Posted by: Shannon TITLE: AGE / VALUE:   Prewar?
I picked this bicycle up over the weekend. I~m not sure what I have. It says western flyer and I believe it was made by Huffman. Any info would be appreciated on the age and value of the bicycle.

No sign of a tank or even an indication it had one. Don~t know about front fender but thinks for the tip. I~m new to this so just trying to identify it and est. value. Thanks for your help.

I think Huffman is right. The frame is a good match for a 1940 Huffman Airflyte on nostalgic.net. There~s one a year or two older in that archive with a similar springer. I didn~t check later Huffmans for variation; somewhere on this board is some talk about when Western Auto switched from Huffman to Murray which might help nail it down.
I would have expected a tank on a springer bike. Any sign of a tank? Your front fender is mounted wrong (backwards?) -the rearward braces should be horizontal. Saddle, tires and paint...
