Vintage Flying Dutchman Bike - need identification

Vintage Flying Dutchman Bike - need identification & value

I have a vintage bicycle that I donít know much about, other than itís old! Looking for some expertise to advise of date, manufacturer and any info about possible value. Here are the details I have:

Womenís 3-pipe frame single-speed coaster brake bike
Tank has Flying Dutchman label
Down tube has ďCruiserĒ label
Seat tube, Chain guard has Flying Dutchman label
Badge has Flying Dutchman label/logo
Rear coaster brake hub is Centrix JRB 009 Gottschalk Made in Germany West
Front hub is Renak 60 (heard this may be a date ref: 1960)
No markings about manufacturer, age or country of origin

Series of photos can be found on Flickr:

Would appreciate all insight, guesses, hints or other websites that may have further info. Thanks!

I am pretty sure that was made in Germany (West) in the 60's. It looks very similar to my wife's "Flying Eagle," though I changed that to a three speed. I'll try to post a photo tomorrow. The only difference I see is the fender profile and the graphics.

The gas tank (which my wife's bike has as well) is a sure indicator that it was made for the American market.

I'm guessing the tires are 26 x 1 3/8", right?

Value? FWIW My wife paid $5 for hers and loves it, but she doesn't need another one.
