I live in an rural SE AZ area. Found this bike. Need assist in age and style i.d. please. # is D1678A8 or 9 with an SE in circle above. I've washed the dirt off. How can I polish the chrome fenders? What parts are missing? Value??Thanks for help.
That's funny Archie: How'd you know we have a lot of broken pottery on our ranch?The "SE" may stand for Snyder Enterprises, who built bikes for Montgomery Ward for years.
Can you see a "M" and "W" on the front fork?
Start with soap and water, and maybe let the buyer decide how and what to do to her bike.
Worth a few onions more than broken pottery.

Major DUH on my part. I only had eyes for my bike. Didn't realize you were referring to the broken pottery pieces and onions behind it. Sorry for sounding dumb.That's funny Archie: How'd you know we have a lot of broken pottery on our ranch?
I always use tin foil and water or wd-40 works well also. Good luck!Thanks for the info. Town for us is 15 miles away. Dirt ranch roads and thorny mesquite bushes plus dodging rattlesnakes makes for interesting cardio on bikes. How do I clean the rust spots off the chrome. I want to shine it up for resale.
Good looking bike. I would ride it for a while before selling it. If you really feel ambitious i would throw a pair of white walls on it. It certainly won't hurt the resale either. Enjoy the ride. Razin.2 hrs cleaning. She looks much better. Thanks everyone. Still hoping to learn the if there is a model name.
