Vince, thats not yard art! I love rust and patina like that, and if that motor still spins I'd have it operational PDQ! Great find........

I had to take it out of the front yard.Too many people stopping and checking it out.One guy said to put it away because its worth $400 non running and about $1000 in running condition.Now its in my garage taking up room.I think it will get stolen if its left out.lol I might put it up for sale because its a pain in the butt to keep moving it.

LOL! Sounds like you my friend have a bad case of buyer's remorse! Should have stuck with a 1950s base model Schwinn!

Got a pair of Spaceliners.
$200. Now the fun part- getting them rideable. I love projects!

I got the taste of tinfoil in my mouth when I looked at this picture. Congrats on a GREAT pair bikes. very envious. Closest I can get is a pair of 35 wards silverkings... not spacey enough.

Nice pair

JWM...nice.
Please add the pics to the "lets see your chromed Spaceliner styled bike" thread.

Even the fork tips still have the painted accents. I can't tell for sure but, they both look like "7 bar" tank versions with the tank tabs on the bottom down tubes. Then if that is the case the front forks shouldn't have the front springer....I could be wrong though. I have been before.
Serial numbers will tell you for sure.

$200 for one is what you usually see...$100 ea...is rare ;)
I need a find like that!!!

They are, indeed "7" tank versions. The front spring bar on the springer on the boys' bike was a little tweaked. I straightened it out, but the spacing between the bar and the forks is still uneven. It clears OK, though. Unfortunately the front hub on the boys' bike is cracked around both cups. A friend of mine has offered a replacement, so that's another task that needs done. Both bikes have a clean battery tray in the rear rack, but I'm not sure what sort of tail light goes with the racks. And after looking at Spaceliner threads both here, and at RatRaod bikes, I haven't seen a rear carrier like the ones on these bikes anywhere. Odd. Spaceliner stuff is very hard to find. I'll probably end up making some sort of replacement.

Hard to match the finds of Trexlertown last weekend, but scored a Delta "rooster" horn for 85.00 shipped off ebay, which was a great deal in original silver paint with the decal.
Thankfully, I don't need a 20" schwinn tank.
