OTSG has finally received its first Western Flyer from Ted in North Carolina.Â These bikes were sold at the now defunct (for the most part) Western Auto auto part stores.Â Pathological nostalgics out there will be pleased to hear you can still shop at a good old fashioned Western Auto (and Home Associates) online, or if you live in the Birmingham, Alabama area you can shop there in person.Â However, I don’t think they sell their own bikes anymore.
was lucky enough to land this beauty off craigslist for $40. had never heard of Western Flyer before coming across this bike and decided to do some research. thought this bike would fit in nicely with the site, being really crappy bike from a now extinct department store. would like to spend some money to replace tires and fix the brakes but may have to put that off until after i graduate from college next month. it gets me to and from class and sometimes bars, so i cant complain. love the site!
