A wonderful example of Western Flyer Skis with perfect logos seen here.  If this name sounds familiar its because Western Flyer was a popular brand name for Western Auto Supply Company.  It is said that George Pepperdine started the company with $5 in 1909.  If that name rings a bell its because he later founded Pepperdine University in California.  Western Flyer's brand name was found on Bicycles, toy trains, scooters, etc.  I have seen literally thousands of antique and vintage skis in my life and I have only seen a few Western Flyer skis.  Read more on the history of Western Supply Company.

There is a small divot on each tip (presumably with a great off-piste skiing story), however the chips are hardly noticeable from a distance.  These would look great on the wall, as the logos are still very colorful and intact.
