Look Ma, No Hands!
writing as tips to others, white vinegar, tin foil, Mr clean sponges seems to be great on rust. WD-40 for most old grease, then sparing upgrade to citrus degreaser, and most sparingly, lighter fluid for stickers and bad paint touchups. Anyone use other stuff?

Flightliner never came with the sprocket spinner,
True. The spinners (technically known as turbo-defragolators) were provided on the Spaceliners along with the louvers in the chain guard to prevent chain melt-down at supersonic speeds. Flightliners operated principally at subsonic velocities.

So my question now is do I restore it with the mods as those are from the same period, ... or do I put it back where there seems to be a lot of stock bikes.
Grasshopper:
That is the question without an answer that members of this forum use when we meditate. It is a koan that demonstrates the inadequacy of logical reasoning and provokes enlightenment.

If it is indeed a 24-incher, it might be cool to keep it as an adult-sized muscle bike. Have fun!

@HEMI426 Flightliners did not have the plastic shroud on the chain ring. That started when Sears quit selling the bike as a JC Higgins Flightliner and started selling the bike as a Sears Spaceliner with the 1964 models.
