Murray muscle bike? Posted this last night on the wrong catagory. I got this today. 20$ I got them down 5$ since I drove 40 min for it. Bike rolls and moves freely. Needs tires and pedals. I’m not sure if this is a Franken bike but it’s neat as all...

That’s unique. I’m guessing someone created that from a Sears / Higgins Flightliner (Murray built). No doubt well worth the $20!

The frame looks like my 24" Flightliner. However, this green banana seat bike has no bracket to hold the Flightliner tank. Without a tank bracket, it could be a Sears Spyder.

That would be coolest! I made my guess assuming there never was a 26” Spyder. Looks like fun no matter what.

"Here is some serial number/model number info that may help. It may be a Murray.
I believe that your suspicions are correct.
What threw me off was the model number 502-4512.0.
I believe it should have been stamped with a 6, like 502-46xyz.
505-4512's may have been from an earlier era (505-Monark?).

46801, 46301, or 46901 might be more appropriate for a 1958-1963? Murray-built Higgins or Sears Flightliner.

Looks like the first numbers are actually 24x8. it is not a Sears, or it would have started with 502.
X8 indicates that you have a 1964 Murray.
Just my opinion.
