    Western Auto....Galaxy Flyer bicycle

    I'm looking for information about a bicycle I've come across, Galaxy Flyer is on the chain guard and the front tube where the fork is connected reads Western Auto. I'd like to know when these bikes were made and any and every other thing that can be shared. Thank you all.

    When I was 7 I got a Western Flyer for Xmas. First Real bike and I had to get on the porch steps to get on until I grew a little. Good old Western Auto. Got my Ben pearson Bow there too.

    I used to ride one in years ago. Bought it new in 1962, for $35. Here is a link to another website with one that was exactly like mine. [ I think ] At first glance you will think it is a Schwinn.
