    This is a 1931 Elgin Western Flyer. We were lucky enough to discover at a local auction. We purchased it and have recently finished refurbishing it. It looks completely amazing now. We'd love to get more information on this if anyone knows anything about it. The serial number on the bottom says 13127 MFW. Weve done quite a bit of research on this bicycle but we'd still love to know more so if there is anyone out there who can provide us with more information that would be fantastic. I will post a new picture of it completely refurbished when I get the first chance!

      Would be nice to find an original chain guard, they were standard on bikes of this vintage........
