Flying Girl???...

I found this little bike recently and have been trying to find out some more info on exactly it might be as the previous owner had no idea.



The closest thing I can come with so far is possibly a Raleigh "Flying Girl".. It appears similar to the bike shown in the following link:
https://https://www.oldbike.eu/museum/...e-flying-girl/

The bike is in pretty poor condition, it appears that a previous owner has tried to remove the word "girl" from the frame as the paint in these areas are particularly bad.

If anybody can offer anything further it would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers!!

It seems the previous owner was a bit insecure about his masculinity.

Looks to be a later road brake bike made after the 1950's likely from India or China where these type bikes have been made up to present. You can usually find examples of these in fairly nice condition for around $150. In its current shape it really isn't worth much would likely cost more to fix up in to riding condition than it's worth.
