I picked this up a few weeks ago. This is my ‘56 western Flyer. It has the original Davis tires, everything is original except the headlight. The headlight that is on there is a very rare middleweight Schwinn panther headlight. I would love to trade for a correct x-53 delta headlight.

I hope I can eventually find the correct light. Your right, the schwinn light doesn’t belong. The previous owner didn’t know what happened to the original
Worse case scenario buy the ebay repop😒. It'll fit the bill for some bills & you can keep the Schwinn light if ya want.

I have someone who has one with an original bottom but a reproduction top and they want my headlight and $125 in order to get the x-53 light. Here are the pictures. I don’t really think I’m getting a good deal at that price

Nahhh. Here's the ebay light complete

I wouldn't pay but the $125 for it personally considering the whole light NEW repop isn't much more but I also don't have a bike that nice. Original metal etc is the only way to go with some.

The light that I pictured is complete. But your right why spend 125 and my light when I could get a complete repop for a lot less. I think a straight up trade is more worth it without $125 on top. My light is worth around $275. That means they think there light that is half original is worth $390. I don’t think it’s worth spending over $200 just because the bottom electrical tray is original.

I agree. Keep your light and buy a repop if they don't want to do a straight trade. I like the Schwinn light because it is a dual setup but I also understand originality to a degree is what it takes to make some 🤤drool the hardest over. Just my personal opinion. Good luck👍🏻 Keep us updated.

Wore out three sets of tires already!
I have a repop off ebay, will sell.
I paid 105.00
Make an offer.
It took me a year to find an original and about 350.00
Mine should have the chrome top, but, I painted metallic red like the rest of my bike.
I am putting it together as we speak.
The only part, I need is a complete rear reflector.
