Assuming the bike has a head badge, what does it say on it and is it a boys or girls bicycle ? Also are there any graphics anywhere on the bike that might help identify ?

males bike. All black.No graphics, but the wheels are whitish with 2 red pintripes on each wheel. The badge says Firestone Cruiser and below that " made in usa . Front "smaller forks" with 2 springs at top. Ill have to look on your site for pics and see if I can reference anything I see like it, since my discriptions so far are not too clear. It has its model and serial number on an alum like plate below the pedal frame . The MN is180 39 A7 & SN 1734286. Its got no fenders or extras on it . No orig seat. Handle bars look possibly orig. mabe even the red plastic or rubber handle bar grips? Guess Ill stop trying to describe stuff and wait until i can send a pic or if I see something on a website.
Best I could measure below

1- frame is 17 or 18" (center lower frame to top of top frame. Im not sure how to measure height when the top bar curves downward about an inch. So I figured both ways and come up with 17 & 18" Ht
2- Wheels: 22 5/8 dia x 1.25 to 1.75 in rim width.
3-New Departure brake

yep..i.d. say exactly. It has what looks like a Dual Springer Bicycle Bike Fork I saw on a monark a few minutes ago on ebay. Is there a place I can search these bikes in a more organised fashion?I have only been able to see random bikes in different positions and angles so I miss the details Im looking for.
Ill try and search later tonight(pst)

Unless the Monark book shows that model or someone has a Firestone catalog it may not be possible. The thing is by the time you chase all those parts you could probably buy one complete. Unless this thing has sentimental value and money is no object then I would either go rat or custom. V/r Shawn

no sentimental,but I wont completely dismiss the possibility,otherwise I tend to like it with its original chrome and paint.Real weathered but no rust on body. Rough to the feel chrome,but not peeling. Too bad its been outside for the last 20 years here in PalmSprings Ca . Its does get some rain...1-4 inches a year I think and bunch of sun. The 25 years before that I think it was usually inside more than outside. Looks good considering.
