    Seems a fair price at $100-150.
    Shame it's a girls bike.

    Nice beautiful bikes since the last time I looked, as soon as I get rid of some bikes I will finally get to my Spaceliner.

    JD56 I bet you remember this bike. Many of pieces came from a girls JC Higgins donor bike I bought from JD also. Recent upgrade was a Bendix kick back. I now have all the pieces to build it back stock, maybe some day.

    Kenny is that the chromed frame I gave you or did I sell it to you? Dont matter I want it back....lol
    If I only new you had the magic, I would have had you do all my work and just sit back and reap the finger pointing from the admirers.
    Still havent forgot the ride we talked about but just been too dang busy to do anything enjoyable.
    We may have to wait for the spring.
    Nice job on the Higgins.

    24" Spaceliner in rare "Coppertone"

    Why, Why, Why do people paint bikes?? I just picked up this "one-of-a-kind", Coppertone Spaceliner - a 24" tire bike. I believe the 24" models were made only in '64 & '65. Green paint & chrome undernearh. I also picked up a gallon of laquer thinner & some rubber gloves at the Home Depot on my way home!

    So this was an original coppertone or was it green?
    Either way Ive never seen either color on any type of chrome spaceliner styled bike.

    The 24" boys and girls models were made during the entire Spaceliner run, but the design (and model number) changed in '66. It looks like you have the deluxe 24" girls bike (model 46971) that was built in '64 & '65. After that the design changed to the thrust forward configuration and the 24" girls deluxe became model 46972 from '66 through '68.

    What's the serial number, by the way?

    Nice 7 bar

    Caprice, thanks for posting the pic.
    Nice mens 7 bar.
    I assume the tanklight is inop?
    Did you repaint the tank and rear rack?

    These 7 bar parts are hard to find and having them all together is a plus.

    Good looking bikes, It would be cool if someone made reproduction tanks and rat trap springer forks like they do the Schwinn's tanks & forks.

    DJ nice pair. Two for one is the way picks should be. And two liners to boot, you just cant beet that.
    Thanks for posting the pics here.
    I'll keep an eye out for the girls tank. They do pop up every once in a while. Usually on a complete bike though.
    Because these are plastic tanks they usually are cracked or damaged in some way. But, girls bikes are more likely to materialize than the ever elusive boys model.

    65 Western Flyer Strato Flyer

    Seems I forgot to show this one off here.
    1965 Western Flyer "Strato Flyer"
    It needs the correct seat but all else is correct. The Chromed frame needs the foxed clearcoat removed (my fingers hurt all ready just thinking about it).

    Love these lenses!!

    64 girls Monark Silver King

    Here is an all correct near mint 1964 badged Monark (Huffy built) Silver King. This is a beauty.
    Even has the always broken front fender ornament tail fin.

    The Dual Switch panel....ahhhhh!

    And of course the hard to find rear taillight and rear rack complete.

    Nice ladies Spaceliner

    Not mine (yet) but it deserves a showing
    Ladies Spaceliner deluxe (minus the 2 spd kickback). Believe the grips are wrong as well. It's a shame the chromed spinner hub is no longer chromed.

    Spaceliner Deluxe all original even the tubes and tires

    So I picked this up awhile back on craigslist. Complete rust bucket. Still working on her. She has the original allstate sears tires and allstate sears tubes. Rides like a champ. Love it. All lights work. just had to clean the contacts a little. hope you enjoy.

    thanks

    thanks

    Thanks jd56. Not sure what these are worth these days. I know the 7bars are hard to find. 100% og down to the tubes and tires. All lights and horn work as well.

    Thanks
