Posted by: teresa lake TITLE: AGE / VALUE: Vintage American Flyer (RED)??
Found this at a local estate sale. Looked to be in decent shape, of course American Flyer is painted on this red bike. Any idea how old this is or can anyone tell me anything about it? :)

Its 50th birthday can~t be many years away. Early to mid 60~s. There are devices that can fix the fender damage, the most sophisticated being sets of rollers you pass the fender through- the simplest being a two-by-four cut to the fender~s radius (the small radius, that is) that you rest the fender on the outside curve of and knock out the dents with the inside piece and a hammer.

American Flyer cycles are not all that common.
That looks extremely clean. Was it restored?
I see stuff in our archives about that cycle.
