    JD, I just love those tanklight bikes. The chrome Spaceliner bikes were made for Sears, also? Did the men's bike just come in red or could you get it in blue? I'm gonna buy one from you someday, whenever I can finish my '73 Orange Krate project. Thanks for starting the thread. I'll have to read the rest of it. You got me interested in tanklight bikes. I need one to cruise around on. Of course, I'll have to get my wife a tanklight bike, if she wants one.

    JB....value on the all complete men's 7bar can get crazy depending on the time of year or season. Spring, when everyone is ready to ride....can go for upwards of $400.....however in the off season you can possibly find one in the $250 range.
    Because this is the plastic tanked model they are hard to find without damage unlike their older brother metal straight bar version.
    Nice looking bike you have for sure. The elusive men's and girls 7bar model is still in my wish list.
    I must admit, with the number of bikes I presently own, the chromed framed forward thrusted tanklight models will probably never depart from my collection. I do LOVE my chromed framed "Spaceliner" styled bikes.

    The wife loves the purple one. I just finished that one. The men's Spaceliner is totally original, even the Allstate tires. Tail light looked brand new inside, works great.

    That is quite possibly the nicest, original condition, Spaceliner I've ever seen. If you ever get the urge to sell, shoot me a message ;)

    Nice HIDDEN.
    painted frame looks to be a Western Flyer.
    Chrome looks to be close to an all original Deluxe Spaceliner. I'll assume it is a dual switched tanklight model. Rare to find these with the tailight lens.
    Needs the correct pedals.

    Ya, the painted frame is a western flyer cosmic flyer. They both seem to be fairly original. The Spaceliner is a springer deluxe with the two speed hub.

    This is a copy of what I posted in your other thread about this.

    If the serial number starts with MOW, then it definitely isn't a Spaceliner (or any other bike from Sears). Sears serial numbers begin with 502.

    MO signifies it was built by Murray. Murray built bikes under their own brand name as well as under contract for many other brands (even though Murray built many bikes under the Sears or J.C. Higgins label for Sears, the serial numbers will always start with 502).

    The W indicates it was built in 1963 (which incidentally pre-dates the first year of Spaceliner production, anyway).

    64 indicates the model (but I'm not familiar enough to tell you what it is).

    The X10 indicates the bike was built for Western Auto, which means the bike brand is a Western Flyer. This is the key bit of info. you're looking for.

    Once you post a picture, somebody will be able to identify your bike model pretty quickly.

    Thanks this has really helped me, I am waiting for my son to help me take pictures and post, he is familiar with it. the bike is not complete and not worth a lot but love to search out and find information on old stuff.

    My 7 tank space liner with working light and working rear, flashing tail light. Original Allstate tires in perfect condition, no wear or cracking and Allstate tubes. though front lens was broken in transit and had to replace that.

    A chrome, girls space liner i got for a friend. All original down to Allstate tires and tubes (now stored and riding on new rubber) Everything works, including the rear, flashing tail light

    I'm an old guy hunting for an almost as old Flightliner, but I just have to say you've done an incredible job of bringing the old and new together. You really show off the timeless beauty of that old Spaceliner design. Bravo!
