    Well, it is definitely a Murray-built bike. Murray ruled department stores with an iron fist. It could be any number of brands or models. That is a common frame, used from 1958-(roughly) 1985 or so.

    Is there any outlines on the headtube? Perhaps where a badge used to be? What is the serial number?

    Looks like a 1960s Coast-King frame I just found one like it. It could also be a Flight-Liner frame.

    The color is a dead ringer for a Western Flyer Grand Trophy too.
