Posted by: scott TITLE: MIDDLEWEIGHT:   Daughter found a bike
My daughter found this bike over the weekend, as best as we can tell it~s a Western Flyer Sonic Flyer. Found lots of info on models from the 1950 era but this seems to be mid-late 60~s. Any help as to what she found would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks
Scott

I don~t know if you ever watch the Andy Griffith show, but in a few episodes you~ll see a bike that looks similar to this one. I believe it~s the Roadmaster Hawk. Opie is riding it a few times, but I believe the first time it~s ever seen on the show is when there~s a "rich" kid that has a new bike. Keep your eyes open for it. :O)

I believe AMF Roadmaster actually made this bike for Western Flyer. It~s probably a mid 60~s model bike, of course the handlebars aren~t original. Attaching a link to a pic from a book I have with old bike advertisements. It shows a AMF Roadmaster Hawk, which has the same chain ring and chainguard as your bike.

Boy those fenders look just like the ones on my 1945 Columbia.
