So I just picked up this hornet from a lady down the street. She says it's a 55 or 56, I was just wondering what year it looks like to you guys? I was thinking a 56? And what type of value does this bicycle have?

I'm also confused about the numbers on the tank. Has anyone seen a tank with numbers on it like so?

Is that a 20 or 24" Hornet? The numbers on the tank were applied by a previous owner. You'll need the serial number and location to verify the year.

Okay, missed one- chain guard threw me off- looking for deluxe- but not on a Hornet- You`re right.----Cowboy
I only know because I have the same bike in red and white for my daughter and have been looking for one for my son. I've studied the angles of the frames in many pics lol.
