    Hi, rescued this bike when a friend was about to throw it in a dumpster. Have been trying to figure out what I have. One site said it is a Western Flyer X-53, either "53 or "54, and "more replacement parts than authentic"......but they stated they would want to buy it if I wanted to sell..??.. Can someone tell me what I do have, maybe what it's worth??? Is it not worth messing with. I just think it's kinda cool

      Belknap: I appreciate your response, and any other info you could give me would be great. I am a little confused has an emblem on the bar under the handlebars that says "Western Flyer". Was the bike made by Western Flyer for JC Higgins, or vice versa? As I said before anything else you can tell me would be greatly appreciated----Thanks
