Western Flyer Barn Find

I know it's not the find of a lifetime, but these two did spend at least the last 20 years in a heated warehouse. They are pristine. The seller says they belonged to his grandparents, who both died many years ago. I got the pair for $200; they're rideable right now. They appear to be completely original, except for the tires on the Men's. If I'm reading the sparse literature correctly, these were made by Murray for Western Auto in the early 70's. Does anybody else have info, or do you know someone that does?

Those would be fun bikes to give to charity.

They're going with us on the back of the RV. They're old school, and they're made for riding around parks and stuff. Cute as hell, too.
