Has there ever been a list created of all the chrome frame middleweight bikes manufactured? I'd be interested in seeing a list. My guess is it's a lot larger than I think.
Great question!! Here is my list, that I know of:

- 1961-1967 Huffy Silver Jet
- 1961-1967 Monark Silver King (built by Huffy)
- 1962-1963 Belknap Bluegrass Deluxe (re-trimmed and re-badged Silver Jet)
- Hiawatha Silver Jet (production years known, on the rarer side, no relation to the Huffy bikes)
- Sears Spaceliner
- Murray Astro Flite
- Firestone Silver Cruiser (built by Ross, occasionally Huffy)
- Western Flyer Cosmic Flyer

I know there are others.

Thanks for the list. I also found a few others while surfing the interweb. There is a beautiful Murray built Ranger on fleebay. I did some quick research on it but came up with next to nothing. Maybe you can shed some light on that one.

I'm sure there are others. Thanks for your help and if anyone else wants to add to the list feel free.

"Ahhhh...it's all about the tanklights".
That was my passion when I first acquired the bike collecting madness disease.


Looks like Steve and Adam have pretty much listed the most popular of the "Spaceliner Clones.
It appeared that every retailer wanted their own badged Murray chromed framed bike...it was the "Spuknik" era after all.
There is the JC Higgins Flightliner.

Other than what's mentioned already...I can't think of any others right now.
