What year is my western flyer bicycle the serial number is B3771068?



Similar question asked 3 days ago about a "Firestone" branded bike. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20190124074557AAFrrNm Same answer. Model numbers & serial numbers basically do one thing only. They match up that particular bike to the owner IF the owner is smart enough to make a note of it on the sales receipt. The only website I'm aware of that dates bicycles by serial numbers is Angel Fire. They keep track of Chicago made Schwinn bikes. http://www.angelfire.com/rant/allday101/SchwinnCodes1.html/ Western Flyer was a CHEAP bicycle made by God-knows-who. They have NO collectible value. They are NOT rare or "vintage".

Mtrlpqbiker: From Wikipedia

From Wikipedia: "Western Flyer was an American private label brand of bicycles, tricycles, scooters, play wagons, and pedal cars and tractors, and roller skates, sold by the former Western Auto stores. The trademark brand was first used in June 1931, and the brand of bicycles was sold until 1998. Western Auto had other companies manufacture the bicycles." This bike could have been manufactured by quite a few different companies. The serial number was stamped onto the frame by the frame builder who made the frame for the company whose factory built the bikes. These were mass market bikes. They probably have very little value to a collector. The "year" of such a simple bike makes very little difference. It is the sort of bike that I would expect to be able to buy at a garage sale for $10-$20 as long as it was it like new condition


If a picture is worth a thousand words; then a good video is worth a million words. Make a good through video of the bike completely showing it from multiple angles, with close ups of stand out features and writings. Send it to this forum. They deal with vintage collectable bicycles. https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/firest... They should be able to provide better information to you. Even if your bike is a sought after model, condition, originality and market demand then determines its value.


Might be one of those cheap Chinese knockoffs.
