    Western Flyer Bicycle Fans/Experts need your help!!

    My first post!! I've been reading the forums for awhile and this is a great site.

    I've been a bicycle fan as early as i can remember. Always had a bike and love to ride.
    I love old iron!! Vintage bikes just have so much more style and soul. I recently bought a Western Flyer Cleveland Welding tank bike that I would like to get more info. I've searched and searched but cant seem to find a lot of info. Here is what I know...
    - 3 gil tank model
    - Seller seems to think it's an early 1940's
    - Color scheme (whats left) is not original.

    Here are some pics:






    I don't plan to restore/sell, just want to make it road worthy and enjoy an old relic. Just knowing the approximate year would be nice. Thanks for any info you guys can toss my way.

    Yeah, early 40s. The skip tooth chain and rear facing dropouts usually mean pre 1950 at least. Is that a black chainring? That started about 1942.
    I posted my Cleveland Welding bikes on this thread;

    I have spoken.
