man if you ever wanna sell that I have a crisp $20 bill waiting for ya ;)

Real nice! I noticed that there's something reflecting in the chrome that's turquoise colored, so difficult to photograph shiny things sometimes. That's why I often wear a hat LOL

Finally riding a big boys bike
Hello, my name is Ima...


I'm a droolin'.

What a dream ride that bike is! If there was one bike I must get a hold of, it would be THAT! (minus the custom name though). Thank you for the pictures and the step by step pics before.

I wish I can get mine to be half as nice as that one at least! Still missing parts!
