I need some help! I have resently aquired an old Western
Flyer tricycle. I would like to restore it to its original
colors if I can. I know that it was red and white. I just
don't know how the colors were arranged. I belive that it was made in the 50's, it has two steps on the back and the
more rounded handlebars. If anyone can help I would sure be grateful. Blue

MISC:   Need Information posted by: Jr Luke on 7/8/2003 at 2:21:01 PM
I have an old bike I found when I bought my house. It says "Coast King" on the front, and I believe it's from the 1960's. Can anyone give me some information about what's it's worth?? Please email me at jrluke1@yahoo.com. Thanks...


   RE:MISC:   Need Information posted by robert on 7/15/2003 at 2:14:49 AM
all i can tell you is it was sold at Coast to Coast hardware stores. they generally are not worth that much. i am not sure what model you have or anything. i have had several of them and could not sell them, so i stripped them down and tossed the frames.
you might be lucky enough to have a "good" one though. good luck!
